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.

Very light clean and crisp, very easy to drink. The aftertaste is what makes this beer loose a few points, not horrible by any means but it could be a little better.

On Tap at Old Chicago, Clarksville, TN. I have always heard good things about this beer. I was impressed, yet let down. This would make a great daily drinking beer, but I think that the hype got to me and that is why I was disappointed.

Truly one of my favorite lagers. Grew up with this in the fridge and now that its available in SC, I donít have to stock up everytime drive through PA.

Very refreshing and tastier than the average inexpensive lager. Light flavor, a bit malty. Palate and aroma are not quite impressive.

Yuengling traditional is always a pleasing beer. Perfect with wings and burgers. Nice malt with a touch of hop. The nose has a slight hop nose. Color is nice rich amber.

Great Regional beer. Happy to have in abundance in VA. Nice dark caramel color, foamy head. Sure looks great when poured. Hard to believe itís 15 bucks a case!! Goes down smooth. Can drink several while watching football and munching nachos. Tasty, refreshing, easy drinking lager. Perfect on a summer day after mowing the lawn. I know itís not fancy....and thatís why I love it. Definitely my go-to beer over any BMC. Highly recommend.

Poured a 12oz can into a Samuel Adams Glass. Appearance: Awesome copper/orange hue. It is clear with carbonation visible. Pours a nice 2 finger white, soapy head that disappears rather quickly The beer leaves minor lacing. Smell: Some slight caramel, Slight sweet malt nothing strong. Something that I describe as a Yuengling smell I guess its some kind of adjunct. . Taste: This is how a lager should taste like. very clean, refreshing with some sweet malt, caramel and toffee. Could use a bit more hops to take it to the next level. Very good flavors from a brewer thatís been doing this since 1829! Drinkability: Beer is very easy drinking its only 4.4% ABV so that is understandable but when you think of the flavor its seems it should have around 5.5%. Its drinks like a light beer with full beer flavor. For sure a sessionable beer. when you think of the price I donít know it doesnít outperform the BMC beers. A great option from Americaís oldest brewery,

A silky smooth beer with just the right texture.....stronger than a regular "macro" beer with flavor, not as sweet as Budweiser or Miller, darker in color, but just a hint of aftertaste to keep you wanting another

On a recent trip back east I tried to find a Micro Brew.. In S.Haven this is the closest I was able to find. Iíd almost rather drink Budweiser than this stuff. It is an old brewery and I respect that... I wouldnít try it again...
