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.

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.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 17, 2007
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.

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
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.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - JUL 22, 2008
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.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Draft. I must begin with stating that I hate this style of beer. That being said, this was one of the least objectionable that I have tried. I was in PA on a family vacation and tried this on tap at dinner. It has a grainy/bready aroma that is a bit more substantial than the big macros. Flavor is slightly bigger than said macros, a little toasted bread, but nothing to get excited about. Not complete crap however.

Pale golden, smells almost identically and tastes almost identical to Budweiser. Almost no white head. Mettalicy smell, little palate and only lingering taste is astringent. 3 3 4 2
