(no freshness info - poured into a fluted pilsner glass)

A: light, golden honey in color, filtered clear... sudsy, off-white foam forms, slowly fades out to almost nothing, no lace

S: smells a lot like their classic lager - unbuttered popcorn and a wort of mostly pale grist

T: also tastes a good bit like the trad. lager as well, only with a notch or two less malt depth - it's noticeably drier, less perception of sweetness (which in the trad. lager likely comes from the alcohol), but not by much... has that vague yellow grapefruit overtone and sort of lingering, beach grass and citrus pith bitterness... still, all about the bready malt here

M: rounder, fuller body than the lot of macro lights, however, just about as bone dry... more akin to a Helles than an adjunct lager

O: in a blind tasting, one might mistake this for their flagship lager - a few sips in, a dedicated fan may begin to notice something off... a (not-so) surprisingly great light beer

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
