2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Whew! Macro pale lager at its budweiser-ist! Straw gold, thin head, even the funky adjunct flavor and aroma! Not impressed.
Taste and aroma of corn, very light, too fizzy. More corn on the finish with almost a wood flavor. Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 24, 2017
From Apr 2007
This pours from 12oz can a clear pale gold with a medium sized head of foam that dissipates quickly and disappears completely. There is no lacing.
The smell has a strong grain/corn nose to it. I can also detect some hop bitterness.
The taste on first sip has a mix of malt and hops but they're on the light side and...it's obvious that corn is used as an adjunct but I don't find that offensive at all. Further sips in and a musky taste becomes apparent but again, I don't find that offensive.
The mouthfeel is about right and the carbonation seems to be on the light side. The finish has some bitterness to it but the aftertaste is short lived and crisp. Not a bad drop at all.
Bottom line: This is a thirst quencher and, in my book, totally inoffensive. I like it. My thanks to jwc215 for sending me this one! gripweed57 (2966) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2017
From old tasting notes. Slightly hazy medium gold color with a big foamy white head. Zesty, tart, grainy malt nose. Crisp malt upfront. Tart middle. Clean dry finish. Slightly gassy. mike5326 (1788) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016

Vom Fass im Brauhaus in Pottsville. Goldgelb, Schaum Ok. Getreideduft. Süßlich im Antrunk, dann leichter Hopfen. Süffig. Ist aber auch schnell weg.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma has string lager yeast and grainy notes, much like that of a macro lager, just without a strong corn facet. It takes like a typical American adjunct lager, just with a touch more fruity hops, but it’s still slightly sour and slightly sweet. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Pounder can to shaker glass. Pours clear straw gold, two finger white puffy head. Some lacing and retention. Aroma of grain and straw. Taste is mostly sweet with a slight gassy hop note. Light bodied, average carbonation, mouth feel is thin Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of corn, grass, toast and bread. This was better than expected. mcox90 (2159) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12 oz. can that I found in my fridge. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy with a mildly sweet character with the flavor being the same. Light bodied. Not bad. generallee08 (778) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2016 It was served on tap at the Yuengling Brewery. Appearance: The body has a bright yellow color with very good clarity and lots of visible carbonation capped off with bright white head. The head is light and soapy and it quickly fads out leaving a wispy thin filmy layer. Smell: The aroma has a light and cereal like malt base with a light floral and grassy hops in the background. Taste / Palate: The flavor has a cereal and light grain like base malt note with a light floral and grassy hay like hops. It’s body is light and refreshing with average carbonation.

Pours a clear gold with a thick white. Aroma is like a any other generic beer. Taste has a bit of bitterness to it on the backend. Not a bad beer at all from Yuengling.
