Don't know the other ones but I have always liked Rolling Rock....good beer for the hot summer days.

Give Yuengling shot, especially if you are in northeast Pennsylvania and can get it fresh.
 
Never seen any 'Genny' cream ale but then never looked for any either.
I have had Yuengling...both the lager and the porter....good beer and the beer of choice of 'Repairman Jack', the hero of the novels by F Paul Wilson.
