305. Yuengling Traditional Lager

Another lager from Sunday afternoon and another beer that I got through a friend. This also may be my first review of a green bottle beer – I’m not going to look back through the prior 304 reviews but I cannot think of another green bottle beer.

This beer looks to have potential after the pour with a nice amber color and thin white head. Again the aroma is typical lager style with some sweetness but almost no hops. Beer is fairly simple but more flavorful than the prior review of Cisco Brewers Light Lager. Certainly some sweet malts to start and a slightly bitter finish. Overall a quality lager and certainly sessionable at 4.4% ABV.
