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.

drowland (7798) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 I had this while visiting TN on vacation with my fiancee’s family and was apparently too busy to take good notes beyond the numbers. I was very excited to try this because I’m from the Midwest and people talk about it all the time. Overall it was fine, but disappointing with all the hype. Now that I’ve moved to FL, I can get this all the time. For being grouped with the "domestics" at restaurants and bars, it’s always the best choice. Get it fresh on tap or out of the can and it’s pretty darn good stuff - get it out of old green bottles and it’ll be skunked.

Had in bottle through a small sample and on tap at my Disney resort in Sept ’09 .. . pours a light brown, with a great head, lacing is decent .. some faint caramel and dirty sock .. . i can see the popularity when compered to the BMC’s but just a regular brew in the end.. . give a cat a can of food and its hyper, then counteract that with a its own bed, i don’t get it ..

downender (7752) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
On draft at a bar in Alexandria, Virginia October 2006. Pale amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a whiff of hops. The flavour also started with a touch of malt before a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, which I’m not a great fan of.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2005
Bottled. As the beer choice was between this and Sam Adams Light at a reception I was invited to on my trip to the US, I thought I had better give the Yuengling a go. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised. It’s clean, with a touch of malt and a slightly sweet edge. A bit bland, but it is a pale lager. In fact, it’s quite reasonable for a pale lager.

Ughsmash (7506) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear honeyed amber with a light cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up honey, corn syrup, and a touch of vegetable oil, with light lemon zest around.. kind of a dank impression on the back of the nose. The flavor found more honey and some bready malts at the core.. lemon left a little tartness on the edges, and some residual sugars on the finish.. too sugary-sweet at the end. Lighter-bodied with an odd interplay between tartness and the sugars.. OK level of carbonation.. decent stuff.

Bottle kinda shared by Mattew, many thanks. Amber golden color with minimal white head. Malt, caramel in aroma. Light taste of malt, caramel, very light hops. OK.

after4ever (7400) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
12-oz., trade w/BeachBum25. Pours medium amber with a thin, diminishing white head. Yeast on the nose, with a nice, clean, mild, neutral flavor profile all through the drink, from the attack to the finish. Session lager for a hot sunny day. Thanks for the bottle!

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 Had from a variety case..enjoyed this beer, as far as pale lager’s go this is an average beer. Main point is that there is nothing offensive and its extremely easy to drink.

Ernest (7200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Undrinkable macro clone. Oh, and for what it's worth...purchased cold and seemingly fresh in a bomber-size brown bottle.
