A good, reasonably priced brew that’s increasing in availability.
I first discovered Yuengling in early 2007; I was between jobs at the time and on a budget, so I had to get something affordable, yet I didn’t want to go back to crap like Miller High Life.
Enter Yuengling Traditional Lager; a beer with spicy notes of pine that’s of a reasonably high quality.
I remember that night as if it were yesterday; I was at the Publix on hwy 150 in Hoover, and some black lady was looking for some beer, and noticed a 12-pack of Yuengling bottles; she said, "I think I’ll try some of dat young-ling."
My curiosity was piqued; I decided to also give it a shot, and I’m glad I did.
I prefer this beer in cans as opposed to bottles, as it can go bad in bottles much quicker; there are two gas stations about 3 minutes from where I live that both carry it in 12-packs of cans; just get you one of them, and some chips & dip (with a steak to cook later) and you’re all set for your Sunday night TV (Fox’s cartoons, AMC’s The Walking Dead, Showtime’s Dexter, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, etc), or to catch up on your DVR’ed episodes of Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, American Horror Story Asylum, Star Trek reruns, etc.
All in all, it’s an economic alternative when you still must insist upon quality in a good beer......

Bottle. Actually quite awesome for what it is. Smooth, balanced, traditional. For a lager with this old of tradition it's quite impressive.

This is a wonderfully traditional beer. It is not meant to be the highest quality beer, but to be the reasonably priced blue collar beer. Much better on tap than in the bottle, however this is true for most beers. If I had my pick this is what I will usually go for.
On another note, some of these reviews seem to be for the light version and not the original lager. The clear straw color is Yuengling light, not the lager. The lager pours a darker caramel color

En fin pilsner lidt som en clasic řl type. Fin smag uden for meget bitterhed.

After 8 hours of driving we finally arrived at the hotel and they had this on tap. Rating might be off because it is free.

Bottle (green) - Pours medium amber, white head. Aroma of malt, slightly skunky. Biscuit. Lightly hopped. Malt presence. More like an amber/Vienna.

0,33 bottle from a gas station. - Generic malty aroma, slightly spicy hops. It has a good, well balanced pilsner flavor, more malt than the rest of the american lagers. Good, but not as good as most european lagers.

Bottled. A pretty decent lager. Amber color with white lacing. Not too wheaty or malty. A good macro.

Wedding reception at Spring Manor winery. More malty than your traditional pale lager, closer to a Vienna. Amber body, sweet malt nose. Taste is more sweetness, possibly due to some adjuncts. Not horrible, but a bit cloying.

Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. Clear copper with white head that is pristine and leaves full lacing. Crisp malt and harsh bitter finish.
