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.

rosenbergh (8548) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2011
710 ml can. From Gerry, NY.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sugary fruity and sweet malty aroma. Aromas of Baltic Strong Lager and Danish Vienna combined. Not that tempting. Mild hops, sweet malt and Play-Doh in flavour. Disappointment.

DrSilverworm (8546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2012
12oz can. Clear orange color. Thin, mostly white head, fading to minimal, then barely nothing, eventually. Decent lace enough lace to start out, though. Bubbles on side of glass. Moderate, more smooth + crisp, but stronger carbonation, but kinda acidic texture. Aroma is faint, a little watered down, but whatís there isnít that great. Some caramel malt, light spice, little lagery funk, not much else. Not really much taste, either. Sour zest, some savory, not really sure, itís faint. Good, for a cheap american macro-lager to get in lieu of Bud Light or whatever. I think this is slightly worse than Yuengling Light, but Iíll still probably continue to choose this version just because itís a cheaper for the ABV. This is all about the cheap buzz, right?

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

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Golden amber body with a good sized off white head that is actually kind of impressive. (3+) Rough grainy aroma hints at macro alcohol is off putting, with a light hint of sweet dried grass thats not unpleasant. Modest hoppy bitterness accents a sweet primary flavour profile. Sweet melange of muddled malts, grains and possible other fermentables? Average palate is more full than most pale lagers. I canít say I enjoyed it, but it is inoffensive, and for a mainstream pale lager its surprisingly drinkable and has an inkling of real flavour to it. Handily exceeded my very low expectations. Can courtesy of Tupalev, shared with Mabel

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2011
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.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
Clear bright amber, average white head with poor retention. Light grainy aroma. Watery light grainy palate with hints of caramel and metal. Pretty blah.

BVery (7952) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2009
TAP: copper/amber pour, smells like wheat/grass, taste is earthy. Not great, not terrible, just there. A Philly staple.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
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.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of corn, grass and a bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap, House of Brews, NYC. Copper with a thinning off white rim. Cherry drop aroma with toasted nut hints. Bready, toasted malt slicked with caramel; vague cream and toasted nut hints. Toffee popcorn afters with vegetal streaks. More like a cheap Eurodunkel than a lager IMO. Drinkable.
