a- straw, clear...lacking

s- somewhat hoppy, with almost a sweet fruity finish

t- bitter, in a bad way. not too much fruit, even though the taste hints at it. not put together well at all. dissappointment.

m- thin, watery, too carbonated. there wasn't much good about it

d- tough to enjoy, but goes down decently easy. not tough to drink a lot of it, just wish the overall taste was better.

Serving type: bottle

If you can get over the cork sniffery and the weird mustard color, this is an ok beer.
kinda carby and a bit of corn in the flavor... but it has a grain body to it and there are certainly a bit of decent hops in there. I'm giving this an OK reveiw.... It isn't going to catch the beer world on fire...
It OK and I"m about to enjoy a second one... and yes I have some Omegang and bells withing reach...

This beer was not too bad. I could taste the bitterness in it, I also could taste the malts that it had in it as well. I do have to say that I liked the sweetness that this beer has. It was not my favorite beer, but like I said ir was not all that bad.

I think this one's unfairly rated against more robust pale ales. Thin soapy looking head should just stay in the can or bottle. Don't smell it for the little grassiness you might pick up. Drink it and taste the mild bitterness and sweet malts. Remember that ale is a very This is Yuengling's version of a pale ale. It's a little too sweet, but probably once a year I'll get a case of cans because it's a solid bargain here in Central PA. I believe bottles have probably sat too long. Thank you Yuengling for Black and Tan and Lager pint cans and 12 oz cans in everything else too. Yuengling does what nobody else does, and that's provide more flavorful session beers than the bigger macros while hitting the right price point. You can get better safe beer like a Sam Adams Boston Lager or Sierra Nevada for another $12 per case, or you can proudly buy cases of Lager, B/T, and Chesterfield to eat with pizza at home.
