Genesee Ale

Highfalls Brewery

USA

This wasn't the Cream Ale everyone tells us to try; this was the basic ale in their line (if it has a regular name, maybe their fans can tell me it was on tap at a bar, so I couldn't get more details than that). A coworker, originally from upstate New York (a Genny haven) told me to forget the Cream Ale, but try this stuff. It wasn't bad. It was kind of like drinking Miller. Like one of the better mega brews out there. Smooth, a little watery, but finished easily, and washed wings down very nicely. It's not worth stocking the fridge with something like this, but if you want to try different things, this could go on the list, I suppose. I don't think I'll try it again, though, as I can get the same flavor for less money.
