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.

A great beer at a great price and brewed in nearby PA...a local place by me serves a 5 dollar wings and Yuengling special....best idea ever.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 This is my #1 one beer of choice. A very good lager and it is very easy to drink. Smooth taste. Great beer.

A good one at the end of a long day, it goes down good when it's ice cold (the beer) and hot (outside). Nothing special in any shape way or form. Better than the macros......

A free bottle at a reception in PA. Blah. Only, it is Pennsylvania blah. Gassy and hollow. At least, not offensive.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUN 9, 2003
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date. Poured out a dark shade of copper, with slight red highlights. Fast fading head that left a ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass. Aromas mostly of malts, with strong bread notes as well. No discernable hop aromas or flavors to it. Flavorful, and downright tasty. Kind of dark for a lager though. A pretty good local beer in my book.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 Quart Bottle (The store was out of 6-packs). Suprisingly has resisted urge to lighten up their flagship so it looks and taste more like megabrewed crap. Color is certainly amber (again, no p--- yellow A/B color), kicks up a frothy head. Sweet malty taste, almost roasty caramel, and trace of flavoring hops. Surprising yeast taste, may turn off some people. Could the big bottle have been old? Still, an interesting catch. Had the whole quart and 3 Lord Chesterfields and didn't feel a thing. Will try to set this as my baseline for a "not great-not terrible" beer (and I've now sampled from America's two oldest family breweries, Yuengling and Schells. Who's third oldest?).

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2003
Bavarian style with a medium head, brownish color and a surprisingly deep aroma. It has a good balance between bitterness and sweetness; can kill thirst and tease the taste buds simultaneously. But it looks nothing like amber. It's brown!

Ummmm....yeah. I dunno. Don't see much of this as far north as NH, I forgot where I got this one. Not a bad beer by any means, just sorta bland and normal. Better than most of the big name beers.

More of a Chesterfield man myself. After a long day in a suit I was anxious for liquid relief. Okay, I admit I was drinking at the reception, but there was a visit with a great aunt after it. Too sweet for my taste. Just like I remembered it - watery, sweet, of tasting, just in the realm of palatable, but not by far. So glad to be done with it, out the door and off to better fare.
