Iíve never had Yuengling Premium Beer, only the Lager. So I canít 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, thatís about all that can be said for it. Flavor thatís 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 ípremiumí so often translateís to the laymanís terms as íinferiorí. 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; whatís 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 Iíd take this over any other light beer Iíve had.

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

This is not Yuengling's best work at all, but it still managed to be somewhat refreshing. The light lager is better than the premium.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This is a light beer with some flavor. Now, really, I can honestly say that I didnít expect much, but this is better than what I expected. The appearance is no different from any other light beer and the head is weak and sewer looking, but the lacing looks okay. The smell isnít High Life bad, but it isnít great. Thereís some flavor! A little malty (just a little) with that crisp carbonated light beer taste, with a nice trailing, slightly sweet and very natural and dry finish. The "Light Lager" is quite a bit better.

Poured a pale gold color with an almost nonexistent head. Light, thin aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is typical of a light beer ... better than most macros, but still a light beer and thin in taste.
