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.

pkbites (795) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Had this last week for the first time. Deep golden color. Wonderful nose, a really nice aroma. Pours a thick, rich, creamy head. A truely beautiful beer. Then you taste it! VERY DISAPPOINTING! Little flavor. Drinks like a light beer. Only slight hoppyness. Almost no after-taste. Watery. If this beer tasted as good as it looked it'd be the greatest American beer ever. It's not.

For what it's worth ($4.25/6-pack), this is a must buy beer on the cheap. I'd drink it in all its fizzy, sweet, chugable goodness any day over a Lite, Rock, or Silver Bullet. Perfect to keep your hand cool at the next family picnic.

I was quite surprised that this was a drinkable cheap beer ($16+/case). I was travelling through Pennsylvania and wanted to bring home a mixed case of their beers (another story - what a hassle buying beer in PA is!!) Good golden color, clean inoffensive taste. A better beer than the major megaswills.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2003
12 oz bottle, lager glass, 50 degrees F. Tall, frothy, white head diminishes slowly and sits on an amber-brown body that has lively carbonation. Losses an appearance point for the green bottle. Light bread and toasted grain malt (M); flowery and grassy hops (L); toffee aroma. Slight green bottle skunk. Lightly sweet throughout with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: avoid from the green bottle.

wrathbone (2) - Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2003 does not count
I personally like this beer very much as a cheaper, easy to drink beer. Very smooth, easy to drink, with sweetness of possiblyu pistachios and even some apples. Nothing to complicated, but good nonetheless.

While it's not as good as the premium macro lagers (Heineken, Harp, etc..) it's a great lager for the price. The last 6 I bought cost me a whopping $4.02. You can drink a ton of it for cheap. That makes it taste a lot sweeter. Thank you Yeungling!

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2003 Mild hoppy, nutty aroma (stronger/nicer aroma when served in a tulip shaped glass). Dark yellow/gold appearance. Mild hoppy, nutty flavor. This is my favorite "cheap" beer.

Sweet floral aroma is off put by something metalic. Wonderful clear copper color with a short lived head. Very smooth flavor with an intermediate maltiness. No hops or bitterness to speak of. Short finish. Far better than the standard macro offerings.

I thought this beer quite good but it had a sweet sugary taste. The head, flavor and rich color added to the overall pleasure of the experience.

This is pretty close to an "american standard", except that it doesn't have that nasty adjunct flavor, and instead has more actual malts and hops, making it much more respectable than something like Budweiser. The flavor is actually kind of pleasant and a little sweet. Nice amber color too. But still, this is nothing more than an average lager and it certainly doesn't deserve to get any ratings above 4.
