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.

What a joy to find in cans. The perfect lager to bring to places where bottles are not allowed. Nothing too special, just a decent drinking, slightly mass-produced lager. The can will leave the signature metallic flavor, but the timid maltiness makes you forget it. Crisp finish.

Sandy red color. A smooth drinker. Better than the Buds of the world.

Yeah, I’d have to say this is about as good of an acceable American beer you can get. Nice flavor and goes down easy. Forget Bud as king of beer.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 After drinking so many quality ales, I am slowly discovering that it takes a lot to impress me in a lager. Very bland and ordinary, this beer makes me think of the days of quarters and other drinking games. The best thing you can say is that this beer is smooth. The only aftertaste is when you belch.

Not bad... not great; mild hops yes, slight maltiness... smooth, crisp and refreshing

If Yeungling is considered a Macrobrew, then it is among the best AMERICAN macrobrews around. Has a faint hop, a little maltiness, no real distinctive flavors that would draw me to it if someone described it to me. Inexpensive, good beer for the common tongue.

Not bad at all. Much better than their dark beers, which have a wierd, sour/bitter flavor. Just a basic clean lager...not exciting, but not bad. Reminds me of the old German American Cincinnati beers I cut my teeth on, like Christian Moerlein and Hudy Gold. No skunkiness present in my sample. While I have had skunky beer from a clear bottle on occasion (Hobgoblin), I think that the negative effects of green bottles are vastly overrated.
