Amber colored pour. Small off-white head. Not much in the way of lacing. Malty aroma. Malty taste. Not much else to say. Pretty good as far as American lagers go.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can in DC. Copper pour with a small head. The nose is fairly sedate. Toasted grain, a bit of honey. Bread. The taste is lightly sweet. Apple and caramel candy. Dry finish. Somewhat watery. Fairly one-dimensional, though there’s nothing wrong with this. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not bad for what it is.

Nice amber color, malty/ hoppy aroma. Taste is malty, with a watery finish. By far one of the best "big" american beers.

Yuengling brews a lager with a little color. The body is maltier than the Buds and Millers of the market. The beer is reminiscent of a kit that might be sold to a homebrewer for their first attempt. Nothing bad, nothing remarkable, okay with bar food.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Nice amber color, decent head and lace. Taste has a corn like taste but it has a lot of rich flavor. Aroma is light with a caramel corn note. Not bad for a monster beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Nice amber color, decent head that dissipates fairly quickly, medium-body, toasty caramel malt. Very good and flavorful for a macro-brewery and for the price. Much better than the big names, just below your average micro breweries.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Remember drinking this in my youth when I grew up in NY. Of course during a Florida trip it’s on tap everywhere. Sort of whale for the west coast I guess. Not a great beer but a ton of east coast transplants certainly reminiscent over it. Had it poured at a couple of beach bars while visiting the Space Coast. Poured reddish amber. Some skunky tones along with grains. Hardly any bitterness. Although as it warmed I certainly picked up some buttered caramel diacetyl notes. Could this be mistreatment of the lines? Well, it is what it is.

Yuengling Traditional Lager is an ok macrobrew appropriate for certain situations, but definitely not on the craft beer scale. Well, here it goes anyway No real aroma to speak of. Pale golden color with a fizzy head that dissipates pretty quickly. Decent blend of hop and malt flavor, but it just doesn’t excite the taste buds and the finish is pretty clean. Yuengling might be a good choice for drinking at the beach or at parties where the hosts don’t know better, but definitely not something to be coveted. Update: This one really didn’t sit well in my stomach.
