Bought it for the wife and decided to have one of the six,pours a clear straw color with a decent head,the aroma is very iron-like with some grainy notes.The taste is crisp and very clean with a light malty biscuit flavor to it,very clean beer.Hey this is one of the better "light" bers out there not real good but would have at a family gathering over AB products any time.

Discovered amongst the cans of Yuengling at the in-laws' house this weekend. What the hell.....it's something different.

Poured a crystal clear bright yellow with a fairly fizzy white head that lasted for an adequate time on the surface. No lacing. Very tough to pick out any aroma (note the strange looks from the wife's relatives while I smell my beer...). What small amount of aroma I could get was mostly a raw, grainy smell. Taste was better than expected. Very clean and crisp. Flavor is on the subdued side, with only a slightly hoppy bitterness kicking in at the end. Mouthfeel is tolerable for a light beer. Drinkability is average, too. Not a bad offering from Yuengling.

12oz can poured into a pint glass.

Pours a very light yellow and it's very clear with a fluffy one finger white head.

Taste is Very plain and bland. It's not bad and a bit sweet but it's really plain and Nondescript. It has light and smooth mouthfeel and it's pretty damn easy to drink esp with such a low abv

Compared to most light lagers this one drinks like a dream, a really great tasting light drinking beer. It's a lawnmower beer that you don't have to think about it's for hydrating and satisfying the beer craving. Appears a pale golden color with a light fizzy white head forms ample scattered lacing. Aroma has a light cereal note semi sweet with a touch of grassy hops in the background. Clean tasting flavor from front to back with a wimsy light malt biscuit background and a touch of grassy hops, I drank a good bit of this at my father in law's 50th birthday last year. It was hot outside and it just kept going down so smooth. Mouthfeel is light bodied carbonation a little too much pretty unnatural, crisp overall mouthfeel no metallic harshness. Drinkability is up there with the most drinkable brews in number, not that this one will fill your tastebuds with satisfaction as a starter beer these would make great training wheels.

2.03/5  rDev -25.9%

DATE TASTED: December 7, 2013... GLASSWARE: Michelob pilsner...OCCASION: Championship Saturday in the NCAA... APPEARANCE: typical straw-gold body of effervescence; white,, thin head that smears atop the bubbles; streaky lacing... AROMA: high-pitched oat and corn, with some fragrant bubblegum hops--inoffensive... PALATE: smooth, mega-drinkable; gassy, bubbly and brief in its substance...TASTE: astringently malty, thin, with a profile of a sweetened light beer; not memorable or substantial...OVERALL: as Yuenglings go, on the bottom rung; Solo cup filler, but much less a party staple than the original lager...

A crystal-clear, light-straw colored body is topped by a decent sized head of creamy bright white foam. The retention is limited and it drops in size rather quickly; but surprisingly leaves some nice lace as it goes. The nose offers very little more than a generic "beer" character. The body is light and crisp on the tongue. Not unlike the aroma, the flavor offers very little. There's a delicate touch of malt and a backing bitterness, but nothing really stands out. It finishes as short and dry as it begins. It's not a bad light beer in comparison to many others, however, as it's clean and straightforward without any "odd" notes to it. It's simply watered down Yuengling Premium and that's fine. But for the 10 or so calories, I'd rather have the extra flavor in the standard version.
