This beer is total swill. I don't know what the hell yuengling is thinking with this beer.

All I have to say is this, my grandfather loves this beer, but his #1 beer s GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY, so, judge his taste accordingly.

The most horrible aspect of this beer is the aftertaste, it makes me crave a natty ice.

12 oz bottle.

It pours a pale gold with a short lived fizzy head that doesn't leave any lacing. Usually the one thing macros get right is the appearance, not this one.

The smell is pretty bad even for macro standards, old sock, corn vomit, cardboard, and rotten fruit round out the smells.

The flavor is also incredibly weak. It is sour with a nasty corn note, some water, and a slight bit of hops.

Watery mouthfeel, bad aftertaste.

This beer sucks.

A: Clear, golden color with little head and bad retention.
S: Hoppy smell and a little caramelly

T: Not at all impressive. Too much of a metallic, salty taste.

M: Light feel, a bit overcarbonated

D: Not an easy drinker, I certainly would not buy it and would probably would only drink it if I was desperate.

Pretty awful.

Very, very, strong metallic can-of-corn tastes through and through this thing. Hops do have some intriguing bitterness here, unlike most cheap beers, but not enough to cover the corn. I bought a case of this because it was 10 bucks, and I needed pop off bottles to fill with my homebrew (for a few bucks more, I might as well get them with some beer in them, right?).

I usually really enjoy Yuengling products, but next time, I'm just buying empty bottles at my LHBS.
