Disappointed with this one, since I think Yuengling makes some great macrobrew. Watery, tastes like a weak version of the regular Lager...It doesn't help that I'm not a light beer fan, but just nothing special about it. Dorwart (2604) - 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. DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 2, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) One of four Yuengling pale lagers, I’m not sure I understand the point of having the majority of your products being pale lagers. This one tastes dry and woody, and it’s like drinking liquid cardboard. And it smells like wet, moldy cardboard too. Light bodied, somewhat watery. Clear, medium golden color is pretty dark for a light beer, and is capped by an off-white head that pours small and quickly settles to a very tiny ring. Not very good, and only slightly more flavorful than the Yuengling Premium Light Beer. waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2005
12 oz. bottle 12/24/05. A pretty good light beer. Definatly similar to that of the traditional lager. More watered down and nothing to great. Other than apperaling to light beer drinkers its not all that great. For sure one of the best light beers i’ve tried obviously behind Samuel Adams Light. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2007
My boss had a cooler of this stuff in his hotel room. Out of respect to the host, I had a bottle. This is your typical fizzy, adjuncty pale lager. Slightly sweeter and less hoppy than some of the macro competition. If you must have a macro light beer, go with Michelob Light or Amstel Light. This is beyond boring.

Doesn’t taste like much. Biscuit with some corny overtones. Almost no hops. Not sure what to make of this one. Ron (4065) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2007
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. obguthr (6536) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Slightly roasted barley aroma. Amber color, medium white head, good lacing. Metallic tasting and overly sour without justification. Weak flavor of grain, mild plastic finish. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Not much of a point to this beer for me. The regular lager is much better and I just don’t enjoy it in light form, it takes away everything good about the regular lager. rman18 (312) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2008
UPDATED: APR 30, 2008 This is terrible. Tastes sort of like the dark Michelob Ultra. I don’t know why anyone would drink this stuff, especially not a Yuengling drinker. At 3.8% alcohol its less then most light beers. Stay away.
