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.

A good, reasonably priced brew thatís 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 didnít want to go back to crap like Miller High Life. Enter Yuengling Traditional Lager; a beer with spicy notes of pine thatís 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 Iíll try some of dat young-ling." My curiosity was piqued; I decided to also give it a shot, and Iím 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 youíre all set for your Sunday night TV (Foxís cartoons, AMCís The Walking Dead, Showtimeís Dexter, HBOís Boardwalk Empire, etc), or to catch up on your DVRíed 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, itís an economic alternative when you still must insist upon quality in a good beer......

The color of this beer is so deceiving, since itís an amber color, you would think that this beer will not be watery, but it is watery, so I assume, and there are rumors that this brewery is using lots of caramel color or FD&C red #40 artificial food coloring to deceive their customers into thinking that theyíre drinking a richer or fuller tasting beer, which doesnít taste better than other beers that are even lower priced than Yuengling TL. The taste of this beer, well, how should I put it, if you drink Samuel Adams Boston lager and then pee it out, then your piss will probably taste like Yuengling Traditional Lager, but, oh well, to each his own.

Draft. Copper color with a small beige head. The taste was light caramel malt. Very easy to drink.

Amber, hazy. Medium body, moderate to assertive flavor, spritzy, low alcohol heat, long palate. Bitter, off-dry, Intensely hoppy, resiny, yeasty. Very interesting, a good surprize for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Out of all the domestic swillish beers, Yuengling is probably my favorite and most drinkable all around lager. Itís pretty affordable too (especially when on sale), so Iíll get it every now and then for economy beer....but mostly the porter or black and tan. This beer is just about average all-around, ok for lawnmower, beach, or day time party.

On tap. Tan with a thin head. Slight straw aroma, skunky taste. A step above other macros at its price, but certainly not to be confused with craft beer, whatever the brewers association says
