3.76/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 40°F

Appearance: Hazy orange golden color. An aggressive pour resulted in a frothy two finger off white head. As with all Yuengling beers I've had, the appearance is appealing.

Smell: Banana bread, spices (cloves), citrus. On the sweet side

Taste: Cloves is prominent with banana and citrus undertones. I also pick up bubble gum towards the end and throughout the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light with slight bitterness. Very drinkable. Could be creamier

Overall: Not my style, but as with other Yuengling beers, this is WAY better than Shock Top or other similarly priced wheat beers. Definitely recommended, because you shouldn't have to pay $10 or more for a six pack of a good American wheat beer. You cannot beat it for the price. Probably my favorite Yuengling beer along with the Traditional. I will be enjoying my fair share of this this summer. Cheers!

a 12oz bottle at a friends house, poured into a glass.

Looks pretty decent, only very slight haziness, considering I dumped the entire bottle, yellow body with some orange tones, small white head which maintained quite well, good carbonation and lacing.

Aroma was actually quite strong and pleasant, wheat, bubblegum, strong yeast aroma

Taste was okay just that it petered out very quickly, no lasting or lingering on the tongue. From the aroma, I was hoping for something more flavorful.

Mouth was pretty thin.

Overall, not a bad or unpleasant beer at all. Would likely do the trick very nicely after a day working in the garden. It's just that it becomes bland rather quickly.

Very nasty heartburn as a result of imbibing. Will never buy it again. Short and sweet, I do not like it. OK Maybe I don't like Summer wheat. Just adding words due.to minimal requirement of words in review. Much prefer their Lager I have one left in my frig anyone wants it.
