A. Slightly cloudy golden, off-white head
S. Slightly "bread-like" yeasty smell
T. More of a Pilsner lager flavor than an ale
M. Well rounded, pleasant if "glassy" aftertaste
O. Suggest you do a blind taste test of this vs. a (cheap) European Pilsner - you may be surprised at the results. Forget the reputation, this is a good beer for an American large producer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass

A: Clear, Deep Golden, Small off-white head.
S: Smell of their traditional lager with a bit more hops.
T: The hops aren't as much of a piney, citrus flavor as they have more of a spicy flavor. Probably of the noble variety. The hops are very light. Toasted malt also peeks through.
M: Light, slightly creamy. Crisp finish and high drinkability.
O: A decent offering by Yuengling, and a decent bang for your buck at $7 a sixer. If you want to buy a cheap beer for a night out with some friends, this would be good for that. If you want to give yourself a treat, save a couple more bucks and get a six-pack of something a bit better.

Can't beat this beer for the price, and I think it's the best beer yuengling makes. Golden in color, Decent amount of hoppiness to it for the abv's. Keeps it's head for a good amount of time. Leaves some lacing around the glass as well. Poured in my dogfish head glass to reveal all its hop character, and to maintain a head all the way through while drinking. Very drinkable. Like I said, for the price you can't beat it's flavor and character. Nothing wrong with this beer.
