Yuengling Traditional Lager

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mason jar. Served quite cold...

A) Darker than I expected.... Amber with a finger of soapy head... The head settles quickly to a wispy collar. No lacing...

S) Grain, a little bread crust, and then this green grape, apple skin scent. Slightly sweet...

T) Pale malt, a little toast, light hop bite, like a touch of lemon grass. The most interesting part for me was the finish/aftertaste, which I quite enjoyed. It took me a bit to place it, but I think it was like communion wafers, or maybe those little candy flying saucer wafers I enjoyed as a child.

M) Medium bodied, and not over carbonated. Went down so easy. Clean and refreshing.

O) I enjoyed this. I would put this particular lager right there with the likes of PBR or Schlitz Gusto.
