3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well, I seem to be the exception to the norm for this beer. I don't get Yuengling often and I don't think this is as bad of an offering as most people think. If I were to classify this to a style, I'd call it an American Blonde Ale, but since I probably shouldn't, here goes: It's got a fantastic bright golden color although the head needs a little work. I got this in an enclosed case so the sunlight or florescent lights had not hit it considering it's in a green bottle. I'm thinking this beer is very fresh, it's got a fantastic floral hop, banana ester aroma; The flavor is almost the same but it also has some citrusy/hop flavors. It is very well balanced and finishes light and dry. I'll admit the body is a little thin, and carbonation a little prickly, but overall, I like this beer. It's a good summer sitting out on the porch beer with more gusto than your average macro.

Pretty sad, I loer ales and this is pretty poor. Little carbonation, little flavor and even looks bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow body with quickly dissipating head. Aroma is grassy hoppy, slightly sweet. Flavor is minimal for the most part, then some grassy hoppy bitterness shows up in the swallow and carries through to the aftertaste.

a very solid ale for the money. a bit bitter and in my opinion a bit better than yeungling’s lager. note: when bought a 6 pack a bit more bitter/skunked, but a case of it from pottsville itself was very tasty

Light and bubbly...what you are eating is very influential on this beer. Not Yuengling’s best, and slightly overpriced.

Nice gold color, kinda fizzy head. Lemony tastes and smells. Ends with a tight dry bitterness. Creamy mouth feel and overall nice. OK American light ale.

Dusty, papery sweet nose. Deep golden color. Alcohol taste, hoppy, very herbal leads to bitter dry finish.

Doesnt have much of an aroma or even a taste for that matter. The color is a little light but it is a blonde ale. Not any head and a lack of any real hops. Not the best beer from Yuengling but a try at something special. I was rather disapointed as all of the other yunegling products i have had have been far superior.
