Genesee Cream Ale

Every once in awhile I have a beer I have not had in awhile, but am surprised that it has been so long that it is not on this blog.  This beer is one of those beers. Genesee Cream Ale was introduced in 1960. The Genesee Brewing Company is from Rochester, New York.  It was founded in 1878 and has always been on of America's largest regional breweries.  High Falls Brewery purchased Genesee in 1990. In addition to the Genesee beers, the GBC also does a lot of contract brewing. 

The beer pours a very clear dark golden in color. There is an inch of white, foamy head, relatively long-lasting for the style. The aroma is tangy green apple, vegetable/grain mush, and some wet cardboard. The taste is bland and mild, watered down hot cereal, light note of tangy apple, with less cardboard/chemical than the aroma. There is essentially no bitterness in the finish. The beer drinks with ample carbonation. This is tolerable from the can, not as good poured into a glass.
