Practically no head on this beer. Also no carbonation. A very full-bodied, amber appearance. I have to say that yuengling is great. Yuengling light makes my day too.

I think this beer is a great mix of taste and affordability. It won't blow you away, but is a solid drinkable lager that can readily be found from Northern NJ through Central PA through Northern VA. Pick up a 6 pack and toss a few back.

Just a solid good drinking beer. If you find yourself in a bar, especially NJ, and they have a limited beer menu, this is a solid choice. Great taste, chuggability and keeps you going back for more. A good beer!

For some reason this brew reminded me alot of Killians Irish Red. Amber color doesnt have a very malty taste. very mild taste not too strong and not too weak. Overall an pretty good brew.

Not a bad guzzling beer. Certainly better than most macros in its league. Nice amber color distinguishes it, creamy head. Very mild aroma and flavor. Refreshing.

Nice beer. Good lager. fresh. Amber in color. Little or no hop presence. It was mild tasting. Clean malty flavor. Ok.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I hate lagers. I repeat - I hate lagers. That being said, I do like Yuengling for what it is. It's a decent, inexpensive, every-day kind of beer. Overall, it's not my style (I prefer ales), so it's a little crisp for my taste. However, so far it's my favorite of the lagers. Pours a moderate amber color, with some head; doesn't last long though. Aroma's not great, in fact it's pretty funky; mild corn and alcohol; unexpected from an amber beer. Taste is light (again unexpected from an amber) and a little hoppy. Lacing? Fuggetaboutit. It does get a bit sticky in the mouth once you've had a couple. Still a good one to keep in the fridge on a regular basis, although not something with which to treat yourself.

This inexpensive lager leaves a carmel-colored sugary residue in your glass. It offers a seemingly strong, almost bitter taste, which increases as it warms. This malty lager however, if served just above freezing, offers a smooth palate. Also, at colder temps, the large but loose head stays under control. It makes a seemingly good housewarming beer for casual social events.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Strong aroma hits you as soon as you pop the cap. The taste is not quite so strong, though. As you begin to sip, the taste seems light, yet kicks in for a moment, only to fade again, leaving a light aftertaste. The moment of taste that you experience is dark, smoky, with a bitter edge. Overall, the taste just doesn't last long enough for me. But as far as American beers go, this one's a keeper.***On a second go-round, I found this beer a bit watered down in comparison to its jolly cousin, the Original Black and Tan. In comparison, it lacks greatly. IN comparison to other lagers, there are close to no North American competitors. The closest would be Molson Canadian Lager.

VERY GOOD BEER. GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME TO BEING BACK A CASE TO OKLAHOMA WHILE ON BUSINESS IN VIRGINIA. VERY SMOOTH, HAS A BIT OF A WHEAT TASTE TO IT.
