1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Lacks the characteristic hoppy base of Yuengling Draft. Not satisfying. If I grabbed one of these out of the cooler again after a hockey game, Iíd throw it back.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice sessionable pale ale. Nice hop aroma and taste. A little bitterness in the mouth lingers. This beer deserves a higher rating than the 12 it currently has.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
355mL. Pours clear, deeper yellow to light amber. Medium to weak, soapy white head. Okay to poor retention. Spots of soapy lacing. Nose is not bad at all- some biscuit, bread, dough, toffee, fruity pineapple, sharp lemon. Taste is actually a bit hoppy up front, but very soapy and chemical in the long finish. Body is lighter with mild toffee and biscuit maltiness to near zero. Feels very soapy. Sharp, aggressive, chemical aftertaste. Ick.

Draft: finally had this one on draft since the only bottle I have ever had weíre always skunked. This is ok if itís fresh, and isnít skunky. Itís sweet and refreshing, but a little boring.

Bottle - pours pale yellow with white head. Smells like a pilsener with corn. Flavor adds light caramel. Faint bitterness. Light overall and refreshing.

12 ounce bottle pours a golden color, aromas of dough, grass, and light hops. Not much aromas, flavors follow suit, no zestyness like the descrpition above promised.

Easy on the palate. Retains classic Yuengling character while having it in an ale form. Sweet aroma.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huh? Poured like a lager. Thin, clear yellow color with a fizzy head. Interesting taste, a bit grassy and more hopping than I would have expected. But overall not very impressed.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle to pint. Looks thin for an "ale"; golden with low carbonation and razor-thin white lacing. Smells sweet, doughy, and bitter. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not a bad macro, but still not sure if Iíd call it an ale.
