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.

This is a simple, but very good beer. Very easy to drink. And the best thing about it is it's cheap. I can get a 12 pack bottle for probably 8 or 9 bucks and a 24 can pack for 15. For that price, it is great for a night when you wanna drink a lot cheaply but dont want to drink a lot of bad beer. A great smooth lager.

Light amber/copper colored, thin quickly diminishing head. Light malt, grainy aroma with hint of hops. Medium bobied, fairly fizzy, not to clean but smooth and nice malt flavors not a world class brew but I will take it over almost anything I can get in the supermarket

Pleasant, smooth, amber beer. It tastes slightly sweet and smoky, with clear malt flavors. It's much more acidic on tap than in the bottle.

manshow (8) - Spokane, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2004 does not count
A nice amber color wrapped in the nice green bottle. Slightly off white and a small head. The initial taste may be slightly bitter. The overall flavor is tastefully sweet. This may be one of the best lagers out there for the price. Watch out Bud, Miller and Coors here comes a new competator in a class of its own. No longer do lagers have to be blonde and watered down. Overall there is not much if any at all better than Yuengling's smooth Traditional Lager.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - APR 7, 2004
Medium gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malty, grainy and sweet. A medium bodied lager. Malts are biscuity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Well balanced. No adjuncts noted. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Nice lager, perhaps a bit fizzy and over carbonated. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Probably the best among ultra-cheap ($7/12-pack) beers. Vastly superior to Bud/Coors, and only slightly more expensive. I've got nothing to say about it that hasn't been said below; it's just a good middle-of-the-road lager: mild and drinkable, a little bit sweet, but not as watery as other beers in its price range. A party favorite around here.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2004
Strong malt aroma more European than American, very clear amber color, nice up front sweet malty taste, maybe a little thin and not to carbonated, fuller and sweeter than a macro

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Green bottle with twist off cap. Copper colored brew with no head, reeks of corn. Goes down okay, but still lots of corn flavor and unpleasantly sweet.

I've been drinking Dick Yuengling's beer since college (Zeno's in State College, PA, used to have $2.00 pitchers of lager and porter circa 1990) and it seems fitting to break my 100 review cherry with this beer. I actually got Dick to sign a poster for me in college, and he was one hell of a nice guy. I have always liked this beer, and it is encouraging for me to find out that it is taking off rapidly, expanding down the East Coast to Florida. On to the review. This beer pours light amber, with a medium head. The taste is slightly malty, slightly sweet. It's like a hybrid amber/golden ale, even though it is a lager. The finish is smooth. I agree about the skunk factor. Yuengling still uses a lot of green bottles (they use brown also, but brown costs a little more). In this day and age, there is no excuse for using green bottles, and that is my only real complaint with this beer (the same complaint I have about Pilsner Urquell). If you sample it, buy it in the heavy cardboard case (brown bottles). As a bonus, this beer continues to be one of the more affordable good beers in the world, and it kicks the shit out of Coors, Miller, and Budweiser. Try it....I guarantee you'll like it. It's one of the beers I have when I'm having more than one. Thanks for reading, and I'll see y'all at 200. DocLock

Slighly better than the average american lager, it still looks better than it tastes. It has a bigger body and maltier taste than most of its ilk. Now if it only had some hops..
