Pretty good pilsner, I enjoy it more than regular yuengling for sure..

Their lager is acidic or something and burns goung down but this is nice and mellow/smooth..

Would Grab again on occasion.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pale malt, sweet malt, and slight rice. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, pale malt, sweet malt, hint of wheat, and slight rice. Overall, simple and clean, with a good blend.

Rather impressed with this beer in that it has more flavor than their flagship lager. As advertised, it's smooth, golden in color, with just enough bite for a pilsner.

Golden Pilsner brewed by Yuengling Brewery, with an ABV of 4.70% This German Pilsner pours out a nice golden amber color with a small white head. Thin spotty lacing to this brew, it does stick to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with grains and malts. You also pick up the a nice amount of mild hop bitterness at the end. This brew has the look of most pilsners on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. So far this is a nice inviting brew, now for the taste. The taste is bold with flavors. You first pick up on the bold grains and malts at first, then a nice hop bite at the end. This is a nice well rounded brew, with great flavor. There is nothing overpowering about Golden Pilsner, it has a super nice balance to it. The body is a solid medium. This brew would go nice with lunch, dinner or any occasion. Golden Pilsner is a super easy drinking brew. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Golden Pilsner a Soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Yuengling Brewery, did a super nice job with this German Pilsner.

Pours a really nice golden color. No head at all. No lace either. Refreshing and crisp first taste followed by a slight hop aftertaste. Cleans the palate well. Very good beer IMO.

Just finished a 6er of this newer Yeungling. I am a big fan of the original. It is my go to cheap beer. And today is national beer day so why not go "upscale" :)

Overall a good session beer. But not better than the original IMO.

Good beer and very refreshing. Light, snappy taste and goes down easy. A good drinking beer and a good choice as maybe your first beer of the night or day or when sitting around in the yard, after mowing the lawn, etc. I'll keep some of these around right next to my Yuengling Lagers.

Purchased a six pack of bottles for about $6.50. Rated this 2.75 for VALUE, though 2.5 in every other way (look, smell, taste, feel). This just barely tastes like a pilsner, and could use a bit more hop flavor and aroma. I'm surprised by the 3.5 rating on BA because almost every review calls this an average beer, which is what it is. Good value-yes; Good beer-no; Average beer - yes. Finally, just now hitting the shelves where I live in the foothills of NC. This is a lawnmower beer that is coming to our stores just in time for leaf season, Halloween, and the holidays??? If it's on the shelf next June at the same price, I'll buy a six pack before I cut the grass. But unless you live in a state that borders Mexico or the Gulf of Mexico, wait for the hot days to return and drink a more seasonally appropriate beer.

Pleasantly surprised! I didn’t know if it would be a decent brew for the price, $10.99/12 pk. Took a chance on this one & it paid off!

Golden yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a towering, soapy, bright white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap with medium low retention. Pilsner malt aromas with grainy and sweet cereal notes. Medium light bodied with medium, acidic arbonation. Grainy and pilsner malt flavors followed by earthy, herbal hops and medium light bitterness. Grainy malt and light bready notes on the back end. Finished with a acidic bite followed by lingering bready notes. This is basically Yeungling amber lager without the caramel malt. Pretty straightforward and drinkable.

it poured a thin straw yellow color with a huge white head to start with. It leaves a little lacing on glass, the smell is of yeast with a hint of banana to it. The taste is a bit to the grass side but with not much of any hops coming in to it, mild sweetness. the feel is mild and easy to drink. Overall a good beer but nothing to get excited about, just a nice one to have on a hot afternoon.

When in Rome...

Pale golden color, corn grits and wheat on the nose. Light, highly carbed, thin body. Pale malt flavor, not getting the same corn grits as found on the nose... overall just a decent Pilsner, crushable, crisp, and affordable. Definitely not great, but okay.

1 PINT can
Served in a can glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color and is topped with a couple inches of eggshell head that leaves no lacing.

I get a banana aroma and not much else.

The taste has hints of banana. The are basic grain flavors and no hops of which to speak.

Thin mouthfeel and light body

It is very light in every aspect. It is right up your alley if you like tasteless BMC styles which I do from time to time.
