Pretty light for an english ale. Lager is a much better choice

Very light in body and flavor. Not a very good beer. There is a terrible metalic finish on the beer. Not at all recommended. It is also noticably skunked, but that is from the green bottle I would imagine.

Cooked beer again! Light and not too much flavor. Corn on the nose or is that rice?

The most bitter of yuengling’s beers. I think one of their best.

From America’s oldest brewery - another ’old school’ beer like the Natty Boh I had a couple months back, or the Ten Penny from my university days. Or even the Molson Old Stock from that old codger’s bar a few months back. Anyway, most of these are the same - golden, fairly bland but with a shade more hop than the ’best sellers’. Could be worse, but we have micros now and nostalgia only goes so far.

A sub-par ale from America’s oldest brewer. Fizzy, unremarkable, and bitter.

Yuengling is 50-50 in my book so I wasn’t to disappointed when I took my first sip. No deal. I must of had a bad batch. Since I am a decent man and a forgiver I will give this beer another shot, but im not looking forward to it.

You would think that the oldest brewery in America would have plenty of time to perfect their beer, this is not the case though. Very average ale.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 More hopped and slightly more carbed than the lager. Don't like it as well as the porter and about the same as the lager. Good value. Re-rate: OK, after a couple more, I do like it a bit more than the lager - what a difference in taste it made to pour it into a smaller glass rather than from the bottle. Nice lacing of the head left after the beer was gone.
