COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Amber color, crystal clear small head. Nose is weakly malty, body is thin flavor is boring.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Clear red amber colour with no head, malty sweet in the nose but that funk lager flavour I just dont like.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
America's Oldest Brewery? Hmm. Stinker. Amber color with weak white head. Grainy, grassy aroma. Thin body and a watery, skunky taste. Totally forgetable.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Hands down the best American beer I've had and my favourite. It has a complexity in its palate that only deepens with familiarity and nostalgia and will not most likely be fully appreciated or experienced with the first try. Yuengling is a classic and one of my favourite beers from the world over - not just America.

In the Pennsylvania and New Jersey area, can't be beat for price vs quality. The beer I usually drink when out at bars.

fraternie (848) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Nice amber colored body, darker than your normal macro lager. Some caramel and hops in the aroma. Light bodied and lacking flavor overall, but some notes of caramel and a subtle malt nose gets this one more points than Bud.

LordHedgehog (144) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Pushes the borderline between macroswill and microbrewery. Mix a Bug Light with a high-quality brew, and I'd expect it to taste like this. Probably good to give as gifts to friends that haven't yet disocvered beer beyond BMC, but don't bother buying it for yourself.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 This pours a decent looking pale amber color. It has a small, fake-looking white head. The nose is weak, but pleasantly grassy. The tastes are very grassy, earthen, natural, and watery, but they are strangely also syrupy and lightly acidic. This fits most any low budget occasion, and it HAS, believe me, - keg after keg - to varying degrees of satisfaction.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2004
Draught, at Swifts, East 4th St, New York. </br> Amber with a fine, shiny, white head. Corn syrup aroma and bitter hop flavour. Ok enough.
