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.

Hey. Just got to Pennsylvania my first time on business, and tried this stuff cause the bottle looked nice and it was cheap and the deli guy said it was good and he seemed like he was telling the truth. He was right. This is good. It reminds me of Heineken kind of. Definitely richer than the Budís, the Millerís and what-not. I was not dissappointed. Also tried their Porter, just as cheap, but even more flavor and and even more surprised how good it was. Definitely do this beer. Its worthy of drinking lots of.

hands down the best thing out there. I stand by this stuff like I stand by the liquor store every morning waiting for it to open. So you can go ahead and drink your premium imports but if you want real quality come to Pa and sample Pottsvilleís finest

For an easy to find lager thatís a little more complex than the standards.... ainít bad! Get it on tap if you get the chance - a rarity here in VA but up in PA just about every bar has this stuff on tap. Slightly complex, very enjoyable. Even the chicks drink it.

I rated this a 1.2 on 4/7. This is a pretty common beer íround these parts. This is not a great beer but itís better than a 1.2 which I would put as Budweiser territory. This is just a below average beer. It has much more flavor than something like Bud or Rolling Rock but pales in comparison to something that is actually good.

A good, smooth lager beer with a slight hop taste. Best on tap but good in the bottle.

This beer is a bit overrated, it is ok, a better choice than the standard American Macro brews, but sill overrated.

A few nostalgia points for this one - it actually has character though it may be a cantakerous one.

I guess this is pretty good beer. Itís better on tap in Pennsylvania then from a bottle. If you like bad beer, and are forced to drink a good one Yuengling Lager might be the way to go.

Like the history but the beer is anything but historic
