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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Perfectly clear yellow color, minimal white head. An unpleasant slightly skunky nose-smell. Aroma is very watered down, a hint of white bread under there. Carbonation is sharp, but not actually overwhelming. Light body. There might be some other grains in here, perhaps rye. Taste is hardly there at all, maybe a bit savory, just mostly water. Nothing good nor bad about it. This light lager is what it is... Better than most other light lagers I’ve had

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Philly airport. Better than BMC. Worse than most. Not offensive but very non-descript.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap (free sample, yay) after the (free, yay) brewery tour of the Tampa brewery site, on Feb 1, 2011
Clear yellow color, white head. Sweet, mineral, a bit fruity taste. Moussy mouthfeel, fairly low bitterness. Cream, malty, sweet scent.
Of the US light beers I’ve had, thismust be the best one so far. Didn’t mind it at all, can see myself buying it, well, if it was available that fresh, and in Sweden... Can’t say how it is from bottle or can though, but draught at the brewery was nice!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle at Mynt, the kinda douchey clubby bar on Fountain Square in Cincinnati. Wasn’t here by choice, might as well grab a new rating. Pours a pretty good amber color for the style, with a white head. Notes of pale and amber malts, corn, straw, cereal, and diet tea - like an artificially sweetened, weak tea. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. The sweetener brings down an otherwise good take on the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A la pression à la brasserie à Tampa, FL.
Dorée claire, mousse blanche.
Arôme de blé léger, finement houblonnée. Bien que de la catégorie light, je trouve cette bière supérieure laissant en bouche un palais léger de blé, houblon ajoutant une fine couche d’amertume et de citron. Reste très légère en bouche, effervescente. Reste buvable pour ce que c’est.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
