3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 First rating
Draught at Bar Louie, Palm Harbor/Clearwater, on January 21, 2014.
Clear copper color, white head. Sweet, malty taste. Malty aftertaste. To the high side CO2 fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, malty scent.
Tried a few more times while in Ft Lauderdale, FL. From bottle on Jan 20 and from a few cans on Jan 21, 2015.
Clear golden colot, white head. Sweet, malty, uncomplex, but not bad scent and taste. Fizzy high CO2 mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Decent, fairly nice, well drinkable lager for sure.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours golden with white head on tap, aroma is some grass, hay, and earth. Taste is light grass, bread, slightly bitter finish. Very average lager, but better than a lot of them.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
710 ml can. From Gerry, NY.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head.
Sugary fruity and sweet malty aroma. Aromas of Baltic Strong Lager and Danish Vienna combined. Not that tempting. Mild hops, sweet malt and Play-Doh in flavour. Disappointment.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Clear orange color. Thin, mostly white head, fading to minimal, then barely nothing, eventually. Decent lace enough lace to start out, though. Bubbles on side of glass. Moderate, more smooth + crisp, but stronger carbonation, but kinda acidic texture. Aroma is faint, a little watered down, but whatís there isnít that great. Some caramel malt, light spice, little lagery funk, not much else. Not really much taste, either. Sour zest, some savory, not really sure, itís faint. Good, for a cheap american macro-lager to get in lieu of Bud Light or whatever. I think this is slightly worse than Yuengling Light, but Iíll still probably continue to choose this version just because itís a cheaper for the ABV. This is all about the cheap buzz, right?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Green bottle with much thanks to bu11zeye (and angrypirate06). Pours with a clear, light copper-amber body and a fading white head. Aroma is sweet, corn, caramel, nutty. Taste is water, nuts and caramel. Not entirely offensive. Lively bubbles, dry and watery finish.

On tap. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a notes of musty bread with some grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor started with a slight citrus and grain note with some grass and hay coming out in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear bright amber, average white head with poor retention. Light grainy aroma. Watery light grainy palate with hints of caramel and metal. Pretty blah.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. As the beer choice was between this and Sam Adams Light at a reception I was invited to on my trip to the US, I thought I had better give the Yuengling a go. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised. Itís clean, with a touch of malt and a slightly sweet edge. A bit bland, but it is a pale lager. In fact, itís quite reasonable for a pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
TAP: copper/amber pour, smells like wheat/grass, taste is earthy. Not great, not terrible, just there. A Philly staple.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, House of Brews, NYC. Copper with a thinning off white rim. Cherry drop aroma with toasted nut hints. Bready, toasted malt slicked with caramel; vague cream and toasted nut hints. Toffee popcorn afters with vegetal streaks. More like a cheap Eurodunkel than a lager IMO. Drinkable.
