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......

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.

stevoj (3771) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2016
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.

It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a bright yellow colored body with very good clarity and visible carbonation rushing up to bright white head. The head is light and soapy. It quickly settled down to a wispy thin film covering. Smell: The aroma is light and cereal like with a faint floral hops in the background. Taste / Palate: The flavor is light and clean. It’s has cereal and light grain like notes with a light floral and grassy hay like hops. It feels light and refreshing with balanced carbonation.

I have never run into this until my visit to Florida, though I’ve heard all about it dating back to high school history class. Fun to finally try. Twist off green bottle at the hotel. Darker in color. Cool, fresh, refreshing lager with a hint of sweet malt. A good cool down beer, and much preferred over the competition.

Af at være Amerikas ældste bryggeri må man forvente de har lært at brygge øl. Men.... Deres lager er lettere sur i det, næsten ingen humle, og så er der ikke den smag af korn eller frugt som der sommetider er i lager-øl.

May 10, 2016 - can at SeaWorld. Seemed like an amber pour with nice amount of head that lasted for a bit. Aroma and taste of grain, malt and mild bitterness.
