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.

Yuengling long existed as a regional brewer, but in 1987, they re-introduced Traditional Lager, which has become their flagship brand, usually just called "Lager." To put this beer in perspective, it’s really not a "craft beer," nor is it intended to be. It uses adjunct and would fall in line with macro swill on the profile scale, checking in at 4.6 percent ABV, 142 calories and only around 13-15 IBUs. It IS, however, a far cry from typical domestic crap. Yuengling has a nice copper color, as they do throw a little caramalt in the mash. There’s a hint of sweetness in the nose and a slight caramel aroma lingers as it rolls down the gullet. Surprisingly, it has pretty good body for an American lager. It finishes clean with only the faintest whiff of any hop content. It gives a sense of a classic European lager, but without the fuller mouthfeel or protein body of the continental 2-row malt. It actually reminds me a bit of the pre-takeover Stroh’s when it was caramelized in the direct fire kettle, but with a little more body. It does have flavor, however, and that is not the norm for the typical "big brewer" product. Regardless, this is a wonderful session brew for a large American brewery and a domestic lager, particularly in the cold longneck bottle on a warm summer day. Serving type: bottle

Full disclosure I had a Dogfish Head prior so its not a fair game for me to rate this lager after the greatest IPA on the market. On to this lager. I taste hints of bread paired to stainless steel. Its a clean and light beer but has notes of nut at the end. The corn used gives this beer an enjoyable palate the metal taste takes a point off.

This lager poured a golden Amber colour with a creamy, off white head. Scents include malt, dough and a little hay. First swig was smooth but watery. Flavours of honey malts and dough most prominent. Finish is all malt with a very thin mouthfeel...

Pours golden amber with a fluffy head. Aroma is richly bready, grainy. Taste starts bready, nice, then a bite that feels more like the alcohol than like hops.

Pours a light amber. Isn’t anything truly special. The palate is somewhat bland. It’s a cheaper staple beer suitable for cookouts, etc.

I forgot I never rated this. Some light Malts but otherwise mediocrity incarnate. Really.

sudomorph (944) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
12oz can. Pours a clear caramel with a thin head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma has hints of sweet grain, and faint glances of traditional hops. Taste is balanced and mild. Grains, traditional spicy/earthy hops, and a short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall very standard and non offensive. Not that good but drinkable by all.
