Served on the warm side, between 45°F and 50°F. This beer was flown via private plane from Florida to be here with me today. Thanks, Dave!
A: YTL pours into the pint glass with a three-finger, ivory head that is surprisingly creamy, and leaves little specks of lacing on the glass. The color is a light honey-gold amber, bright and sparkling with shimmery yellow highlights.
S: Honey and grassy hops are delivered to the nose from this crisp, clean lager. Everything is subdued, but there's definitely a corn smell that seems out of place in this beer, and while not unpleasant, has a stronger presence than nearly every beer I've tried.
T: Corn again. The flavor is mellow, giving hints of toasted grain, very light bitterness, and some caramel notes.
M: Medium-thin. Smooth. Watery. The high carbonation really doesn't come through in the mouthfeel.
D: Yuengling's lager is sessionable but not necessarily enjoyable, and for better or worse, tastes just like Corn Pops. You know, the little yellow balls of sweet corn cereal. Seriously. I could close my eyes and convince myself that I'm eating breakfast.
