This smelled and tasted like a skunks ass. Not sure if that is normal or not, either way I don't care because I would never have another. I can't think of any reason why anyone would choose this beer with so many better options out there.

I am basing this beer off other macro lighter lagers out there. Had this on tap and it was very drinkable, didnt have that skunk/piss flavor that most of these lagers carry. Being from CA I dont have access to this so Im glad I got to try it

I'll never stop liking Yuengling as a good, inexpensive beer. It was my go-to in college before I started discovering craft beer, and it remains a beer I'll drink when it's available.

A: crystal clear; copper colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to a very thin collar; no lacing;

S: toffee, brown sugar;

T: all malt - toffee, brown sugar, toast; a bit of malt sweetness; virtually no bitterness until the very end and then it's pretty light;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; smooth;

O: a nice example of the style;
