12oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness dating, but since i bought it a mile from the brewery....

heavily carbonated, very pale yellow body, small white head, light lacing.

corny aroma, faintly yeasty, mostly a rather unpleasant chemical smell.

to be honest, there isnt much of a flavor at all. tastes watery.

thin on he mouth, a faint bite under the tongue.

overall, it is what it is. i only bought a single because after 25 years living in pottsville, this was the only one of their beers i;d never tried. (damn you ocd!) i get drinking light beers for calories, but to be honest, any flavored water would be preferable than slamming these all night.

A really drinkable mass produced light beer. Cheap and good with wings or burgers.

A very good light beer. I think the brown bottle does a lot to help it with its taste. Yuengling uses green bottles for other beer they make and I suggest to them - STOP!! This light has all the flavor of a regular lager, but less calories!! I tried a blind taste to see if I could tell it from several other regular beers. I am not an expert, but I had a hard time telling it apart. Very good flavor and a very good taste!!

10/2016 - real bad news - they use GMO corn in their brew. Sorry, I cant go for that, regardless of the reason(s) they give. Corporations say GMO is "not bad". Sure, I believe them, remember how cigarette companies said cigarettes werent bad for us???

Yuengling Premium Light Beer brewed by Yuengling Brewery, with an ABV of 3.50% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is nice with grains and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in this brew. Now for the taste, it is light, but bold with flavor. There is a lot going on in this light brew. The mouthfeel is nice, clean, and refreshing. There is nothing overpowering in Yuengling Premium Light Beer. This brew has a nice balance to it. Overall I'm going Yuengling Premium Light Beer a 4.25 out 5 I would buy this brew again.
