Koch's Golden Anniversary Beer
Genesee Brewing Co.
Rochester, New York
American Adjunct Lager
While shopping for more Christmas beers we stumbled across this beer.
We bought this as a joke, an impulse buy at 3.50 a six pack. But you never know what you will find.
Pours a very pale straw with a bright white head. The head diminished quickly but it actually looks like it will leave some lacing.
The nose is very grainy with a little almost German skunk in the background. There is little to no hop aroma.
Wow, that was a whole lot of nothing, no I really mean it, this beer has no taste. Well, there is a little skunky dry hop finish on the very end. I was waiting the entire sip for some flavor and it never came. There was just a small hop bitterness and an almost skunky finish on the back end.
I’m drinking this beer colder than I normally would. It has warmed a little and it is still only at 47 degrees.
It is now at 51 and I don’t think I can let it warm up any more. It is definitely picking up some unpleasantness, and that’s being kind.
If you like the American Macro lagers then you will like this beer. Just keep it ice cold in order to swallow. That may be a little harsh. This is probably better then most Adjunct Lagers but it's been a long time since I had a Bud.
