I don’t know why it took me this long to have Yuengling Light, but I finally did and it has great taste for being light, I will always love Yuengling, best out of a bottle

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear blonde golden coloured body with a nice white head that seems to last for a bit. Good for a light beer, but still doesn’t match with the Sam Adams light appearance. Aroma of pale malt, very low amounts of hops, some cardboard and an actually very nice smelling orange/citrus twang. Super-light-bodied; Tastes similar to water, with no horrible metal, malt, stale hops or any other off-flavours. Aftertaste shows a very light amount of malt, and some of the citrus sugars, but nothing else. Very non-offensive and mild. A good light beer-especially for what people want, a mild and alcoholic water. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle given to me by my brother-in-law who pulled this one from a 12 pack sampler on 01-January-2005.

Nothing much to report here. Just your standard light beer, this one coming from "America’s Oldest Brewery".

I’ve never had Yuengling Premium Beer, only the Lager. So I can’t talk about the Premium Light compared to the Premium, although I am really disappointed in Yuengling on this one.

Light and yeasty, not crazy about this beer. Digestible, that’s about all that can be said for it. Flavor that’s not off-balance, but not particularly friendly either.

Luv the Yuengling family!! They make some good ass beers in general. Pretty good taste for a light beer. Almost up there with my Coors light. Nice pleasant malkt and hops flavor to it. Good head, nice and creamy. Good smooth satisfying finish. Clean and crisp. If I wanted a different light beer this would be it. Old Monk gives it two thumbs up!!

I find it wet-towel-smackingly ironic that ’premium’ so often translate’s to the layman’s terms as ’inferior’. This case is in my opinion no exception. What I mean is that Yuengling Light is a better tasting, better palated beer than Yuengling Light Premium; what’s up with that?

Not nearly as good as the original but for an american lager from a large scale brewery I give then all kinds of credit for not tasting like a coors or bud.

As light beers go you could do much worse. Typically pale yellow coller. Some malt in the nose, also a faint vinegar. Suprisingly creamy body with some malt and hop presence. A decent clean finish. I think I’d take this over any other light beer I’ve had.

Pours pale yellow. Some aroma of malt. Tastes slightly malty with some hops. Crisp and pretty smooth at the finish.
