This is my new go to beer. Since I live in southern NJ, I am in Yuengling Brewery's back yard. I used to drink Yuengling Lager, but after 3 or 4 it leaves me with a really bitter aftertaste. I had never thought to try this until a few weeks ago, I had a taste for a domestic beer. I bought a 6-pack, and I love it. Mind you, this is for casual drinking. this isn't going to blow you away like a microbrew or an IPA. This is just a good quality domestic session beer.

Appearance- 3.25, yellow, slight amber, light head
Smell- clean, sweet beer smell, no hops
taste- crisp, a tad sweet, no hops, light corn
mouthfeel- heavy carbonation, sweet finish, no after taste
overall- again, at 5.00 a 6 pack you can't go wrong. In my opinion, puts Miller, Bud, and Coors all to shame and saves you money in the process.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours translucent straw with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet cereal grain, a tad bit of corn, very sweet. Tastes of cereal grain, but much more flavorful than most adjuncts. Beer is light bodied, easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.
