UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 (draft) Clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is mildly sweet and floral. Taste is medium sweet, floral but not actually bitter. Light/medium body. Pleasant simple beer.

Maybe it’s the Philly nostalgia, but this beer is a standard.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 A good, dependable lager for everyday drinking. Light brown color. Good taste balance but best cold. Good carbonation. Good value.

The state beer of Pennsylvania. Plain smell, but good medium amber color. Slight, very slight, bitterness noted, but it gives it a much needed kick. Has a good thickness that seperates it from macros. With the price and availability (in PA, that is), it does exactly what it’s supposed to, be an affordable alternative to the big macros.

4/12/01: Original rating 0.8. After struggling through one of these this evening i feel that i am compelled to rerate it. ’Lager’, as most people in Pennsylvania call it, for i personally believe many of them are unaware any other beers exist, is quite possibly the most overrated beer on this site I.M.H.O. In the bottle the beer looks like water with amber food coloring added to it. I gave this a 2 for appearance because i like amber better than pale, piss yellow. When poured there is a small white head that quickly disappears and you are left with a glass of what appears to be amber water. Emanating from the glass and bottle are lovely odors of what appears to be laundry detergent. Tasting the beer reveals (Surprise!!) a lovely flavor of soap, reminding me oftimes in grade school when i cursed at the teacher. Just as annoying as the soap flavor is the persistent metallic flavor forming of the back of my tongue which is really pissing me off. I am left feeling empty, as if i just swallowed water straight out of the lower Schuykill. No recognizable malts, no hops whatsoever. I find this to be just another run of the mill piss poor lager, and dare i say it, i might actually drink a Bud (and i HATE Bud) before i drink another one of these. Yuengling does make some good beers, the Porter and Black and Tan, but this lager can’t compete with the likes of Victory or Stegmaier.
