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.

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.

My beer distributor in NY had me buy some of this for him when I went to Pa. I had to try it to see what was so special. The answer was nothing. First...I HATE CLEAR BOTTLES...they make for skunky beer if exposed to the light. Second, this beer was only a step above Budweiser...which isn’t good. No malt or hop flavor. Just your typical cheap beer.

Better than most majors, but still only slighty above average.

Nothing better than average, and that is a stretch. This beer is definatly overrated. The aromaa is skunky the head is minimal and the flavor is in the same category as all of the macro lagers.

From bear pong to baseball games to the dinner table, this is one of the most drinkable and afordable american lagers. Light enough to spend your night with a case of it, yet satisfying enough to enjoy just one glass.... I love this beer!

Almost perfect amber hue. Good pouring lager with a nice malty head. Smooth, crisp, clear, consise, yet not overly dominating. Perfect at a baseball game at a barbeque or at a tailgate. Very drinkable and excellent with either steak or fish. Good for the ladies who like a nice beer that’s not too heavy or dark.
