Good AAL from one of my favorite breweries. Still like the cream ale better, but I'll by the 30 pack of this when one of the few local stores that carries Genny is out of the cream ale.

I hadn`t had it since 1980. I saw it and bought a 30 pack for 15.00. I was sold. Been drinking it or some other form of Genny since. I wish it were available in bottles here. It isn`t a fancy new age nose in the air type of beer. It is a beer drinkers beer. A sit down with my acoustic guitar on my deck in the summer beer.

Poured a 24 oz tall boy into a styrofoam cup. Excellent head, smell of corn, malt and sweet. Taste: Excellent! The sweet smell is feign but not overpowering by any means. The smell of corn is also prevalent. Here in NJ a 24 oz tall boy costs $.99 cents. A case of 12, 24 oz tall boys cost a reasonable $10.99. A 30 pack costs $15.99. To be honest with you, this is definitely better than Budweiser, Coors and the other macro beers out there. I would definitely recommend this beer to anyone looking for a change of pace from the macro brews. Cheers!

Poured into a custom grip glass: color is straw, light effervescence; head is bright white, fine bubbles, good presence on the pour and nice lacing on the glass.

Smell is sweet, grain, corn.

Taste is similar with grainy sweetness, corn dominant, light grassy hops.

Mouthfeel is moderate, lingering grainy sweetness.

Overall a grainy, sweet adjunct lager, could use more barley malt less corn flavor.

Can poured into a glass appears a clear pale yellow with white head.

Aroma of dirty water, chlorine and skunkiness.

Tastes sweet corn wheat and nothig else other than being lightly fruity.

It is medium in body with modest carbonation. Well, its decent as far as adjuncts go and you could do a lot worse than this.

On tap at the bar across the street from My Airbnb in Schenectady. Crystal clear deep yellow with a thin bubbly white head. Earthy grainy corny notes not the worst beer I had on this trip but far from the best.
