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.

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.

hopscotch (8862) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2002
UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland american standards. Appearance = Coors Extra Gold. Aroma = Coors Light Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors. Palate = Miller Light This is "America's Oldest Brewery"? I guess this is a testament to the average American's affection toward flavorless beer brewed with lots and lots of adjuncts.

Draught
Amber color. Very light and watery, pretty dry; nothing else to mention about it.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2003
Draft, after playing volleyball. Pours surprisingly dark for a lager, nice white head. Not much in the way of aroma. Decent balance on the palate, but overcarbonated. Taste isn't bad, but not great either. Not nearly as malty as the color would indicate, some hops, but very faint. Not even close to any continental lager, but beats Bud.

0399 case code (bottles) Ö Pours beautifully, then trouble! Fizzy corn water. From the bottle, devoid of any flavor; from the can, occasional horrific chemical under/ overtones. Geezus... could that can-based off-flavor be bathroom cleaner?

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Green bottle with twist off cap. Copper colored brew with no head, reeks of corn. Goes down okay, but still lots of corn flavor and unpleasantly sweet.

While itís better than most US macrobrews, it doesnít have the character to compete with a good lager. I feel my friends overrate this beer just because itís often one of the better mass-market alternatives at a typical bar, for a fairly reasonable price. But itís still got a lot of mass-market cheap-beer corny flavor.

Yellow beer with slight chalky aroma. Light malt in little hops in mouth. Boring wee. Bottle. CNY Brewfest Feb. 5 2005.

an easy drinking beer with little flavor. if it has to be cheap beer then this might be the one.
