Along with Ballantine Ale, this was one of my go-to beers before I discovered craft. Better than lager.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden, copper color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic with lots of bready, toasted malt aromas, co-mingled with lots of corn and rice-like adjunct aromas, which imparts some slightly vinegary aromas.

Taste: Very similar, if not exactly like the aroma. Bready, toasted malt flavors up front, followed by lots of corn and rice-like adjunct flavors, which gives the beer a slight vinegar-like taste. There is some caramel-like sweetness as well, and a touch of floral, piney, hoppy bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to medium/thin and pretty effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation on the palate. With an ABV of 5.4%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Like all of Yuengling’ s beers, this one is an ok, inoffensive, easy to drink, but totally forgettable beer. Better than a BMC beer, but there are some may other better beers out there. In fact I’d much rather have a Yuengling Traditional Lager over this one, and I’d certainly much rather have a Yuengling Porter or Oktoberfest over this one.

Drinking this from the bottle because I've poured it in a mug and it does it NO favors. It all starts with the green bottle(I should have known this was going to be unimpressive). Its golden with a thin white head that is lackluster at best. A little lace is surprising. Smells like wet straw. This beer is so thin and has a harshly carbonated feel that just isn't appealing to the tongue. Tastes like Alka-seltzer. This beer is funky with a horrible after taste. When it warms it gets remarkably worse. Pass on this one.

Nose reminiscent of your standard American Adjunct Lager... taste not too far off.

A so/so ale...average taste....nothing special.

Straw colored. Light bodied. Crisp and clean with a dry hoppy finish.

This offering is not a true pale ale but it is definitely a couple steps above the average AAL.

This ale has been around a long time. It's the brew I used to break in my girlfriend to the taste of more hops than the standard domestics she liked when she chose beer over wine. She graduated and is now the Queen of Hoppy. (Now I'm working to get her off that and onto more complex stuff).

You don't buy Chetty Ale instead of a nice craft Pale Ale, IPA or Belgium. You buy Chetty instead of Budweiser.
