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.

Probably one of the best "mass-produced" beers available. Always has a good poor, with a nice dark appearance to it.

Poured a 12oz can into a Samuel Adams Glass. Appearance: Awesome copper/orange hue. It is clear with carbonation visible. Pours a nice 2 finger white, soapy head that disappears rather quickly The beer leaves minor lacing. Smell: Some slight caramel, Slight sweet malt nothing strong. Something that I describe as a Yuengling smell I guess its some kind of adjunct. . Taste: This is how a lager should taste like. very clean, refreshing with some sweet malt, caramel and toffee. Could use a bit more hops to take it to the next level. Very good flavors from a brewer that’s been doing this since 1829! Drinkability: Beer is very easy drinking its only 4.4% ABV so that is understandable but when you think of the flavor its seems it should have around 5.5%. Its drinks like a light beer with full beer flavor. For sure a sessionable beer. when you think of the price I don’t know it doesn’t outperform the BMC beers. A great option from America’s oldest brewery,

pours a clear reddish brown. Aroma is of light caramel and very earthy. Flavor is sweet with a very clean finish. The flavor is light and lacks much complexity but it works with the style.

Very nice initial barley aroma. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Very good for style. Finishes slightly crisp. Nice barley profile. Tap at Blackfinn, stole a couple sips from a buddy’s glass.

ThirstyBird (1564) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a small light head. The smell is biscuity malt, fruit with a touch of caramel. The taste is as it smells but the caramel is more pronounced. Light+ body with prickly carbonation. A pretty boring brew.

Pretty much the best macro-lager (?) produced in the Mid-Atlantic, Yuengling amber lager is the beer that I want to "hydrate" with the next time i attempt to set my personal best in a Beer Mile race…. I know it will help me improve on my Miller High Life elapsed time significantly.

Ratman197 (9800) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Green bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness and light toasted malt. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread and light earthiness with a smooth finish.

Its never going to be rated highly, but for a Pale Lager, this is outstanding. Lovely pale caramel color, crisp looking, nice carbonation. If the macro brewers could make something that looks this good, then we’d all be drinking Budweiser....oh wait, nevermind.

12oz bottle while golfing. Sort of a golden amber color. Aroma of light fresh hops and malts. Taste is bland and not exciting. A little hop presence but mostly watery.
