Genesee Cream Ale

Genesee Cream Ale is brewed by the Genesee Brewing Company based out of Rochester, NY. I bet they got some rain on the brewery this past week from Irene. The cream ale is probably their highest distributed beer. It is obviously categorized as a Cream Ale and has 5.1% ABV.

This beer pours a very clear, light golden color with a fizzy white head. It almost touches on straw.

The aroma leaves much to be desired. It is mainly soured grains and malts with some bitter notes and maybe a touch of sweetness.

Flavor matches the aroma almost perfectly, with bitter notes and grains and very little sweetness. This is a beer to pound after a long day of work and then go to bed. Even then….it’s not that good.
