I would classify this beer as a great family gathering beer. Though it sports a sparse diminishing head, the medium amber color is very appealing. Yuengling's light body and smooth mouthfeel make this a very drinkable beer for light beer enthusiasts while the unique lightly toasted grain flavor could satisfy many in the craft beer crowd. The fact that this beer is not yet distributed in Michigan only adds to it's allure.

My older brother and father love this beer, every time we get together my brother brings my dad a six pack. I finally had to try it for myself and I must say I do enjoy it. Nothing really spectacular stands out but overall its just a pretty decent beer. It's relatively inexpensive and for the price I think its a good enough light beer to purchase.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a sudsy off white 1" head that rapidly recedes. Very faint amount of lacing. Color is a deep amber. Nice amount of carbonation bubbles streaming up the glass.

Aroma: corn, some toasted malt, and a slight earthy hop.

Mouthfeel: watery, slight stickiness coats the mouth, finish is semi-wet.

Flavor: corn and caramel malt sweetness with a mild hop bitterness for some balance.

Overall: A great ’go between’ beer to serve from a keg at get-togethers. It is mainstream enough for the light beer crowd, but substantial enough to satisfy all but the most extreme beer snobs.

Pours a nice looking copper color with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving a small amount of lacing.

Quite a bit of malt in the smell, also yeast and a bit of bread.

Starts out malty and bread like, maybe more of a biscuit flavor than bread. Has a hint of pine and floral from the hops at the finish.

Decent feel, nothing really stands out as bad or good.

I was given a few bottles of this, but research says this in an inexpensive beer. Assuming that to be true, for the price, this is a decent beer. Nothing that is going to outdo the really nice craft beers, but an easy drinking, and fairly flavorful beer. It just tries to be a decent easy to drink beer at a good price, and it succeeds in meeting that goal.
