Genesee Cream Ale
Here we have Genesee Cream ale, 5.10% ABV, which has been brewed since 1878. This beer is labeled as flavor of a fine ale and smoothness of a premium lager. This cream ale pours a golden color with a one and a half finger bright white head that fades quickly into nice decent lacing. There is tons of carbonation bubble streaming of the bottom and sticking to the side. Lots of light coming through the glass. The aroma on this Genesee Cream Ale, is slightly floral with semi sweet grains. But all are very light scented, but pleasant. I also found a the most faintest of malt scents in there too. The taste on this is somewhat of sweet malts and tiny bit of grassy hops. The mouth feel is light and cleans up nicely with each sip. The finish is a bit creamy and semi sweet with less hops than the start. This Genesse has a great clean and crisp aftertaste with a little creaminess. Overall, I'm giving this a C+. Better than I thought it would be, but still could've been better, you know creamier, a bit sweeter. But still a little above average to me. Getting a C+ all around, and I would have this again, and I would kind of recommend this. So please remember to come down to Mike's Discount Beverages, 4700 Park Rd, Charlotte NC 28209 for all you fine wine and beer! Cheers! Please Drink Responsibly!
