Beautiful dark color with a bright white head. The beer feels light in the mouth but full bodied in taste. I've tried this both in the bottle and on tap and it simply doesn't disappoint. It has a distant caramel smell masking the hops. This beer is smooth and has a great little to no after taste.

Appearance - Beautiful medium amber. Clear and bubbly. Short just off-white head. Quickly dissipates.

Smell - Medium roasted malts. A corny, caramel scent.

Taste - Quite light. Sweet light malt with a hint of medium roasted malt. A hint of citrusy hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light, watery.

Overall - Refreshing almost to the point of being watery. Flavor is not offensive, but certainly not very distinctive.

A- Medium to light amber colored body with some golden highlights. Big frothy tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Carbonation bubbles come up from the bottom through the transparent body.

S- Somewhat of a wet grain or soggy corn smell. Smells like wet bread.

T- The main taste is caramel malts. It is pretty light on taste, but the malt is noticeable. I can get a dash of hop flavor for balance as well.

M- Light bodied, medium-high carbonation, extremely drinkable.

O- A go to for tailgating, sporting events etc. Enough flavor and the drinkability to have a few.

If you're going to drink for the sake of getting drunk, this would be a good go-to beer. It's relatively inexpensive and easy to drink. I hate the thought of giving money to macro's and Yuengling is THE name in lager in Pennsylvania. It may be more of a craft brew now than a micro brew but it's good and sticks to its roots quite well.
