Pours a pale copper with a thin white head, quickly dissipates and has no lace. Smells lightly grassy.
Taste has a better malt profile than I had expected. Lightly sweet and hints of nuttiness. Light hops finish. However, overall it is too watery and doesn’t have much aftertaste. Very thin. Very drinkable though and as far as light lagers go, this one isn’t offensive.

Watery not much flavor, the color is more of an amber than the typical wheat colored light beer. It tastes muchlike a fountain drink imitatio nof a beer. Slightly better than a bud or coors light but not much. euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2005
The guys at Yuengling finally took advantage of the Light beer market. A bit of a watered down lager taste, but much better than other Light beers. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Spinach and rotting piss aroma. Definitely a light beer. Not a big fan, only dashes of hints at the true Yuengling flavor... like a girl giving you a flash of her spagetti straps under her shawl, rather than rubbing up against you and looking in your eyes.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 This beer is light. REALLY light. I drank about 7 of them and then played world championship pickup sticks. It didn’t make me the least bit drunk. I think the alcohol content is about .04 percent.
Also, the taste is about .04 percent. This is some watery, watery beer. You know those Amstel commercials where they’re watering the lawn from a keg? This is what’s in the keg. I’m sure it would be great for beer pong (that’s beirut to you middle-easterners).
Anyway, if you like a light beer that is SERIOUSLY light, shoot yourself and stop reading ratings on ratebeer.com, but go get a 72-pack of this beer and chug until you get a buzz.

I don’t like pils in general but when a friend drops by with a six pack, it’s impolite to not drink at least one. While it’s still close to water, this stuff actually tastes and smells like beer. I especially like the nutritional statement on the label. After all, beer is nothing more than drinkable bread. edden (925) - cow- lumbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2004

Light lager nose with a copper colored body. White head which quickly dissipates. Malty with a light lemon flavor. Clean finish.
This tastes alot like the regular lager. It is pretty good and is by far the best light beer I have had. All the properties are of the lager, just lighter. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2004
No head after the pour. Light corn and sweet honey aroma. Not much else. The taste is as expected. Nothing offensive. Minimal hops and some thin grass tasting malts. A decent brew that beats lots of BMC offerings. . Thanks civforprez for donating this beer. hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2004
THIS IS A LIGHT BEER. That stated, it is one of the best I have tasted. Comparing it to full lagers is not quite fair, but this one actually tastes better than it’s full lager brother. This is my everyday beer, smooth, smells good and very consistent batch to batch. If you’re looking for a sub 100 calorie beer, I doubt you can find a better flavor.
