MMm. A sentimental favorite - I first encountered this one on a Pennsylvania road trip about fifteen years ago, before Craft Brewing has reached the happy condition of these modern times, when it was a bit more difficult to find brews that showed off a local character.

Back in the day, I thought more highly of Yuengling than I do today - it still hasn't lost its starting position if I find myself somewhere on the Eastern Seaboard.

As with some others in this category, I find that Yuengling can finish a bit too far on the sweet end of the scale, and doesn't really have enough character to sustain interest beyond a nostalgic "Yep, I'm in Orlando, gimme a Yuengling" first beer.

But it is certainly refreshing.

Appearance- golden hue as expected from an ale . Nothing excited but nice
Taste- slight bitterness not much in the way of hops . Granted this is my 5th beer.
Smell- nothing notable. Typical ale smell
Mouthfeel- smooth on the palate. Nothing overbearing at all
Drinkability- easy and a good warm weather beer.

Nice copper color with an off-white thick head with decent retention and leaving good laces.
Predominant aroma of caramels and biscuit malt.
Likewise flavor of caramels, floral and herbal hops, light spice bite and definitely corn syrup. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Watery body with good carbonation
Ok beer, it does bring more flavor to the table than most macro brews. Still this is very simple and sweet.
