Boy, moving from Anheiser Busch to Yuengling... err, I mean from St Louis to PA, is a nice change. As far as macro brews go, this is one of the better ones... certainly beating the pants off any AB products that you can buy anywhere. Aroma is a littel grainy and sweet. Appearance-wise, you might actually think this was beer rather than urine. Nice amber color, small head that disappears. Flavor is sweet and watery with definite grain sweetness. Refreshing, but not substantial.

Golden yellow. Bitter with a slight aftertaste. If all there is to drink is light beer and this, pick this.

Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Tastes very watery, some maltyness. Just not much here.

Not much exciting going on here other than the fact that it is the world’s oldest brewery. Otherwise tastes like a macro lager with a little more bitter bite on the back side.

On tap. Poured gold with orange highlights. The head was white and thin. No lacing to speak of. The aroma was mostly hops with nothing special really standing out. The flavor was fairly one-dimensional with hops dominating. The mouthfeel was sub-par as the aggressive carbonation and bitter finish left, well, a bad taste in my mouth. I think this one gets the "Over-rated! clap-clap-clapclapclap" award of the day.

From 12 oz can. Poured gold color with small white head. Very simple and not much on flavor. Alright if you want a beer and only have 10 minutes to drink it.

Many of our palates have been spoiled by craft brews, but Yuengling remains a decent lager in the macro section. The 2.0 rating isn’t fair when holding this up to the microbrews many of us have become accustomed to. A very decent brew, especially on a hot summer day by the pool.

bottle-light brown lager with a thin head. Light body that felt watery on the palate. Easy drinking beer, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good beer.

For an Amercian lager this one is at least drinkable. Not great, but drinkable. A richer color than most and a better malt flavor without the skuniness found in many of USA’s worst lagers.

Taste 7/8 bottle5/8. Looks: Amber to copper little head. Aroma: A little skunk, faint yeast and caramel. Taste: Mild candy sugar, spice and a watery mouthfeel. Very weak finish. Nothing too foul. O.k. for my friends to drink.
