One of my favorite macros. Head that dissipates rapidly and pours a slightly darker than usual color. Aroma is a little metallic but very subtle. The best quality in this beer is it's taste is more complex than your average macro. The downside to this often overlooked brew, is that it is only served in an odd number of states. (ohio is not one of them so we sometimes have to cruise over the border to Sharon PA to get our hands on some of it.)

Serving type: can

This is my new go to beer. Since I live in southern NJ, I am in Yuengling Brewery's back yard. I used to drink Yuengling Lager, but after 3 or 4 it leaves me with a really bitter aftertaste. I had never thought to try this until a few weeks ago, I had a taste for a domestic beer. I bought a 6-pack, and I love it. Mind you, this is for casual drinking. this isn't going to blow you away like a microbrew or an IPA. This is just a good quality domestic session beer.

Appearance- 3.25, yellow, slight amber, light head
Smell- clean, sweet beer smell, no hops
taste- crisp, a tad sweet, no hops, light corn
mouthfeel- heavy carbonation, sweet finish, no after taste
overall- again, at 5.00 a 6 pack you can't go wrong. In my opinion, puts Miller, Bud, and Coors all to shame and saves you money in the process.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours translucent straw with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet cereal grain, a tad bit of corn, very sweet. Tastes of cereal grain, but much more flavorful than most adjuncts. Beer is light bodied, easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

3.61/5  rDev +25.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: very pale, dandelion-gold liquid - crystal clear... fizzy, open foam that settles quickly into a thin cap, then slowly dissipates, breaking up

S: bubblegum, at first - that just about fades away, leaving a sweetish, corn bread aroma

T: initial hit of light-toasted lager malt, corn meal... the bubblegum soon emerges, as a highlight around the edges... low bitterness, more of a presence of light, syrupy sweetness... notable degree of tangerine-like citrus essence in the aftertaste...

M: light-medium-bodied, compact roundness... light, foamy wash... disappears moderately dry... drinks much like an import Helles

O: not bad... the fruity-ish, bubblegum/citrus peel elements could be toned down a touch, but they're not all that off-putting... actually, the level of dryness balances that out nicely... would prefer to have more of a grainy, bready taste here, but this has enough flavor not to be completely insipid
