1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
For the widely available light beers around me, i consider there two groups of light beers. The first is the cheap ones (miller, bud, and coors) and the good light beers (amstel, sam adams, and yuengling). Micholob light is kinda somewhat in between. Yuengling is a good light beer, but I rank it third in that catagory of good light beers. But, it is also the cheaper of the three, so still a good choice if you want a light beer with some taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one is way under-rated here. This beer has a solid amber color, with complex taste overtones. Finishes malty, slightly hoppy, and fizzy. Arguably the best light beer on the market, along with Sam Adams light lager.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nothing like Yuenglings other beers. I see this as their attempt to enter the light beer market and it was irrationally done. Got a sample from a Yuengling rep at my local distributer, waited until i was home to open it of course but i was surely disapointed. The color was too clear to be a "lager". Dont think about it unless you need to drink light beer.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, can, draught. This beer is no good. I expected a decent light lager from a normally solid brewery, but this pours a nice color and thats about it. Watery and tastes like sour vinegar every time. I have never had one that I liked and I have tried it a few times trying to get a good one. I'm not a light beer drinker per se, but I can enjoy a decent crisp one when I get one. This is not one... it sucks.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear, golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is nondescript... very light toffee notes. There is no flavor. Ultra-light bodied. Fizzy, dry palate. Short, watery finish. Not offensive as it would need some sort of flavor to offend me. This one doesn't. Ignore this beer and maybe it will just go away.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprised to find out that this is a domestic beer. It's definitely better than the standard macrobrews found in the U.S. It has a light, clear appearance. Slightly more flavorful than most light beers.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Typical light beer but hidden behind the Yuengling label. Better than miller, coors, or Bud, this light beer has a decent aroma and appearance.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Typical light beer, but I'm partial to Yuengling so it's already better than most macro lights to me. Very much like the original just light. Refreshing and clean tasteing. I don't drink light beer so I doubt I'll have it again.

This is a disappointment. It's crystal clear with a sweet corn-malty character. Yuengling continues to go down hill.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light clear copper colour with a very fast dissolving tan head. Aroma of metal, malt and a super light hoppiness. Not bad for a light! Light-bodied (just as expected); Ultra-Carbonated; Thin malt flavour with a bunch of metal and no hops nor sweetness. Overall, a decent light, hardly any taste, but the aroma is nice! I sampled this twelve ounce beer courtesy of Haddon90 on 19-December-2003, Purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia. Thanks again Phil!
