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.

On tap at Taco Mac during epic free shirt quest. I didnít expect much from this, but I had to drink something and this one came with a nice free lager glass. Pours ultra clear amber with a small off-white head. Weak aroma of banana and corn. Tastes like this plus bready malts. Drinkable without a whole lot of bitterness in the taste or finish.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Previous tastings from several years back. I remember this to be nothing special though it is a step up from some of the other more common low cost swill beers. 6/10 - Had another bottle. My memory was accurate. Nothing Special.

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 thatís 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.

Draught. Clear amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is a bit watery, low to medium bitterness. Slightly maltier than a pale lager, but not much more flavourful.

Clear bright amber, average white head with poor retention. Light grainy aroma. Watery light grainy palate with hints of caramel and metal. Pretty blah.

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 itís best (Creemore Springs) itís 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 thatís about it. Wanted this tick forever, not worth the wait though.

12 oz. bottle. Itís 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. Itís a bit more satisfying than drinking one of the bigger macros, but that isnít saying much. A passable option if there are no other options, and you find yourself in dire need of a beer.
