Poured from a bottle to a mug.

Appearance: poured a clear copper color. It had a white head that didn't last with mild carbonation.

Smell: Has a clean smell that is not very powerful. Hard to pick up much but I do get citrus and grassy tones.

Taste: Has a clean taste that is kind of watery. It does not have a lot of depth and it thin. I get a slight citrus and caramel flavors.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery with a refreshing crispness. Has a mild carbonation and sits well. Finishes with the slight tinge from the carbonation.

Overall: I enjoyed this beer. It was nothing special but it had a decent flavor and is very drinkable. It is easy to drink and refreshing.

Yuengling, a classic. Pours amber with gold tinge, decent head. A little bit of lacing but not much. Smells just watery, alcoholic and sweet. Not much taste either, typical adjunct grain flavor, but with a little more quality. Smooth but watery feel. This is decent, better than most mass produced lagers

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper/amber hue, with a quick 1.5 finger head that quickly dissipates. Very minimal lacing left on the glass as I drink, but the color is very nice.

Smell: Light adjunct smell, mainly corn, very light hop prescence. Mild metallic smell.

Taste: Very slight metallic taste, followed by a mild malty character and very light floral hops. Kind of watery but it works well with the taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and moderately high carbonation make this a definitely easy drinker, very refreshing.

Overall: Amazing for the cheap price, my beer of choice if I want to get drunk on something a bit lighter but tasty.

Can't get this in New England, so I stock up everytime I go to Pennsylvania or New York.
"America's oldest brewery" has the formula for what I think is my favorite mainstream American Lager.

The dark amber color pours nice outta the green bottle.

When it first poors the high carbonation is apparent. The head is not thick though and fades pretty quick. Carbonation stays though.

Not really any malt smell to it, although some say its there. More of a grainy smell and taste to me. (which lingers nice in the after taste) nothing fancy, but just a classic "American Lager".

Many say this is there favorite macro brewed beer and I dont blame them. Yeungling has made a good name for itself.

Bought 24 oz can from local shop for $1.50. Trying it out of a pilsner glass as opposed to a regular pint glass. Pours redish gold, shiny, bit watery looking. Very sweet bready smell with hints of malt and grain. Surprisingly crisp feel noticed off the bat. Citrusy notes, sweet maltiness and hops to round it out. Very well balanced. Not complex. I like this beer, it is brewed with more integrity than beers like bud, while still being really cheap. Glad to have it available here in jersey.
