Don't understand the hype around this beer. Yuengling blows Shiner out of the water as far as overhyped beers go.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a short head that is gone fast. Heavy carbonation.

Aroma: Smells of sweet malts and caramel.

Taste: Caramel, toast, bread, and grain with some malt character.

Mouthfeel: Pretty light of body.

Overall: Nice, simple, approachable beer. It hasn't got much in the way of hop bitterness or explosive flavor, but it's crisp and enjoyable. I paired it with latkes and matzah ball soup on the first night of Hanukkah. Nothing wrong with it at all.

Solid beer on the less expensive side of things. The Yuengling for people in Pennsylvania who are too cool to drink Yuengling.
