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.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Undrinkable macro clone. Oh, and for what it's worth...purchased cold and seemingly fresh in a bomber-size brown bottle.

Another favorite of mine in the Yuengling family. Got it for $7.99, downed 3 of them last night and was pleasantly buzzing. Good stuff for cheap.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Golden amber color, poors a big head that disipated quickly, lots of carbonation. Weak boring aroma not much goin on. Taste is suprisingly not bad, you can tell they used both hops and malt, unlike many lagers. A touch of piney citrus flavor. Certainly beter than most lagers, but still not much to speak of.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2003
Off white head on a light amber body and brilliant clarity. Aroma of caramel and grainy malt, and very little hop; nothing too extraordinary. Also very clean with no fruitiness. There is a slight hint of corn in the aroma as it warms. Malty sweet at first sip w/a little graininess and very little caramel. Balanced toward maltiness at the start but finishes slightly bitter in the aftertaste with some hop flavor, but overall nothing fantastic. Just the same consistent output from Yeungling with their traditional lager. Pretty clean, good for warm spring/summer nights on the porch if you don't want something a little heavier flavor wise. Body is light with a dry mouthfeel and higher carbonation. Again, good summtime lawnmower beer.

Quite a following for a local beer. Still far better than Rolling Rock and IC Light.

This is a very average American brewed Lager. Not one that I would recommend, there is too much missing.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2003
Hazy straw body ith a thin tight white head. Corn, lots. Some cereal grains, and dry barley. Clean & light, a hint of vanilla on the finish. Much better off tap then out of the bottle. the mouthfeel improves drastically.

Love the way you can ask for "a lager" at a bar in Philadelphia and they know you mean this. Dry and refreshing. Where's my cheese steak?

Amber color. Very light and watery, pretty dry; nothing else to mention about it.

A great beer to have a few of on a hot summer day. And at $9 for 12, it's one of the cheapest good beers around.
