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.

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......

On tap, can, bottle everywhere. This is the pride of American macros. Dissipating white head, taste is very unoffensive and easy drinking, caramel, a little toasty, nothing special but leaves little to be desired for what it is. An old reliable and like I said, pretty clearly above any American macro.

Can. Decent lager. Nothing much special about it, but when I was in the US this was an easy to drink, cheap quencher. Malty in taste, mildly bitterish. Not too watery. Like said, nothing that special, but at least better than all the ’light’ cr*p that is served.

Poured from a bottle into a pub glass. Taste is malty caramel with a very average, non-offensive impression. It may be a macro, but I have to say, it’s certainly not a bad macro. I’ve had a few craft beers worse than Yuengling.

A great anytime beer. Very drinkable. Refreshing, but not too light. Great in bottles, even better on tap if you are in Eastern/Central PA (home to the original brewery).

I’ll never stop liking Yuengling as a good, inexpensive beer. It was my go-to in college before I started discovering craft beer, and it remains a beer I’ll drink when it’s available. However, it doesn’t taste nearly as good as it used to, and it’s not good in cans. At all.

Claves77 (189) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Great caramel color, medium carbonation, light leave head in point glass poured from a12oz can. Traditional lager smell with slight sweetness. Good flavor for inexpensive beer. Palate weakens and develops some off flavors. Easy to drink..

Just far more drinkable than 80 or 90% if the other beers available, All the Micro brewery/IPA crap the snobs been pushing really don’t compare. Somebody should make these beer snobs take a test before they are permitted to post, then again maybe I wouldn’t be able to post here..... This beer has a full robust flavor with no watered down soft drink flavor like the mainstream top 5 producers. Get a grip snobs you lost your way, the reason we drink beer is to take the edge off the daily grind and not break our bank. Now I will return to drinking my 10 dollar a 6 pack Guinness Stout I was in the mood for tonight!!!!

Robe ambrée et jolie mousse qui ne tient pas. Arômes biscuit et houblon. Goût céréales et fruits jaunes. Final fruits confits. Assez longue en bouche. Pas mal pour une lager.

This is an easy beer to drink. Very light on the palate. Has a strong floral after taste though that taste rather perfume like in my opinion. An easy beer to session though, a 6 pack will go quick if you’re a regular beer drinker.

Pours clear amber with a quick white head. Nose is weak with just a hint of sweetnes and hops. Flavor is similar but slightly richer and more bready. For a cheap lager it does the job.
