12 oz green custom bottle. there is some type of bottle code, but can't tell the date.

appears a clear dark copper color with minimal head. smells of sweet corn, a bit vegetal. taste is clean, one note, slightly herbal, sweet grain. not really any hops. thin body, fizzy higher carbonation.

overall -my go to picnic beer or everyday value beer

Had to give this a try as it was the first day Ohio was allowed to sell this. I normally wouldnt come near anything that is said to be comparable to the other macro brews.

Pours clean and clear burnt copper with a sudsy three fingered head.

Smells slightly sweet, pronounced grain malt, with the slightest hint of some citrusy notes.

Typical of a macro lager, there are pronounced grain with a lingering aftertaste. Little to no hop character. Slightly sweet with hints of caramel.

Crisp, clean, high carbonation but thin.

I am a self admitted beer snob. I have not had a macro beer in almost 4 years. This does not make me want to go back although its not necessarily horrible. If you were going to have some beer laying around for friends and social gatherings, this is a choice for you.

A: Clear Amber with minimal head.

S: Light Hop/Malt aroma. Not overpowering.

T: Very crisp ,again light hops and malts.

M: Light and a good amount of carbonation that brings out the flavors.

O: Yuenging is new to Ohio and I first had it on-tap. Tonight was a 6pack bottle. Overall it's a very crisp clean and drinkable beer with more flavor than other mass produced beers. It's not super hoppy or malty like other lagers, just right IMO.
