This is one of my favorite beers to drink from draught. Though on bottle it isn't quite as strong a brew. This is definately a beer one should try from a bar room tap to get the full effect of this fine beer.
Its clean, crisp taste is a welcome change from so many other mass produced beers.
I has a good balance of hops and malt, with a slight hint of the grain adjuncts used in the brewing. Clear yellow, nice formed head with small packed bubbles. Goes down easily and smoothly. Very drinkable.

Yuengling Premium Beer brew by Yuengling Brewery, with an ABV of 4.40% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is sweet with grains and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste it is sweet with grains and malts. Not bad but not great. Yuengling Premium Beer has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel of Yuengling Premium Beer is nice,clean and smooth. There is nothing bad about this brew. I like how this brew goes down smooth. Overall I'm giving Yuengling Premium Beer a 4.25 out 5. This brew is a nice drinking brew. Nothing fancy but nothing cheap. I would buy this brew again. Thank you Yuengling Brewery

Appearance: Pours to a straw yellow with a decent amount of foam. The foam endures very well.

Smell: A nice, malty, almost lager-like aroma. Nothing overpowering in the aroma. I detect a hint of some grain in the aroma

Taste: A smooth refreshing brew. A little light on the hops, but there is a nice almost lager-like sweetness that hangs around the edges with this brew. There is more character to this beer than a typical BMC swill-fest.

Mouthfeel: Not heavy, of course, but not watery. Carbonation is present but manageable.

Drinkability: This is one of my favorite session beers or "game with friends" beer (wish I could get it regularly in Ohio). Refreshing and not overpowering on the ABV, this slips down easily.

Yuengling's offerings are among my favorites.

It's a 12 oz bottle poured into a Yueng pint glass.

C: Pale yellow/Straw

A: Sweet corn and mild hops

T: Tastes sweet with a corn flavor, mild hops and good carbonation. Not bad

O: Premium is a great summer beer, drink it when cutting the grass or working on the car to quench your thirst.

$11.29 for a case of Yuengling - less than $.50 cents a can.

Value - can't be beat

Brewed locally - can't be beat

Taste - better than the national competition at this price point - can't be beat

A light colored lager with some hop "kiss" - nice drinkability - refreshing - smooth - a session beer at its best.

This is the first time I try the Premium. The Lager is a bit sweeter. I definitely like the Premium better! Smell: Corn, Hops, Yeast like traditional AAL. Here in NJ a 24 pack costs $12.99 a case! Lager costs $17.99 a case. Overall a solid 4 for taste and value. A good go to beer and definitely underrated and unnapreciated especially if you're on a budget. Cheers!
