12 oz glass bottle. Pours a dark amber/brown with a lasting half finger of white foam. Nose is sweet malts and light earthy hops. Borderline corn adjunct sweet. Similar taste. Cereal grains, light caramel, and faint earthy hops. Finishes sweet. Watery and easy drinking. Not bad for what it is.

12oz into a large pilsner glass, pours a nice roasted fire red with caramel and fluid amber highlights. Aroma is grainy, corny, malty, red amber Waves and flat hops. Taste is metallic, corn, weak malts, sugared beets, bland lettuce, and old dry hay. Drinks well, lively carbination, bubbles everywhere, not harsh on the palate, a giving flow for a generic lager. Finally got it here in MA after all these years so I had to pick it up. Not bad for a macro, a true amber it is, but really is a Killians dumbed down a bit.

Not sure what the big deal is with Yuengling. Came in a green bottle with a twist-off top, so there are two strikes. But this isn't much different than Miller Genuine Draft except with a wee bit more flavor. But microbrew? Craft beer? No way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (402) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Golden amber color. Smells of wet mash and malt. Smooth light hops malts wash it out. Smooth.

joejames (40) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours light amber. One finger head quickly disappears with no lacing. Highly carbonated. Tastes slightly sweet, just a hint of hops. Light body. Finishes like cardboard. Slightly better that most TV beers.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Cardboard finish. Refreshing with slight body. Bitter nasty finish. Starts way better then it finishes.
