The Pennsylvania equivalent of the West Coast’s Henry Weinhardt’s Private Reserve. A very basic lager, but with way more flavor and depth than Budweiser. Has an annoyingly metallic flavor, but not bad if you are out of money and want to drink a few brewskis at a party.

Nice for a lager, which is not quite my favorite style. Smooth and a little sweet. Nothing at all offensive.

Pushes the borderline between macroswill and microbrewery. Mix a Bug Light with a high-quality brew, and I'd expect it to taste like this. Probably good to give as gifts to friends that haven't yet disocvered beer beyond BMC, but don't bother buying it for yourself.

bottle: im surprised by the ratings here. this is your average lager. could be a notch of the huge macros. but not much better. bland taste thin watered down beer with not much going on except a bad aftertaste. stay away from it kids, there are many other that are better.

Totally missed the boat on this thing, I guess. Wow, nothing really here. Nice dark color, but that’s about it. Smells of rice and corn or something like that. I feel like I’m drinking a lager dropped in a farmyard.

Use to be hard to come by, now it’s everywhere. Really liked it at first, now all I get is a strange sweet taste out of it, not too enjoyable.

This beer ranks up with bud and bud light, terrible. Some in my area seem to like it, probably due to lack of availability, but overall not a great beer.

Bottle. Amber, small offwhite head. Perfume aroma with some nutty notes. Quite boring flavor with some hops and nuts.

An overrated beer. Slightly unpleasant taste with a distinctly unpleasant aftertaste. Not much better than Bud.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 This stuff does a terrible number on me the next day if I have too much of this crap at the bar. It also pisses me off when people (mostly law-school kids) who order a "lager". They dont say yuengling they just say ill have a lager. I used to like this in college but I realized a while ago that this tuff is jsut as terrible as any macro swill.
