3.15/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed copper in color, with a nice, two-inch bone-white head of foam.
Aroma-Flowery, sweet malt
Taste-Watered-down sweet malt,faintly metallic finish. Taste did not match the looks or smell of this beer. Many better bock beers out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The color is a sort of mahogany, ruby red hues in a medium brown, clean and clear and barely dark enough to be very slightly opaque. The off-white head is about half a finger tall and spritzy but retention isn't bad. Lacing is spotty and consistent.
It's balanced like a Bock, pretty even between hops and malts. The primary balance is between caramel and toffee from the hops with a bit of raw fruits and floral with mildly leafy hops bitterness. It's light overall, keeping with Yuengling's status as gateway craft.
The feel is light as well, not quite the appropriate medium body or so of the style. Carbonation is moderate, lending itself to a continuous crispness and contributing to a good smoothness.
This isn't a bad Bock by any means.

An interesting concept to bring an age-old beer back onto the taps of Pennsylvania.

When poured it looks like a very dark, reddish amber beer. You definitely know that its a Yuengling by the tint of the beer and the smell. It has a very sweet smell, roasted nut, with a little bit of dark fruit in there. There seems to be a hint of molasses.

Taste wise, it feels and tastes like a Yuengling. It has that dry, light feel with a not so sweet "bock" taste that I am accustomed to in European bocks. It tastes much more like their Black & Tan. It lacked the real roastiness of the finer bocks, and lacked some spicing. I'd say with time this one will sort itself out.

3.43/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark amber with a quarter of an inch of soft, off white head that fizzles away after a few seconds. The nose offers some faint caramel, some yeast, and some mild adjuncts. The flavor is caramelly up front with some very faint apple notes and finishes with some faint, bitter hops. The mouthfeel is a little too crisp for me, but has a medium body and is smooth.

This has good balance and is drinkable and enjoyable, but ultimately it doesn't have as much flavor or complexity as some other bocks out there.

4.33/5  rDev +28.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Taste: malt, caramel, oats...all light yet balanced
Mouth: thirst quenching, good carbs, not too thick.

The beer will produce good head, and following Yuengling characteristics, they make a beer that will cater to a very wide variety of drinkers form the Mass produced to the connoieseur. Budweiser fan would enjoy this beer as well as a discriminating home brewer.

Very drinkable and a nice product from Yuengling.

For BOTTLE: reviewer DonMonkey1 was spot on in his review.

Serving type: on-tap
