A good head, amber color, a bit malty. Real good and what more lagers should strive for. It may be cheap but if you are in Philly, do as the Phillians do......

A local favorite, Yuengling is a staple at parties or gatherings. Great on tap. Very crisp and clean. Good flavor.

Great beer right out of Pennsylvania that has blossomed onto the national scene of late.

Another great PA brew. So pretty to drink out of the bottle. Nice Color, sweet, easily drank in gallons. A beer for the people. What it lacks in complexity, it makes up for in price, and drinkability. Fun beer I bring a case on the plane with me whenever i go back. (yes i am originally from PA and remember this from my youth!)

I was pleasently surprised by this beer. Drank from the bottle so I have no idea what color it was. Seemed to me to probably be slightly dark...I donít know. Flavor however is magnificent for a pale lager. Notes of chestnut, cream, mocha and mardsous 8. No really. This was like the light lager version of Maredsous 8. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 This is a pretty good beer for itís price range, it has a very smooth taste and very little carbonation which is good for your beer guzzling needs. Not spectacular but still a great buy.

Good beer, but I liked it a lot more when I lived in Pa and drank it for $2 a pitcher during college. Canít get it in Michigan, but drink it in Florida...maybe it has spread too far now?

Used to be a lot better before it got this big. I used to walk into a place and ask for a Yuengling and people gave me odd looks. Now this stuff is at every dive bar around. Iíd drink it if I had to, but its really not my thing. Very over rated beer with a watered down hoppy taste and slight bitterness.

Ah Yuengling Lager, my old friend! Back in my college days (Go Owls!), this stuff could be had for $8.00 a case in PA (and it even came with a free bowl of soup). It was a staple in my fridge. I endured ridicule from my friends for drinking it. These are the selfsame chumps who now pay $18.00+ a case to swill this stuff. My how times have changed. This a VERY overrated beer. Itís taken on cult status with little regard given to the true merits of the beer. That said, it is a nice, crisp drink, but overall there is little to recommend it. You could serve it at a BBQ without fear of poisioning anyone. Suspect odor, a hint of malt and a dissapearing hops kick leaving you wanting more. The girls love it (which translates to you loving them after about a 6-pack). You could do much worse, but itís easy to do much better.

Fine foamy head, amber colored body. Sweet malty aroma, some flower and hop tones. Flavor has a malty ale caracter with toffee notes. Flavorfull and really good for a lager!
