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.

Damn, this stuff is no good. Light and weak on all counts. Very similar to Bud, which is not mondo or radical on any way. Not my cup oí tea. I shy away from beer that looks like pee.

Medium golden body, crystal clear, small head, malty nose. Fairly watery, malt-accented, much like a German helles, albeit not a really good one. I had a college buddy who hailed from Pottsville, and he didnít like beer. I doubt that this beer was the reason, since itís a decent brew, but itís not my kind of thing.

Smells like sweet shredded cardboard. Nice amber color and low tight head. Odd taste with a spicy end, but not really a hop bitterness. Medium body, cream mouth feel. Balance is not convincing.

light malt nose. Nice amber color with a little head. Malty, but also like honey flavor. Kicks on the top of the tongue. Average, but what a honking squared bottle.

I just want to love Yuengling. Itís from Pennsylvania (as am I). Itís from the United Statesí oldest brewery. It has an almost unspellable, Asian-esque name. I canít love it though. I donít hate it. I donít dislike it. Much better from the tap than in a bottle. Here in Pittsburgh youíll often see a sale on the stuff, say $17/case. Spend the extra three bucks on Sam Adams Boston Lager or Penn Pilsner/Gold. Itís a ho-hum beer.

A nice smooth brew, pefect when icy cold. much better on tap than out of the bottle. Ordinary but satisfying

This isnít the greatest beer but when youíre sitting with friends this is one that fits the moment. Good crisp taste. Mild aftertaste. ;)

Not great. Better than watery light beer. Almost no body. No hop presence at all.
