Is this great beer? NOPE. That is not the important question. The real question is how does this compare to other inexpensive light beers. To that question I would say it is a superior product. Because it is yuengling it has a better color than the flavor would suggest. Has a pleasant and present flavor (not a given in this style). Smooth if not interesting. Very good beer if you want something really light and pretty cheap. Maybe too much for lawn mower beer but perfect for a summer cookout with the boys that goes all day and night.

Solid light beer, as far as low calorie/taste goes, this is one of my favorites.

Pours a light copper color with a wispy off-white head that very quickly settles into some sorry bubbles.

The aroma is basically non-existent. Some sulfur and grain.

The taste is very light but does have some grain notes. No noticeable veggie flavor which is nice.

The feel is light and watery. Very crisp on the palate. Some sweetness. Kind of resembles flavored seltzer.

Ok for a light macro lager. Much better than the BMC versions.

Not as good as the regular lager. It is a little more bland. However still very smooth.

It's a tasty beer ( I'm trying to cut calories ) wish the ABV was a little higher. Overall a pleasant light lager

Grabbed a couple of these walking around and enjoyed the taste and smell. Mouth feel was good. I could session a lot of these. Not going to get drunk on this. Much better than St. Louis Swill or Rocky Mountain Low.

Rating this against other light beers, this is quite good. Don't overthink it, just crack open the twist top and enjoy from the bottle. I actually like this better than regular Yuengling because it gets rid of this odd acidic taste I get from the standard Lager.

Overall Yuengling Light is probably the best light beer you'll find and has somewhat more flavor than the Bud/Miller/Coors lights yet it retains the same price point. I'm not a light beer drinker but if I had to pick one I would choose this.
