COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An iconic American lager famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor - with a roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character.

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 Killian’s dumbed down a bit.

Not a lot of depth with this beer....very light. I’m not sure that I would drink this again.

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

joejames (100) - 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.

rjplumer (375) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Mild malty aroma. Clear caramel color on a one finger head. Some bitterness with a touch sweetness. Bubbly feel. Nice clean finish. Not too complex and a good everyday beer. One of the better examples of this style I’ve had.

BiffNilsson (178) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Ljusbrun med liten vit krona. Maltig söt doft. Ganska kraftig smak med mycket maltkaraktär. Förmodligen den bästa mainstream lagern från USA.
