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.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear, copper-colored body topped with a medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is light pale malt with notes of grain and bread. The flavor is light pale maltiness with a slight amount of caramel sweetness, light breadiness with a light hop character that creates a small amount of bitterness. The finishes is crisp and clean. Light-bodied. It served a purpose while in Hilton Head.

djd07 (8020) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper golden with a small frothy white head that leaves decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a light corn malt and grain. The taste is a crisp malt with caramel and a spicy finish. A decent pale lager from Yuengling.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1267-20080408] 12floz can. Grainy haystacks and dirty barn floor aroma with mild green leaves and fermented Concord grapes. Clear, bright amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fermented grapes in the flavour, mostly grainy alcohol and floral hay and straw bundles and peat notes. Medium body is grainy but not harsh. "It’s better than a kick in the teeth."

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
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.

bb (7986) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Bottle. An amber color with little aroma. It's deinately better than your standard American lager, with more of a malt presence. Easy to drink.

douglas88 (7961) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Smooth and crisp taste with some malty undertones. A really good beer to drink in a bar, or really anywhere. A decent head, but not much of a aftertaste or aroma. Good beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7930) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On Tap. Crystal clear light copper color with white head hanging around the edge of the glass. Light aroma mostly sweetness of some sort. Light and fairly crisp flavor of malty sweetness and some dryer grain malts. I canít detect any hops. Very light beer that ends a little un-balanced leaning toward sweetness.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
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.

blipp (7777) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not quite caramel, but close. Medium/thin body. Flavor is the same sweet malt from the aroma with the faintest hint of hops. This is way better that most pale lagers, I actually enjoy drinking it... and itís pretty common to find on tap at many bars here in the northeast.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 I had this while visiting TN on vacation with my fianceeís family and was apparently too busy to take good notes beyond the numbers. I was very excited to try this because Iím from the Midwest and people talk about it all the time. Overall it was fine, but disappointing with all the hype. Now that Iíve moved to FL, I can get this all the time. For being grouped with the "domestics" at restaurants and bars, itís always the best choice. Get it fresh on tap or out of the can and itís pretty darn good stuff - get it out of old green bottles and itíll be skunked.
