A: Typical light lager. Golden with a touch of amber.
S: Lightly hopped but not much more.
T: Very nice here. Tastes like beer dammit. Smooth finish. Cluster bittering hops perhaps? Nice. Maybe some cascade hops to finish.
M: Light to medium. For a light beer...it's OK. Better than other US light macros..no doubt.
D: Shot. I could throw back these all night. Very nice to down. Refreshing and satisfying.
Overall: I love this light beer. Best in the US for a light beer. An honest light beer. A touch weak in alcohol but a nice example of an American Light Lager. I like it.

Yuengling Light Lager 3.4% alcohol tall boy 24oz. can poured into a German Pokel.
A- Pours a light amber colored fluid with nice quarter inch white head that leaves decent lacing up and down.
S- Scents of metallic corn, husky malts, and a dose of sweetness.
T-M- Taste is mostly a lightly sweet malt with watered down corn and a touch of thin hops. Mouthfeel is smooth as water but nothing but a carbonated drink for a hot day not horrible but not the best drinkablity.
Just ok with a no frills design.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has no other info.
Appearance: The body is a very clear golden yellow color with a tall white head on top from an aggressive pour. This head is loosely packed and fades out quickly leaving nothing behind.
Smell: Its aroma is a basic mix of light cereal grain, hay and touch of hops. The hops have a grassy and slightly citrusy character.
Taste/Palate: Following up on the aroma I get a light mix of dry cereal grain with a thin grassy and citrusy hop acidity and bitterness. This comes on a light palate with moderate fizzy carbonation.
Notes: Overall it's an average light beer with no real flaws for its style. Its light on everything and easy to drink.

I am disappointed with this beer because I love the regular lager that they make. This was far worse than the regular lager. I like the look and color a lot. There was no head but it was a beautiful colored beer. Other than the look, the beer stunk. The task is very bitter. I rather drink a Milwaukee's Best Ice to be honest. The feeling was even worse than the taste. The beer finished leaving your mouth very dry and bitter feeling. I had bout a case of this thinking it would be great like the regular lager but with less calories. I was very wrong and it was a total waste of money.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, medium gold body with a one finger offwhite head that quickly dwindles to a thin wisp of collar. Aroma is nearly void, so I can't rate it as awful. Some faint grainess is barely noticed. Mouthfeel is very light bodied, with lots of crisp carbonation. Taste is watery and fizzy. Slight notes of caramel malt are easily balanced by subdued hops bitterness. Clean finish and aftertaste make this a decent "lawnmower" beer, but I don't see any point in trying this one again.

3.76/5 rDev +33.8%
Appearance: copper in color, 1 inch head, clear, high carbonation
Smell: toasted malt and sugar
Taste: toasted malt, light caramel, and sugar
Mouthfeel: light bodied, medium-high carbonation, sweet
Overall: For the style, this is surprisingly awesome and would be one that I would turn to if I wanted a light beer. Plenty of flavor, unlike a lot of the beers in this style which seem to be either sugared up and/or watered down. I think I like this better than regular Yuengling. A lot better than I remember it being.

Had one of these tonight because thats whats in ma fridgerator haha. Fairly lackluster appearance , pale, small head. Not much in the nose- some faint grain and also faint sweetness. Flavor is better than most light bmc's but thats not saying much. There is a bite of raw grain in the back , bit of corny sweetness balanced by a touch of bitterness in the finish. Well, it goes down with more ease than bud light or mich ultra, but im just not much of a "light beer" guy. Basicially a watered down version of the original Yuengling Lager.

12oz can poured into a pint glass.
Pours a clear amber color, very light but kinda nice. No head at all. Nose is bad, think of PBR or something like that.
Taste is like a BMC light lager. Not much here, light hoppines bur really light. Carbonation is a bit high like most BMC lagers. Skip this go for the light beer.
