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.

A pretty decent light beer. I have always been a fan of all yuengling beers and this one didn’t dissappoint me. Flavor was pretty good for light beer as well. KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 The nose is a milder version of the grassy, earthen nose on the Lager. The tone is lightly golden with a decent white head that is a bit fizzy but actually laces a bit. Well, the tastes are very mild and the mouthfeel watery, but this beer is not much of a dropoff from its big brother, which is at least an average beer. There are none of the Lager’s acidic or syrupy drawbacks present in this one, and the very mild taste is at least pleasant and drinkable. Really, this is a top-of-the-line light beer, and considering Sam Adams Light has 130 caleries, this might be the best of the true light beers in America.

Tastes like their original lager, except watered down. Not bad for a light beer, but that’s not saying much. Weak aromas with a large dose of sweet corn flavor. Had on draft, maybe the bottled is better.

Why bother with a light other than economic nessisity. This one is not as bad as others but if you want water in your beer just add it yourself PorterPounder (8228) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Light copper appearance - impressed - expected dark yellow - light , thin and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of cinnamon, pepper and a faint wort-like esence. Flavor has some fresh lake water accents with a very faint trace of nuttiness that turns to metallic blandness. Aftertaste is a bit metalic and the mouthfeel is slighlty thin. Not the best effort from Yuengling. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2004
I’m so torn...its Yuengling Lager...but its Yuengling LIGHT Lager. This makes me cry. Yuengling, don’t give in to the evil, please... UNCCTF (587) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Bottled. This isn’t at all bad for a light beer - way more similar to its parent beer than Miller Lite or Bud Light - the heavier flavor and mouthfeel is still there, albeit a little watered down. Dorwart (2607) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Thin head. Decent carbonation. Nasty aroma. Stale water, weak malts and a bit of hops. Color is a medium golden orange. Good color for a light beer. Flavor is not good. Corn, bit of malts and a slight bit of dough at the end. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. I guess it is decnt for a light beer.
