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.

This one is a lot softer than the "regular Yuengling" a.k.a. "Premium Beer". Extremely soft, mild taste. Very grainy flavour. Hint of hops, but very little bitterness, no bite. Extremely smooth, almost sweet. I would not say watery, nor bland, but this one is way too smooth for me.

EithCubes (5549) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2008 Finally, to the scientific re-rate: Oh, the memories! Green bottle. Very little aroma, perhaps a little dust on top of old barely-there hops. Deep golden body with a quickly-fizzed white head. Taste is vaguely malty, sweetish cereal grains and a near fruity bg. Light body and an indistinct aftertaste. This tends to be a little sweeter than most pale lagers, and thereís a bit more caramel in the back. Smooth enough feel with some oblique crispness. Iíve had considerably mixed experiences with this staple beer; in peak form, itís clear better than BMC and even edges up toward the top of its bland category as a refreshing campfire/BBQ drink, but there have been far too many light-struck and otherwise skunked bottles and kegs to validate awarding any praise. A shame, Pottsville region, you nearly had something to pride yourselves in.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2006
From my notes, August í04. Amber color with a thin white head. Slightly bitter taste. A bit dry and defined. Aroma of malts. Watery palate. Better than macro junk, but no match for their porter.

I guess being in Pittsburgh for the second time, I have to try this. Served on tap at Primanti Bros. Clear copper body. Minimal head. Stale lagerish aroma, minimal hops. Same with flavor. Okay commoner beer. I suppose it goes good with the Cheese Steak sandwich.

Malt grain aroma. Thin amber colour. Doughy flavour with a little funk. Drinkable, though.

Draft. Golden color with a small white head. Flavor was weak and watery. Refreshing, but definitely nothing special.

Had this on tap. Pours a light gold. Flavor is very faint. Other than that, drinkable.

McGarnigle (612) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Upside is itís color: reddish amber. But this belies itís lack of flavor. Ultimately, Y. is an American macro thatís drunk more for texture (fizzy) and temperature (cold) than taste. It is cheap, though, and Iíd take it over Bud, Coors, Miller and the lot.

Great go-to beer for parties, pretty much everyoneís had it so they know the deal. Gets the job done in a classier way than most party beers. Great for beirut.

Pretty solid. Canít really complain here, just nothing special that stands out at you. I guess if you are drinking this you arenít looking for that anyway. Drink up!
