So I found myself a sixer of Yuengling Light for $2.50 at a grocery store in Washington DC. One of the better investment decisions Iíve made recently (damned markets). It was a scorching hot day, the beer was cold, and I was refreshed. Think rooftop scene in Shawshank Redemption. As far as color goes, its basically clear. Very little aroma or head. Flavor is pleasant enough; very weak but enjoyable. If I ever find another $2.50 six-pack of these boys Iíll buy it for sure.

12 oz bottle-pours a fizzy white head and gold color. Aroma is grain/light malt-some sweet caramel. Taste is grain/light malt-some sweet caramel, barely noticeable hops. Musty, thin. Minimum carbonation.

Got to try this in Tampa. The word is light . Light color, small head, light aroma, light body, light flavor and short finish. Drinkable for cold, wet and light alcohol.

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2004
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.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of ahab trade with TurboBoosters. I gained 0.6 pounds eating a goddamn fucken a brorrito so I figure I better sneak in a light beer tonight to lose some weight. Fairly clear, slightly dark orange appearance (though still lighter than normal Yuengling) with a tan head. A touch fruity, light grassy, herbal, toasted cracker aroma. Not too sweet. Lot of cracker and toast in the flavor. Pretty good body. Not a horrible low boost pale lager.

NASTY. Why bother? Piss colored, rank and stank aromas. Rank and stank flavors. Man oh man this is just horrible. All grain and nastiness. Never again.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head that quickly fades. Aroma of grassy hops and slightly husky grain. The taste is grassy and leafy hops with faint grain and a slight sweetness in the finish. Thin and watery. Not bad.

GT2 (8467) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
355mL thanks to MrLo. The pour is a clear amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Husky malt nose. Not much else. Soapy, thinner taste. Definitely feels like more of a "macro" than typical Yuengling losing any sort of caramel malt body and lacks a good maltiness replaced by soap and contrived body. Not my thing..definitely a downgrade.

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
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.
