Transfer from BA review on 9-14-13-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a nice golden amber color with a two finger bubbly just off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave some spotty islands of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall, but has notes of a bready and corn nature. There are some notes of a caramel sweetness as well rounding out the smell.
Taste – The taste begins super light and watery with a little bit of a bready taste and some corn. It remains this way throughout the taste with just a bit of graininess and herbs coming to the tongue. With a bit of a paper taste coming to the tongue at the end, a rather light and watery, slightly off flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is super light and watery with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Appropriate for the style with it giving the beer an overall more refreshing feel.
Overall – On the plus side it looks rather nice for a light beer, but other than that well…

Yuengling Light is a step up from "Natty Light" and I happen to love to swill that beer when more than one is needed. YL has a good color and its has a fairly strong aroma for a light brew. It’s taste is mild and does not leave an aftertaste. This is definitely a beer that the lovers of heavier beers should steer clear of. but for those mere mortals who love a cold one while mowing the yard will simply enjoy the mild but refreshing flavor.

Bottle. Nose is light caramel, grain, aspartame. Flavor is mainly caramel and fake sweetener. Not bad for a hot day. frederickllave (40) - - AUG 25, 2014

12 oz. bottle at Mynt, the kinda douchey clubby bar on Fountain Square in Cincinnati. Wasn’t here by choice, might as well grab a new rating. Pours a pretty good amber color for the style, with a white head. Notes of pale and amber malts, corn, straw, cereal, and diet tea - like an artificially sweetened, weak tea. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. The sweetener brings down an otherwise good take on the style.

It has a weird dry finish. Just seems watered-down version of the non-light. Also seems to have a sour palate rxeight (3084) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014

Poured from a 12 ounce can. I am going to start by saying I am surprised by how much flavor this has. The aroma is corn sweetness, bready, toast. The flavor is grainy, corn, light green apple note. This is light bodied and lacks depth, but is surprisingly good. A light lager that isn’t getting Footbalmed. slylon (7) - Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2014 does not count
My "go to" summer beer for mass quantities. bread, toast, leaves, ginger, woody, but not too much of any, making a perfect hot weather, highly chuggable beer for ballgaming and throwing down to loud music
