A mild hop character with strong corn and chemical characteristics as well. Light red color leads you to believe it will be better than most; and it is, by a hair.

The art losers and theater trash that drink this crap should really save mommy and daddy some money and get themselves some 40s. This stuff isnít the worst beer ever, but unlike a 40 or hurricane, yuengling has pretensions of actually being something I would want to drink. Well guess what, I donít. Itís barely a lager. Orange in color. Smells of corn and light hops. I have some respect for really bad beer itís mediocrity that gets me steemed, and this "lager" really takes the cake in that respect. DONíT buy this beer if you want to have a good brew. DO buy this beer if you need to get some emo trash sauced quickly.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) This is ridiculous. My fourth different Yuengling pale lager today, and thereís so little difference between them, whatís the point of all these? I can see having a pale lager and a light version, but two of each? Anyway, this is just as grainy as the Premium Beer, but thereís no corn flavor, itís not sweet, and thereís a mild cardboard flavor in the finish. This is not a good tasting beer, except maybe by macro standards. The nose is grainy and a bit like stinky feet. Light bodied. Golden-amber color is the darkest of the four, and the off-white head shows the best retention, maintaining a wide ring. I like the Premium Beer the best of the bunch, but mostly, Iím just glad this mini-tasting is over.

Had this in a can at the Blue Door last night. Nice and metallic. Not overly carbonated, which was nice. Some OK malts. I canít say much for the aroma. The hops were definitely a cut above those of the macros. I should mention, that this was the first beer I ever drank at college, my freshman year, underage, of course. I remember enjoying it then.

VERY overrated beer. Mainly for people who think they look chic or sophisticated by drinking it but in reality know nothing about good beer. I am from PA, and have no idea why this nonsense has such a cult following.

Had on tap at Fulton's Crab House in Downtown Disney. A quite bland lager, ripe with all the worst features of American macros: light color, artificial head, corn aroma, bland flavor. (But man, the food at this restaurant was most excellent!)

Light clear orange, small white head. Light stale hops aroma, has some beer taste, but not much. Way ahead of a typical budmillercoors product.

I hate lagers. I repeat - I hate lagers. That being said, I do like Yuengling for what it is. It's a decent, inexpensive, every-day kind of beer. Overall, it's not my style (I prefer ales), so it's a little crisp for my taste. However, so far it's my favorite of the lagers. Pours a moderate amber color, with some head; doesn't last long though. Aroma's not great, in fact it's pretty funky; mild corn and alcohol; unexpected from an amber beer. Taste is light (again unexpected from an amber) and a little hoppy. Lacing? Fuggetaboutit. It does get a bit sticky in the mouth once you've had a couple. Still a good one to keep in the fridge on a regular basis, although not something with which to treat yourself.

Slighly better than the average american lager, it still looks better than it tastes. It has a bigger body and maltier taste than most of its ilk. Now if it only had some hops..

Good drinking beer. I actually prefer this one from a can as opposed to the bottle. Decent draft beer, I generally drink this at home: $5 six pack vs $3 draft at a bar.
