This is less than just a watered down Yuengling. They added (or took away) something to give it an off diet taste. No need for me to have this again.

Water water water. Watery is the rule of the day when it comes to light beers, especially American light beers, and this is no different. Quite disappointing since Yuengling is usually pretty good, but this has NONE of the flavor of their lager. Just plain sad.

Bottle: Light watery. Flavor of old vegetables. Not worth the time when the regular is so much better

Watery. Not much flavor besides a tangy corny taste. Not a good "light" version of the regular Lager.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2009
12oz Bottle. A very neutral, cold sugar nose. Pours, well, I dont know, I drank it out of a bottle while I was standing in a barn. Isnt that what you do with this beer? Flavor was damn near water. I had trouble detecting much beer flavor through the water, ice, and cold glass. Carbonation was a little low. Somehow I could stand this more than regular Yuengling, just because I dont have to suffer through the intolerable cooked cereal corn flavor. Much more thirst quenching. Flavor is absolutely absent.

She shimmers in my glass a dazzling array of polished copper and mahogany, a blessing in comparison to all the other macro light lagers that resemble yellow-hued water at best. A minuscule head disappears into a thin ringlet while her nose slowly makes her way to mine. Sweet butter rolls, slivers of toffee, and melba toast laced with crunchy caramelized sugars. A touch sweeter than I was expecting, but a decent showing for a light lager. The finish is sweet summer corn and brushed white rice, an unfortunate result of said adjuncts. A bitter kiss of lemon and I partake of the first of many perplexing quaffs. The standard Yuengling lager is by far one of the more full-bodied adjunct tinged lagers available. That being said, in comparison to a rich traditional German or Vienna style lager, she falls short both in body and palate. My tastebuds are met by a watery body matched by a watery palate. A touch of lemon, butter rolls, melba toast, toffee and caramelized sugar estersthen nothing. A kiss of flavor, brief and fleeting, and then all that is left is a memory doomed to fade away. A hard bite in the finish threatens to smother the lemon skin and green grass bitterness that tells me there are at least some hops used in the brewing of Yuengling Light. A bubbly watery mouthfeel matched by a thin palate goes down too clean; Id like to at least savor to some degree what it is that I am willfully imbibing.

Is Yuengling Light better than ***** Light? By a long shot, absolutely. But thats also the same as comparing water from an old well versus water from a fresh arctic mountain stream. Sure, one is incomparably better than the other, and if one had to choose the choice would be obvious. But that still doesnt change the fact that whether well or spring, its still water. Yuengling Light may be a shimmering river of fresh arctic water, but its still water nonetheless.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours pale pale golden with a medium white head. Not much to hate; not much to love. Better than other macro lights, but that is the very definition of damned by faint praise. Had one when a friend accidentally bought this instead of Yuenglings regular lager.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle pours deep gold with a white head. Aroma is relatively malt forward for being a light beer. If this is your style, you could definately do a lot worse.

Nothing amazing. Its like a yuengling, but without any of the flavor or body. Better than a macro brew, though.

DiarmaidBHK (4450) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from weis lewisburg. Pours light brown with a thin white head. Smells like cut grass. Finishes dry. This is a real disappointment compared to lager. It has none of the maltiness and flavor of the original.
