3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is corny fruity hops, but is weak. Falvor is fruity malt but is otherwise fairly nondeScript. Surprisingly easy to drink. Better than most macroswill. Maybe a little watery, but otherwise surprisingly good for a lager, which I don’t usually enjoy. I would have a few more of this one.

Man this has caught on like wild fire! A good lager to put that fire out on a hot summer day without mortgaging the house!I must rate it a notch below Sam Adams though certainly way above those carbonated urine offerings. Can’t compete with the elites yet carries enough color, taste and body for a quick solid quencher.

Fantastic widespread lager. Does not have much of the carbonated gaseous pain that many other big time lagers have. Nice spiciness beneath, and a full flavor. Color is also very attractive for a bar.

This is bullshit to drink after having Old Rasputin Stout. It is extremely thin and like water.

This is a great beer anytime - having spent years drinking Ausralian beer, this is an easy transition. Hard to find other mass market beers in Florida that compete for flavor.

The "national beer of the Susquehanna Valley". The first non-Bud-type beer I ever had, so I am partial to this local favorite. Any time of the year, in any weather, with any meal, a cold "Lager" [you don’t even have to say the "Yuengling" part when ordering] goes down great. The perfect beer to have with some nice hot nasty kamikaze wings.

Had this on draught in Manhattan, New York. This beer is everywhere, upstate, in the city, practically everywhere ... personally, I didn’t get a whole lot out of it. Not a bad lager, though. Innexpensive and drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 A nice amber beer. small hops aroma and taste. A great beer for the price. It’s better on tap than in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wonderfully straightfoward and delicious-tasting lager. A hopsy concoction. Crisp and refreshing yet with a fair amount of balls. Sure it may be middle of the road, but it is a road paved by alcoholics!

I would consider this in the same lines with any other macrobrew unfortunately.
I could maybe have one after a day in the sun, but really would not go out of my way for one.
