Ah, Yuengling. This one brings back some memories. May as well put in a little review while I'm up to it.
Poured into a pint glass, the small amount of head dissipates quickly. The color is a nice, rusty amber. It smells like some simple malt, and has a little of that metallic beer smell to it, but not quite as much as the less "fancy" macro brews do...
It tastes like an old friend. Simple, and always there for you when you need him. Extremely drinkable. The mouthfeel is watery, but with enough substance and carbonation to not let you down. A solid and simple lager.
Yep, this is definitely my favorite beer for those times when I don't feel like spending a lot of money. And I don't foresee anything changing that. Cheers!

Poured from a can into a pilsner glass at around 45°F
Appearance: Light amber color with a soapy one finger head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Caramel malts, grains, and a bit of earthiness. Maybe a hint of copper as it warms up.
Taste: Caramel and toasted malts, grassy earthiness with an ever so slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, and refreshing
Overall: As others have mentioned, this tastes like a watered down Boston Lager to me, but that's not at all a bad thing. This beats the hell out of anything around its price range and is great for what it is.

Along with Samuel Adams and New Belgium's Fat Tire, I think this Lager is the benchmark for macro lagers. Very drinkable and refreshing. Also quite fascinating as it pre-dates the civil war. In my humble "Craft Newbie" opinion, It's as close to a craft as a mass-produced lager can get.
