Poured from the twist off 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass.
Appearance- Beer pours clear and yellow golden with a fairly large two finger head that lingers for about a minute before dying down to a murk across the top with substantial lacing around the sides of the glass. Looks good for a pale so far.
Smell- Hmm, smells pretty nice as well, light base malts with a fairly fruity hop character, not IPA style citrus, but still a bit of citrus and pear another thing I can't quite pick up. Sweet, maybe a variety of honey? It does have a bit of a honey sweetness in there.
Taste- Oh, now here we fall a little short, there's a bit of drying hop bitterness, and those good pale malts come through, but the sharpness of being in green bottles also comes through. It isn't skunked, it's been kept in the most perfect of conditions, but that flavor just isn't quite up to snuff overall. It seems lacking in both malt and hop flavor.
Mouthfeel- A bit bitter, smooth, light bodied, highly carbonated, spritzy.
Drinkability- This is a smooth drinker, a lawnmower beer for sure, and this is something I would prefer to find in the can. This is something I'll seek out again when I go to Pennsylvania, but I will be looking for the porter first and foremost.

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.
