This is a bitter, hoppy brew! Thatís what it is...thatís what it is supposed to be. So, you donít like the bitterness? Fine. Donít dis the beer just because youíre a little girly man! ...OK, sorry...! This is one of those beers that not everyone can love. And Iím OK with that...but I love it. Itís got that bitter edge that I happen to love. Not everyday, not all the time, but this is an excellent brew, and I enjoy it with anything from steaks and burgers to hot dogs and corn on the cob! This great ale cuts through the heaviness of the food with its hoppy bitterness...all in all, a wonderful offering from Yunegling, and I highly recommend it.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is grain and fruit. The taste is slightly sweet with a grainy quality to it. Itís crisp and dry. Itís a decent session beer. Thereís not a lot going on. Itís inoffensive though.

Grainy aroma which reminds me of a Czech Pilsner. Clear golden color with a fine film of bubbles for the head. Has a light grain and zesty taste. The light body is refreshing. Clean finish.

Bottle. Corn/barley malt and straw aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet vegetal barley malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. Probably would have been a bit better if it wasnít in a green bottle.

Clear darker yellow, lots of carbonizing. Big white lasting lacing foam head. Strong barley aroma, donít like that. OK taste, not outstanding, barley and yeast dominated. (Chicago 201510)

Th beer pours a slightly hazy orangeish golden color with a small white head. The aroma has a strong dough yeast smell, but there is also a pale malt sweetness and a hint of fruitiness. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, and the sweetness hits the tongue first with more sour, slinky, and even slightly fruity flavors developing later in the taste. The palate fuses a a slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation. Overall, itís not bad, but itís not too good either.

Younglings best entry. I must admit you will either love or have this. Fruity taste yet bitter. Each sip tastes different. The only Yuengling beer still made in original brewery. Only drawback is I get a headache from drinking it. Thatís what ibuprofen is for

Transfer from BA review on 10-19-13-
Poured from green bottle into a pint glass
Appearance Ė The beer pours a nice golden color with a two finger billowy white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell Ė As may be expected from a green bottle, the brew has a bit of a skunky aroma. Along with the skunk are some aromas of a grainy nature as well as some smells of corn.
Taste Ė The taste begins with a grainy and corny taste. While corny, the taste is not too sweet, but on the moderate side. The grain smoothís out taking on a more bready flavor as the taste advances. Along with the transition of the grain to bread, there is also an increase in the hop, which too this point were very minimal. A bit of a grassy and herbal nature as well as a little bit of a hay like flavor are all present at the end leaving a lightly hopped, moderately sweet and smooth bready flavor, with only a hint of skunk flavor, to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel ĖThe body of the beer is on the average to slightly creamier side for the abv and the style with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both were decent for the brew, but nothing too exceptional.
Overall Ė Not the best brew out there, but if it wasnít in a green glass bottle it likely would have been slightly better due to lack of any ďskunkĒ. It was sort of a Heineken/Yuengling hybrid. Easy drinking but nothing too great.
