I've been a long-time drinker of Yuengling but never thought to give it a review until now, so here it goes.

I have always drank from the bottle and this was the first time drinking from a glass and was I surprised! Poured into a nonic pint glass and I must say, the color was surprisingly rich and dark. Light caramel, amber-brown color. Head was not very full and simmered down after about a minute or two.

The smell of Yuengling was something I was never a fan of, very strong copper, metallic smell with traces of sourness.

Taste is initally very watery but has a starchy, corn finish that isn't too bad.

Beer feel isn't very full, very watery. Definitely a favorite out of all macrobrews for its drinkability and relatively good taste.
