Not bad but this beer sure does have a lot of hype. It’s advertised as an amber, which I guess I could see as it had a heavier malt presence than most pale lagers. Faint malty aroma that also had semblance of adjuncts. Copper was light amber. Average mouth feel with high carbonation. Flavor was unexciting. Base malts with little hops taste. A step above a Bud. Glad I tried it and easy with food.

I had this at Harry Buffalo. Pours a amber with a white head. Taste sweet, Carmel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Pours an amber color with a white frothy head with some lacing. Aroma is typical kind of pale lager. Definitely not as bad as some of the other offenders. Fairly refreshing, and doesn’t have the same overwhelming wet cardboard aroma and flat taste. Basically my go-to macro.

Understand at $7 a 6 this is the best bang for your buck lager. Crisp easy, slightly skunky on the nose but not much at all in the taste of the beer itself. Generic Lager, crisp finish, plain taste of pale malts with light hops. Doesn’t give bad hangover like Bud as its made of Barley and Hops instead of Rice and Corn. America’s oldest brewery and still family owned, please support Yuengling. Maybe it gets over-hyped sure but it is not a soulless corporation like In-Bev or Miller-Coors. I’d rate it better than Sam Adams Lager but put it up against Bud, Coors and Miller (all the same price) and it blows them out of the water. Support this quality American product if you want something easy drinking cheap and good and please stop shitting on it because its not Founders KBS and your Granddad acts like it is.

DeanF (1714) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma of weak malts. Has an okay copper body with a fast dying head. Flavour is fruity malts and nothing else. Watery on the mouth. an okay darker beer.

Yeast and sweetish malt aroma. Pours clear dark honey gold with a thick off white head that lasts a good while leaving a good amount of lacing. Very light. Thin mouthfeel. Papery finish. A little bit of an edge. I don’t see what all the fuss is about. It just tastes like any number of cheap beers.

firstsip (414) - Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Tap. Sort of a dark amber. Some okay head. A good breadiness with a slight banana yeast quality. Not the insane beer I’ve heard hyped by east coasters over the years, but definitely one I wouldn’t mind drinking if it was the only option besides Bud Light.

DocJitsu (912) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a clear amber-golden color with a quickly dissipating light tan, fizzy head. Toasty grain notes, some fruitiness, and toffee. Medium-bodied, somewhat creamy texture, with some moderate crispness. The aromas get expressed in the flavors, except that the fruitiness comes through more prominently.

A pale lager that kind of actually resembles a beer! Decent body, pour, & aroma. It actually isn’t watered down but certainly doesn’t carry a flavor explosion. It’s passable & that’s more than I can say about the majority of this style!

24oz ghetto can. Clear bronze color with ivory head. Caramel, toast, sulfur, oil refinery aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Weak sweet caramel, toast, malty flavors with a lightly drying bitter finish___it is what it is.....
