1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Randomly rating this one on memory because I never want to drink this brew again. Let me begin by saying that I am a big fan of Yuengling brewing as a whole, I will gladly enjoy a couple pints of their flagship regular amber lager, but i was unsettled by how unpleasant their attempt at light beer was. Weak metallic and bready aroma, pours an awkward pale gold copper color, trying to be what a proper Yuengling ought to look like. The best word to describe the taste simply is "cardboard" - stale pale malt with some unnatural sweetness. Just not worth it, if you're not feeling up for real Yuengling just go with Coors or Budweiser already.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The aroma was probably the best thing about this one. It smelled of thick white bread and sweet buttered corn on the cob. The head started out enormously impressive but rapidly dissipated into a totally uneven sliver. The color is that of light copper, very dark for this pale lager class. Overall the appearance gave me hope, but alas, then I tasted. The taste is initially pretty sweet and then it turns into wet cardboard. Paper thin on the palate, and puts a frown to my face. Thankfully the finish is nonexistent after a mere few seconds. Just a very unpleasant tasting light beer but I will say I have had far worse macrobrewed light beers (Hello Coors Light!). To drink this, it would have to be a very hot day and this beer would have to be ice cold, and there would have to be no other alcohol present. But life is too short to drink bad beer.

12oz bottle shared by the in-laws. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malt, some bready notes, crackers, grass and some skunky notes. Mostly just watered down nothing. No reason to really do this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This has been poured in pilseners and pint glasses over the years when I spent more time on the East Coast.
The appearance was a nice light golden yellow color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute and leaves some light adequate lacing.
The smell had a quick light but sharp sweetness about it but I couldn’t really put my finger on it as to what the sweetness actually was.
The taste was slightly sweet.
The palate, well, that sat exceptionally light and had a decent carbonation about it for a Light Lager.
Overall, it is what it is for the style and perhaps one of the better ones of Light Lagers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can into a pint glass on a hot summer day in Atlanta.
Clear amber body, a deeper color than expected, with a decent, foamy white head.
Aroma: the weakest aspect of this beer is the hoppy but slightly metallic aroma.
Flavor: not metallic but not as hoppy as the aroma suggests.
Crisp, light body with medium-high carbonation.
O: exceeded my low expectations.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lager with small bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of sweet notes with light cereal notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet cereal notes with almost no aftertaste. Body is light with good carbonation. Easy drinking lager with very little complexity.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild grassy malt aroma. Soft clear caramel color with a head that fades to a light film. Hint of caramel with a soft bitterness. Light clean finish. Better than your traditional big beer pale lager. Though not a superstar beer i thinks a good everyday go to type.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can, drunk 3/30/14 and a few more the next few days.
Moderate to low head retention atop a light amber body.
Smells sort of waxy, somewhat oxidized, maybe a touch of caramel? Not really. Hops? Eh, perhaps a touch of spice, but thats probably stretching things.
Waxy, papery, cardboard and vanilla. Can’t really differentiate this stuff from the Big Two. I guess tastes more like a European pale lager. Not quite as adjuncty, but still just as stale and lifeless. Still, drinkable, I guess and not particularly offensive. Not good though, that’s for sure.
