Yuengling Summer Wheat has a thick, off-white head, an initially clear, very bubbly, orange-gold appearance, some residual lacing, and a descending, gray-brown cloud, when the bottom contents are swished and poured in. The aroma is strong, with sweet, spicy, yeasty holiday bread, banana, and cloves. There is even a bubblegum pickup. Taste is not as full, but one can detect sweet, spicy wheat bread, higher-than-average bitterness, tap water, and a shade of banana. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Yuengling Summer Wheat finishes crisp and easy drinking.

This beer is great in the summer (as advertised). It has a fruity taste and is easy to drink. It is not an outstanding beer, but I would recommend having a couple over a barbecue. This is a good beer for people who typically do not enjoy heavy or strong flavored beers. Good for a soft pallet.

a 12oz bottle at a friends house, poured into a glass.

Looks pretty decent, only very slight haziness, considering I dumped the entire bottle, yellow body with some orange tones, small white head which maintained quite well, good carbonation and lacing.

Aroma was actually quite strong and pleasant, wheat, bubblegum, strong yeast aroma

Taste was okay just that it petered out very quickly, no lasting or lingering on the tongue. From the aroma, I was hoping for something more flavorful.

Mouth was pretty thin.

Overall, not a bad or unpleasant beer at all. Would likely do the trick very nicely after a day working in the garden. It's just that it becomes bland rather quickly.
