Can into Great Lakes pint glass.

White head and very nice golden color. Bubbles racing to the top. Some lacing left on the glass.

Beery. Grainy and a bit sweet.

Taste good. Crisp. Bready with a touch of hops.

Nice and smooth. Good hint of carbonation.

Outstanding. Good flavor and not filling. Low ABV takes it to another level.

Amazing light beer and value. Another workmanlike, good beer from Yuengling.

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.

Pale yellow to gold color and very clear. White head. Malt/hop and very fresh smelling nose. Fine white lace in the glass.A great look (which is rare in a light beer). A persistant white sheen stays on the surface of the brew. Crisp clean taste with a sturdy malt base. The hop finish gives just enough bitterness to leave your mouth wanting more. This is a great domestic light beer. The mouth is solid and smooth for a light beer also...

Got a can of this as a trade reward from Woodychandler. Never before did I think a brewery would sell both a "light lager" and "light beer". Go figure. Keep in mind, my rating is based on style, so it'll be a bit stacked in favor.

A - Pours a light golden head with a finger of white foam that quickly disappeared.

S - Light and sweet malt smell, very little here, but that's not surprising.

T - Very crisp and refreshing simple grain and malt flavor. Very simple but enjoyable flavor to wash down pizza with.

M/D - Mouthfeel is light, the beer gets out of the way and falls down your throat. About what I would expect. This would certainly be a go-to for pizza or a session when I had to drive soon.

I am truely amazed to find a lighter version of Yuengling's Premium. with a little bit Less malt . And not too bitter . The smell is spring fresh with no skunk to ruin your day. and blindfolded I dont think you could tell the difference in the taste from the Premium. {I am becoming quite a fan of Yuengling as one might tell]

The only light beer I've ever had that tastes like beer. Nice maltiness (not abundant, but more than, say, a Bud Light).

My preference in beers tends toward the British Isles, especially Scotch Ales, so malt is what I crave. I've been forced to drink crap like Bud Light because that's what one of my drinking buddies likes (this is WV, and exposure to real beers is at a minimum), but that's just me being sociable. You don't have to force me to drink Yuengling Light, for when I want lower ABV, so I can spend an afternoon putzing around on the deck, this beer more than adequately fits the bill. Regular Yuengling's is my fav American macro, and the light comes in neatly behind.

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.

The light version of Yuengling Premium. Less malt than it should have. Slightly bitter, but highly drinkable. Smell is clean and fresh. It is sometimes almost undistinguishible from the Premium. This is also good on draught.
