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.

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..

Amber in color with a thin off-white head that leaves barely any lace. Barely any hops. It was comparable to drinking colored water. It stayed well-carbonated, which may have been its only good attribute...besides its color, which is nice as well. I used to drink this beer a lot....but I now remember why I stopped.

This was one of the few "new" beers to be found in Florida panhandle liquor/beer stores. Just your basic everyday lager, with a touch of floral hoppiness and a refreshing character. Another decent campfire beer for sipping in between tastes of a few belgians (from a plastic glass, I must add).

Practically no head on this beer. Also no carbonation. A very full-bodied, amber appearance. I have to say that yuengling is great. Yuengling light makes my day too.

I think this beer is a great mix of taste and affordability. It won't blow you away, but is a solid drinkable lager that can readily be found from Northern NJ through Central PA through Northern VA. Pick up a 6 pack and toss a few back.

Just a solid good drinking beer. If you find yourself in a bar, especially NJ, and they have a limited beer menu, this is a solid choice. Great taste, chuggability and keeps you going back for more. A good beer!

For some reason this brew reminded me alot of Killians Irish Red. Amber color doesnt have a very malty taste. very mild taste not too strong and not too weak. Overall an pretty good brew.

Not a bad guzzling beer. Certainly better than most macros in its league. Nice amber color distinguishes it, creamy head. Very mild aroma and flavor. Refreshing.

Nice beer. Good lager. fresh. Amber in color. Little or no hop presence. It was mild tasting. Clean malty flavor. Ok.

I hate lagers. I repeat - I hate lagers. That being said, I do like Yuengling for what it is. It's a decent, inexpensive, every-day kind of beer. Overall, it's not my style (I prefer ales), so it's a little crisp for my taste. However, so far it's my favorite of the lagers. Pours a moderate amber color, with some head; doesn't last long though. Aroma's not great, in fact it's pretty funky; mild corn and alcohol; unexpected from an amber beer. Taste is light (again unexpected from an amber) and a little hoppy. Lacing? Fuggetaboutit. It does get a bit sticky in the mouth once you've had a couple. Still a good one to keep in the fridge on a regular basis, although not something with which to treat yourself.
