When I see lager, I think full of body & flavour. Although the look and foam resembles a lager, the taste is more of a beer diluted with seltzer water. There's some arguable 'crispness' I suppose, but always disappointed when I give it another try every few years. Yuengling may be steeped in tradition and look okay from across the room, but would sooner opt for an island ale or budget Mexican brew because the label better describes the content.

12 oz can. Pours a clear caramel with a thin head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma has hints of sweet grain, and faint glances of traditional hops. Taste is balanced and mild. Grains, traditional spicy/earthy hops, and a short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation.

Grabbed some cans for pizza + chili. Pours a clear amber with big rocky off-white head, splotchy lacing. Smell: sweet grain and mildly spiced bread, clean mild hop presence. Taste: generic caramel-ish, bready-ish sweetness with notes of stone fruit and earthy hopping. Light bodied. Slimy/sticky finish, otherwise inoffensive. Better in the pounders than green bottles.

Nice beer. Good taste and aroma. No frills just a good glass of Lager. Oh it gets even better as it come up in temperature.

My Pennsylvania bias may be showing through but one of my all time favorite lagers. Easy to drink, great bottle. Don't let the cost convince you this beer tastes cheap!

Look: Attractive amber/gold with a thin white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Hops and malts. A very basic beer smell.

Taste: A light, citrus-infused malt flavor. Very mild.

Mouthfeel: Thin and highly carbonated, like soda.

Overall: Out of all the macro lagers you can find everywhere in America, Yuengling is the closest to a good beer.
