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.

I rated this a 1.2 on 4/7. This is a pretty common beer ’round these parts. This is not a great beer but it’s better than a 1.2 which I would put as Budweiser territory. This is just a below average beer. It has much more flavor than something like Bud or Rolling Rock but pales in comparison to something that is actually good.

eh, I thought it was pretty bland, and watery, very unimpressed, there has got to be better beers.

Has a nice malty aroma but that is where it ends for me. The taste is ruined by rice malt and some kind of nasty chemical taste. No hopw to mention. Better than the Black and tan though. Reminds me of that phony Killians taste.

Better than Bud and Miller products, but worse than most other options. I had it on Draught because Bud and Miller were my only other "cheap" options. Good beer for certain situations.

Mostly thin malts in the nose, darker than most American Standards. Thin bodied with a sweet rush of corn and a puny hint of grassy, murky hops. Also had a skunked version in my Brewing Science class at Purdue just to show people why NOT to buy beer in clear and green bottles!

Light amber in color. Starts off with a nice thick head, but quickly disipates. Little hop aroma, but more than most American Pale Lagers. Weak mouthfeel. Malty taste, little hops. I can almost taste corn in the aftertaste. When compared to other American Pale Lagers, Yuengling is pretty good, but it’s nothing special when placed in the vast spectrum of beers.

I think Yeungling is better than the top 3, but other than that, there is not much going for it. It is one of the better "college beers", but not much more than that

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle - 660ml. Limpid amber body with average carbonation and thin vanishing off-white bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with oaky and flowery notes. Taste is rather thin and carries some unpleasant CO2 hints. Ends with a very short bitter finish. Not a great beer.

1829? You would figure that would be enough time to make a descent beer that tastes good. Bah dunno!
