Okay lager with a decent bite. It’s a good alternative to the Bud and Miller you are stuck with at most PA bars. I drank it till I moved to the great Northwest and realized how many better beers exist on this planet.

hands down the best thing out there. I stand by this stuff like I stand by the liquor store every morning waiting for it to open. So you can go ahead and drink your premium imports but if you want real quality come to Pa and sample Pottsville’s finest

Pretty good out of the tap. I’ve never drank it out of the bottle.

Ah Yuengling Lager, my old friend! Back in my college days (Go Owls!), this stuff could be had for $8.00 a case in PA (and it even came with a free bowl of soup). It was a staple in my fridge. I endured ridicule from my friends for drinking it. These are the selfsame chumps who now pay $18.00+ a case to swill this stuff. My how times have changed. This a VERY overrated beer. It’s taken on cult status with little regard given to the true merits of the beer. That said, it is a nice, crisp drink, but overall there is little to recommend it. You could serve it at a BBQ without fear of poisioning anyone. Suspect odor, a hint of malt and a dissapearing hops kick leaving you wanting more. The girls love it (which translates to you loving them after about a 6-pack). You could do much worse, but it’s easy to do much better.

I remember when Yuengling was a beer snobbish as I could get as a teenager. It’s better than all the big macrobrews that’s for sure. As I’ve gotten older (and legally able to purchase whatever I want), my taste for the pale ales has certainly diminished rapidly. However, if I had to choose one, good ol’ Yuengling would be it.

Great when ice cole. Malty character with mildly bitter finish. Very drinkable, though hops leave bitter taste in mouth after 4-5 drinks.

This is good beer, tamed from the disctint sharpness of Premium, and the amber color, flavoring adds a distinct taste that is repeatable, but does not linger too long or wear thin. If you’ve had the "mother" brew, Yuengling Premium, try this with a fresh perspective, Most worldly brew coming form Pottsville.

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.
