look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City pint glass.

Fluffy off white head that stands 1 finger tall with low retention and sticky lacing.Amber / copper colored body with very good clarity.Heavy amount of carbonation.

On the nose I get mostly caramel malts,and earthy pine hops.Really not much else to speak of.Maybe a little bit of metallic notes.

The palate follows the nose with caramel malts up front,and some pine and citrus hops on the back end balanced by sweet malts.

The mouth feel is thin and watery,but not watered down.There is a good amount of oxidation on the tongue from the carbonation.Smooth easy finish.

My father loves this one,it really isn't bad for being a mass produced beer.A good alternative if you can't afford the expensive craft beers,or they aren't available.Not bad but nit earth shattering either...Solid Lager.

For macro lager it doesn't get any better , there are actually some decent grain and hop flavors for what it is ..

If a place doesn't have craft brew or I'm just being cheap yuengling is one of my go to macros.

On tap:
Pours a nice amber, clear, with a sheet-lace producing thin white head.

Nose is light grain, mildly sweet, with an equal amount of spicy bitterness.

Taste is similar to nose, fairly smooth, medium light. An amber beer maltiness without tons of flavor, lightly spicy bitterness is refreshing for a staple beer.

From the can, it pours amber with a modest head. The head lasts a bit and leaves lacing. Some hops and bread in the nose. The breadiness comes through in the mouth. Nice American lager!
