Genesee Cream Ale: An American Original
First brewed at the Genesee Brewery in 1960, Cream Ale is one of only three beer styles that originated in the United States. Crisp, full flavored and slightly sweet, this Original combines the best parts of an ale and lager into one smooth brew. Unique to the style, Cream Ale is brewed with ale yeast at lager temperatures. This creates the crisp, smooth quality the beer is known for. Since its conception, the Original Cream Ale has racked up numerous awards including 10 Great American Beer Festival medals, three World Beer Cup medals and a silver at the International Beer Festival.
Always enjoy responsibly.
