In the world of the blind, as they say, the one-eyed man is king. For me, Yuengling is the one-eyed man of macro-crap lagers. I enjoy it, although it does suck. Foamy, thin, just a bit sweet, but somehow it makes for a good night of cheap drinking.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Bottle and draft. Pours a nice amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is minimal: fruity, a bit sour/skunky, some mild malt. Flavor is mildly fruity and sour, mildly hoppy in the finish. About the best macro around, for what that’s worth.

Can while playing a round of golf. Have no idea what it looked like so I will go average on that. Taste was a tad better than the big 3 macros. Just nothing special here at all.

I finally had this beer while on a trip to North Carolina. On tap into a pint glass...Pours a medium clear copper with amber, a light tan head, not much retention or lacing...The aroma is light corn and a hint of skunk, not appetizing...The taste is not good at all, skunk throughout, light bitter finish. Better than a BMC but that’s about it.
Wanted this tick forever, not worth the wait though.

12 oz. bottle. It’s a cheap, pale lager with an undeserved reputation of actually being good beer. The taste -- like its appearance -- is flat, and the whole thing is rather forgettable. It’s a bit more satisfying than drinking one of the bigger macros, but that isn’t saying much. A passable option if there are no other options, and you find yourself in dire need of a beer.

Bad beer watery unbalance bitterness. No aroma and flat on in your mouth.

Best cheap beer out there at about 75 cents a bottle. Drinks smooth but there is nothing special about the taste.

A little on the skunky side, but very refreshing and smooth. I get a lot of corn in the aroma, but that is not surprising in an American lager. Nothing special, but better than MGD or Bud.

Pours a coppery color with very thin, fizzy white head. Slight banana aroma. Somewhat sweet grain flavor. No hop character. A decent choice among bad beers, but nothing special at all.

I used to drink an awful lot of this ten our so years ago. Looks nice-amber with foamy dissipating head. Smells really bready and sweet with a hint of some citrus. Tastes really sweet with a popcorn flavor. Tingly on the tongue- sweet after taste.
