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.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 This stuff does a terrible number on me the next day if I have too much of this crap at the bar. It also pisses me off when people (mostly law-school kids) who order a "lager". They dont say yuengling they just say ill have a lager. I used to like this in college but I realized a while ago that this tuff is jsut as terrible as any macro swill.

This is available just about anywhere I go. Decent hop aroma followed by a decent hop taste. Good everyday beer.

To dispel some of the myths about ’Traditional Lager’: although it’s from the oldest ’continually operating’ brewery in the country, this beer wasn’t introduced until the late 1980’s. Additionally, although this lager has an amber color to it, that’s not due to any specialty malts. It’s simply a coloring added following fermentation. It’s still a good beer, although I’d rather enjoy their somewhat hoppy ’Lord Chesterfield’.

A pretty good american lager, not as sweet as Sam Adams (good thing). But could not find anything about this beer to rave about.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2002
Clear gold. Foamy white head. Moderate carbonation. Crisp aroma. Fairly well bodied but lacking in any substantial flavors, but lemonyness. Crisp and refreshing but nothing I would choose.

slight hop presence, dry bitter finish. Not the best from the brewery. Drinkable, unexciting brew.

One of my favorites of all time. From the USA’s oldest continually operating brewery, they have had a long time to get it right. Its not a light beer buy any means and is not so heavy that its going to ruin your appetite. Very little bitterness to this beer and may not be “hopy” enough for some but all around a delightful lager.
