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.

Really nice amber color. Kind of refreshing. That is about all the good I have to say about this beer. Skunky aroma and the taste is kind of "off". Lager is not my favorite anyway, but at it’s best (Creemore Springs) it’s crisp, clean and the right tastes stand out. This may be the best of the macro breweries, but kind of pales in comparison to anything craft-like.

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.
