12oz clear. title so no pour but it looks like standard gorilla piss. stinky, skunky aromas. taste isn’t much better (yet it is). still, very skunky, somewhat bland but it still tastes like beer. just not beer i would want very often. mouthfeel is a lot of carbonation but this could be consumed in a matter of seconds if it needed to be. again, it’s beer. i like beer but this was not very good beer.

24 ounce can, I have no idea what the stamp on the bottom says so I have no idea about the age. Drunken convenience store purchase so it's been in the cooler since I bought it yesterday. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch or so off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells mostly like grainy malt and a bit of corn and apple. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma but I think the graininess stands out compared to the other flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. If you're into lighter grainy tasting beers then this one is certainly worth trying. It's more flavorful than I was expecting, a pleasant surprise to me for the style of beer this is!

Not absolutely terrible, but no where near “next generation” lol. Honestly, I will admit I’m a beer snob. I have the right to this claim because I’ve tasted The greatest beers on earth, however, on a hot humid summer day.. a summer day that has me outside working in the heat.. Am I going to waste a world class ipa to quench my thirst? No. I’m going to knock back a few High Life’s before dinner.. I’m always on the lookout for a new, better cheap macro lager. This wasn’t it unfortunately and I was pulling for it! Yuengling has a few lagers that really aren’t all that bad

Flight pours bronze, lots of bubbles, with a little, and long lasting head. Sweet corn aroma. Flavor is very light, not much there, some notes of sweet corn; not too offensive. Good body and feel.

Had one at Punk in Drublic, didn't feel like water so most plus points come from that, not bad not great. Had a good body to it, there was an odd grainy flavor that was kinda meh but like I said at a concert this isn't a bad choice

Not a fan of this beer, to grassy/grainy for my taste and really didn’t have much of a taste at all. But it is light, refreshing and easy to drink. And I had it having a very nice time.

This beer was served at a small, friendly dive bar in downtown Bryan. Our friend Rockin Rob was singing and this was the last beer of the night. Had it in the bottle. Pale yellow and some lacing. It is now part of a good memory!

Served from the can in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises mild cereal grains, light sweet vinyl, and a touch of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, just escaping Absolute Blandness a sliver by displaying a twinge of dust. The body is rather light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Unlike their Light, this lager dips below the average, coming awfully close to macro lager territory.

Light done right.
It's so good for light that I'm not sure I trust the carb and calorie numbers but if it's available and I want light, it's going to be FLIGHT.

Being an IPA drinker with a high ABV, this Flight caught me by surprise. For me, it is the most satisfying light I have ever tasted. Even my wife enjoys it on a warm summer afternoon.

From a bottle, pours as yellow with loads of carbonation, but essentially no head. Aromas of "mineral water" with slight grain. Sweet corn flavors, nicely crisp with the carbonation, but watery. Any Malt and hops flavors are slight. Overall, there is nothing offensive. So, deeply chilled on a hot day, this is solid.

Finally Yuengling has come to Texas! So, I have to try 'em all. I'll start with Flight. I'm not a fan of Ultra Lights at all. But, this one isn't bad at all.
It's nothing special. But, has more flavor than other Ultras. Before I knew it I had downed six while mowing the grass. Good back yard BBQ or yard work beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a light level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall. There is a hint of grain and a touch of caramel. Along with these smells comes some very light hay and a little bit of corn.
Taste – The taste begins with a light cracker malt flavor mixed with some caramel and corn sweetness. At the same time there is a little bit of a grain taste that persists throughout. Toward the end of the taste, the sweetness increases a bit while the malt fades. A little bit of hay comes at the very end, leaving on with a light and crisp taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is high. For the style the feel is great, making for a very nice easy drinking and refreshing brew.
Overall – A rather easy drinking and refreshing light beer. By no ways a powerhouse, but for its purpose a decent go to.

For a ultra light beer this is definitely at the top of its class. It’s an ultra light beer that actually has taste ( even though it’s faint), but as a feel to it that you can consistently drink them and not feel bored. It is much better then Michelob Ultra and Corona Premier. Simply because it still has a beer taste. The price point is what keeps folks away from trying new beers.

I consider this beer to be a slightly higher quality ultra light beer. It's very light in color and while it has that typical ultra light flavor profile, it's very clean and refreshing. Not a bad choice for a hot day and definitely better than me other ultra light selections.

Pours a standard translucent gold with a fluffy white head that dissipates in a few seconds. This one smells like actual barley malt and has a slightly floral hop smell to it. The taste is somewhat fuller than an average light beer with a nice barely presence and little adjunct sweetness. It's got a slightly crisp and bitter finish to keep it from being too sweet. It's very carbonated and very refreshing. Overall probably the best light lager I've ever had.

For a light beer this is pretty damn good. More flavor and alcohol than amstel light. I recommend it for a party or whatever. It’s not a sippin’ beer but its great for a session.
