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.

Being from the Coal Region in PA, where this is made, I grew up drinkin this stuff. Its by far my favorite beer and the only reason I dont drink it more often is because I am a struggling college student.

This is, by far, the finest beer I have ever consumed. Price, flavor, and availability all come together in a nice package.

One of my favorites of all time. From the USA’s oldest continually operating brewery, they have had a long time to get it right. Its not a light beer buy any means and is not so heavy that its going to ruin your appetite. Very little bitterness to this beer and may not be “hopy” enough for some but all around a delightful lager.

Easy drinkin and tasty. Its suprisingly light for a Lager, so I can drink more of it. Hmm, perhaps I should try its new Light brother.

Mmmm...Yuengling...Tall Dark & Smooth, just like my favorite men...oh, I mean beer. Now I don’t know about the rest of these chumps on here, but when I’m bowling, I like to have a seat after a frame and have a plastic cup of nice cold Zingling. Foosball for All. Go Pikes.

This beer is stands as my favorite beer. Everything about it is superior. The taste is refreshing and full bodied yet not too filling. I could drink this all day long.
