World Beer Cup Gold Award Winner. Amber Lager/Ale or Cream Ale Category 2002. Since its introduction, Genesee Cream Ale has won ten major medals at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup - and we have no intention of resting on our laurels. Exceptionally smooth, our Cream Ale is fermented at high temperatures, aged longer and brewed with choice top-fermenting yeast. The result is a true original American Classic with the flavor of a fine ale and the smoothness of a premium lager.
