look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a dark amber color (just as advertised!) with an off-white head with some decent retention.

S: Smells pretty bland. A bit of sweet caramel malt and some feint hops.

T: Taste is a step up. Sweet, bready, slightly caramel-y malt with a dash of grassy hops and a little bit of alcohol. Finishes dry with the slightest residual sweetness.

M: Medium-light body with alot of carbonation.

O: Yeungling is a good beer especially for the price, end of story.

A- Pours a crystal clear copper - 1 finger of head but very quickly dissipating. Bubbles galore.

S- Just a little bit of grain/malt adjunct, mostly blah.

T- a more pronounced grainy/malty flavor, better than the smell.

M- Medium body, heavy carbonation.

O- Yuengling is a good gateway drug into craft beer. It has a very tame lightly malt/sweet flavor which is good but not great. And of course you can't go wrong for the price.
