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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This is a light beer with some flavor. Now, really, I can honestly say that I didn’t 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 isn’t High Life bad, but it isn’t great. There’s 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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pale gold color reminiscent of nearly every other light beer I have tried. Not much of an aroma and a very watery taste. Good carbonation and a slightly sweet taste. I will stick with the lager though.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Headless, pale golden. Nose is slightly sweet with a hint of toffee. A bit of diacetyl unpleasantness. Light to medium bodied with brisk carbonation. More flavorful than many light beers but still not very good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light copper color with hardly any head at all. Super Light. Some malt and hop characeristics in the flavor and taste. Smooth and watered down. Overall not bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fizzy gold, aroma of very light floral hops and perhpas a touch of corn. Strange, rather full mouthfeel, what did they add to give it this much body? Still a faint bit of corn, but I really can't complain about the spicy floral hops that came along gently on the finish. Not too bad for a light.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Probably the best light beer made, one of them anyways. Taste is crystal clear, with no cereal/grainy taste. Has a bit of a sour malt taste to go along with it, on the finish. Clean and crisp and what a light beer should be.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a very servicable lite beer. Parched malt aroma. A smidge tart. A hop or two. Fizzy. Lame appearance marks, but this is better than your average macro light. Better since Yuengling started putting stuff in a brown bottle, rather than green here in FL.
