Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, caramel coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and not much head at all. A bit on the pale side to look at. Aromas of caramel sweet, toasted grains, and not much else. Slightly watery nose. Flavors are buttery and caramel forward, but again, watered down, with a very subtle toastiness in the backbone. Light bodied, with a slight crisp in the finish from the carbonation. The aftertaste is toasted and slightly sweet. This is certainly an easy drinker, but lacks a bit in every other department.

This is a tough one to review, its all in comparisons...

Compared to Yuengling Lager, eh... I'll take the real deal Lager over this any day.

That being said, when you go to a party, event, or anything where you need bring a case of beer and people are expecting/bringing Coors Lite, Miller Lite or some other garbage, well heck... Yuengling Light Lager can meet all of their delicate sensibilities and "diets" without being a bucket of downright trash. So in that light, this stuff is great!

I guess what I am saying, is in Light Beer land, Yuengling Light is GOD!
