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.

Ughsmash (7466) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear honeyed amber with a light cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up honey, corn syrup, and a touch of vegetable oil, with light lemon zest around.. kind of a dank impression on the back of the nose. The flavor found more honey and some bready malts at the core.. lemon left a little tartness on the edges, and some residual sugars on the finish.. too sugary-sweet at the end. Lighter-bodied with an odd interplay between tartness and the sugars.. OK level of carbonation.. decent stuff.

Draft to pint. Looks decent; copper with head that quickly turns into lacing. Smells like macro tap beer. Much like __________________ (fill in the blank with any pilsner advertised on tv). Tastes decent; upper end of macrobrews. Mouthfeel is meh. Overall, a decent beer for what it is.

downender (7394) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
On draft at a bar in Alexandria, Virginia October 2006. Pale amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a whiff of hops. The flavour also started with a touch of malt before a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, which Iím not a great fan of.

drowland (7382) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
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.

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.

A Sim Rate (on tap at Solas, NYC): Smells like soggy clothes when itís been raining. Tastes a bit like bud with a slightly aley tinge. Crap palate.

after4ever (7061) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
12-oz., trade w/BeachBum25. Pours medium amber with a thin, diminishing white head. Yeast on the nose, with a nice, clean, mild, neutral flavor profile all through the drink, from the attack to the finish. Session lager for a hot sunny day. Thanks for the bottle!

Ernest (7034) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Undrinkable macro clone. Oh, and for what it's worth...purchased cold and seemingly fresh in a bomber-size brown bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 Had from a variety case..enjoyed this beer, as far as pale lagerís go this is an average beer. Main point is that there is nothing offensive and its extremely easy to drink.

blankboy (6920) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2008
Can courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size somewhat-lasting off-white head. Mild aroma is sweet, almost overly so along with some grain and very light hops. Meh. Flavourís not very good initially. It got a little better several sips in but I still didnít much care for it. Toasted malt, grain, light grassy hops, somewhat watery and with a very light bitter finish. Average bodied. No sir, not something Iíd ever have again.
