This is an awesomely(yes awesomely) smooth beer that I think has a terrific flavor. Canít say Iíve had a better mainstream lager.

Bottle: This is one of the best widespread lagers Iíve tasted. Amber in color with a small white head. Aroma has corn, fruit, hops, and spice. Flavor: spice, light fruit, toast, light malt. Very nice lager that is nice to drink at cooler temperatures that I would drink most beers. Refreshing.

Had this on tap while watching some live bands at Arleneís Grocery in Manhattan. Thanks to Brian for the hookup. Nose of spice and toasted malt with a hint of wine. The brew is a clear amber and has a quickly diminishing white frothy head that leaves virtually no lacing. This lager has mad flavor for the style; spicy, fruity, and toasty. The light body is creamy and soft, and feels chalky at the finish. A wicked lager to be sure.

A very popular beer here at ASU. It good but way over rated. A bit dark with a tan head.

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 donít 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. Canít 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 donít even have to say the "Yuengling" part when ordering] goes down great. The perfect beer to have with some nice hot nasty kamikaze wings.
