2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours golden with white head on tap, aroma is some grass, hay, and earth. Taste is light grass, bread, slightly bitter finish. Very average lager, but better than a lot of them.

When had on draft itís really not too bad, but most likely because Iím not in beer-geek mode and rather just enjoying drinking beer with whatever food is being had. Anyways, this beer does seem to have some decent hop character when I tried it, and overall it tasted fresh. Not complex, not really that interesting, but far from being terrible tasting. Light and oily, fizzy texture. Lightly sweet flavors of maple and grassy hops. Decent but you basically know itís not going to be too impressive.

I've been drinking Dick Yuengling's beer since college (Zeno's in State College, PA, used to have $2.00 pitchers of lager and porter circa 1990) and it seems fitting to break my 100 review cherry with this beer. I actually got Dick to sign a poster for me in college, and he was one hell of a nice guy. I have always liked this beer, and it is encouraging for me to find out that it is taking off rapidly, expanding down the East Coast to Florida. On to the review. This beer pours light amber, with a medium head. The taste is slightly malty, slightly sweet. It's like a hybrid amber/golden ale, even though it is a lager. The finish is smooth. I agree about the skunk factor. Yuengling still uses a lot of green bottles (they use brown also, but brown costs a little more). In this day and age, there is no excuse for using green bottles, and that is my only real complaint with this beer (the same complaint I have about Pilsner Urquell). If you sample it, buy it in the heavy cardboard case (brown bottles). As a bonus, this beer continues to be one of the more affordable good beers in the world, and it kicks the shit out of Coors, Miller, and Budweiser. Try it....I guarantee you'll like it. It's one of the beers I have when I'm having more than one. Thanks for reading, and I'll see y'all at 200. DocLock

Salt and iron are not good things in a beer i.m.o….Are there some hops in this one, or just corn?

On tap. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a notes of musty bread with some grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor started with a slight citrus and grain note with some grass and hay coming out in the finish.

TAP: copper/amber pour, smells like wheat/grass, taste is earthy. Not great, not terrible, just there. A Philly staple.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear bright amber, average white head with poor retention. Light grainy aroma. Watery light grainy palate with hints of caramel and metal. Pretty blah.

Green bottle with much thanks to bu11zeye (and angrypirate06). Pours with a clear, light copper-amber body and a fading white head. Aroma is sweet, corn, caramel, nutty. Taste is water, nuts and caramel. Not entirely offensive. Lively bubbles, dry and watery finish.

Draft at Wintzellís Oyster House in Mobile. I was surprised at how common this beer is in Mobile and other cities down south, since itís such a traditional Yankee brew. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, hops, grass, grain. Flavor follows suit, with a general earthiness to it. Mouthfeel is light and grainy. Finishes crisp with minimal aftertaste. When the choice is between this or typical American macro lagers (and that will generally be the case), Iím going with this every time.
