An iconic American lager famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor - with a roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character.

My experience with this beer has been a love / hate relationship. When I first had it, I liked it. Then there was a period when I absolutely despised it. Towards my final years in college, it became the standard pitcher to get at bars, and my fondness for it has returned. Much tastier then any of the other pale lagers out there. The aftertaste and body are just different from all the other commercial brews. Decent stuff.

I have to admit that I’m biased on this one, as it’s the "Beer of my College Days." So don’t take these numbers too seriously, because they’re all tainted with love. Except the palate number. Cause honestly, it’s not THAT great a beer. :)

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 I can not believe that it has taken me this long to get around to rating this beer. My father and I found this beer a little over a decade ago. It has been his beer of choice since then. For me it remains the best beer that I can generally find in most restaurants that do not have good selection. Better than your typical macro swill, but still lacking in character to the decent micros out there. The bottle I rated today was green - a minor sin to be sure. The beer poured a medium amber color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet and lightly malty. The flavor is sweet, lightly malty and has a hint of nut. The finish is a bit sour and tangy which is a minor detraction for the beer. Overall it is drinkable and at least in PA it is widely available. If a restaurant has nothing as good or better than Yuengling traditional lager I just avoid getting beer there. Sadly for all the positives the enduring image of Yuengling for me is when my German roomate found this in our fridge and could not stop laughing for days. Evidently Yuengling is German for "male virgin". Sigh.

Deep golden colour, with a thick white head. Malty aroma, caramel, some noble hop aroma as well. Flavour is well balanced, caramel sweetness nicely balanced by floral hoppiness. A nice surprise.

Nice amber color with a decent white head. Good flavor and palate especialy for the style. Nice mildly bitter finish.

I have this beer on tap at home now, and I enjoy every single glass. Just an overall nicely crafted beer, good for mixed food or just a beer alone.

I picked this up on a trip to the east coast as a curiosity mostly, and was pleasantly surprised. As far as American mass produced lagers go, I can’t think of a better one. However, that does make it the cream floating on top of a pretty rancid pint of milk.

Pours golden yellow, with a mild aroma. Taste is slightly bitter and not too distinguished, but still rather clean with a fizzy body. I actually was surprised this is listed as a pale lager, for it has more flavor than most other representatives of the style. However, Yuenglin’s Black and Tan is still far superior.

Clear yellow-amber. Soft, fluffy white head. Grainy cooked corn aroma . Very light, watery feel. Bland flavour w/ notes of plastic & cooked corn.

A good solid American brew coming out of Pottsville PA. For a mass produced beer this is absolutly excellent. Goood head and with a redishm amber color a smooth finishing taste. Much repect to the makers of Yuengling since 1829.
