Enjoyed on tap at a Predators game in Nashville at Bridgestone Areana.

Beer pours a nice copper amber color with just a bit of white head.

No real smells to speak of except for a bit of corn and malt.

Beer tastes carmelly sweet initially before have a nice dry, corn finish. Finishes well.

Fair amount of carbonation and very easy drinking.

Solid session beer. Old reliable.

Poured unto a pint.

Appearance: A darker golder with a appetizing head which measures a solid 3/4". Super light white-orange not too bubbly.

Smell: Real weak hop smell, not those most appealing to this beer.

Taste: Seriously for a lager this is pretty good. Dry hops, slight bitterness.

Mouth: Super-smooth and easy to like.

Overall: Pretty good beer and easy "ever-day" beer. I like this beer especially towards a warm summer day when you're on the grill cooking and need one while flipping steaks. Drink with pride, Salud!

Ah, my old faithful. 12oz green bottle that pours a clear amber color. Very small white head fades away fast.
Aroma is faint lightly toasted malt. Not much to really note here.

Taste is a little bit sweet toasted caramel malt. Biscuity and dry. A faint citrus hop on the back end through the finish. Clean and crisp. Full of flavor for a basic lager.

Dry finish. Medium bodied. Smooth and easy to drink. Good carbonation.

I'm a bit biased for this beer as it was probably the first beer I ever actually liked. It's a good go to simple beer. Gets the job done. Sometimes I just get a craving for this beer and it's a reliable choice when the draft selection isn't that great as you find pretty much find this beer anywhere. I'll always have a special place for The old Traditional.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper/ amber color with a quickly dissipating head and not really any lacing.

Smells quite malty, a bit toasty even, a bit of an adjunct aroma as well.

A dash of caramel and a whole lot of corn sweetness. Minimal hop touch towards the end with a adjunct/ grain taste in the finish.

Feels very thin and watery, not exactly a bad thing, absurdly drinkable.

Well, it's Yuengling, so its obviously nothing special. Not a bad beer by any means, very sessionable and at $18 a case its a good bang for your buck.
