Genesee 12 Horse Ale

The Genesee Brewing Company is in Rochester, New York.  They have been brewing since 1878.

I am a sucker for the stubby bottles, love 'em.  The beer pours a dark honey golden, nearing a hint of copper or orange.  There is a quarter-inch head of white foam.  The aroma is grain, honey sweet, herbal/floral.  The taste is sweet grain and herbal.  There is almost a hint of root beer.  There is a pleasant aftertaste.  The mouthfeel is light, but noticeable carbonation, along with a smooth, creamy element.  This is a very interesting, pleasant, but not great in any way.
