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.

VERY overrated beer. Mainly for people who think they look chic or sophisticated by drinking it but in reality know nothing about good beer. I am from PA, and have no idea why this nonsense has such a cult following.

Had on tap at Fulton's Crab House in Downtown Disney. A quite bland lager, ripe with all the worst features of American macros: light color, artificial head, corn aroma, bland flavor. (But man, the food at this restaurant was most excellent!)

Light clear orange, small white head. Light stale hops aroma, has some beer taste, but not much. Way ahead of a typical budmillercoors product.

I hate lagers. I repeat - I hate lagers. That being said, I do like Yuengling for what it is. It's a decent, inexpensive, every-day kind of beer. Overall, it's not my style (I prefer ales), so it's a little crisp for my taste. However, so far it's my favorite of the lagers. Pours a moderate amber color, with some head; doesn't last long though. Aroma's not great, in fact it's pretty funky; mild corn and alcohol; unexpected from an amber beer. Taste is light (again unexpected from an amber) and a little hoppy. Lacing? Fuggetaboutit. It does get a bit sticky in the mouth once you've had a couple. Still a good one to keep in the fridge on a regular basis, although not something with which to treat yourself.

Slighly better than the average american lager, it still looks better than it tastes. It has a bigger body and maltier taste than most of its ilk. Now if it only had some hops..

Good drinking beer. I actually prefer this one from a can as opposed to the bottle. Decent draft beer, I generally drink this at home: $5 six pack vs $3 draft at a bar.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 Just a small step up from the "water beers" - Bud, Miller, etc. Flavor is almost non-existant, and it’s common to find a skunky one. Being from Philly, I’d like to say better things about this beer, but I’d much rather have a Victory or even a Dock Street.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 A beer that isn’t worth a glass to pour it in. Though I’ll admit that it is better than a normal lager. Pretty much the best of the macro-brews next to Sam Adams. Gold in color with a good amount of carbonation. Smooth ending with doesn’t add... nor detract from the taste. An ok beer for mass drinking.

when i first discovered yuenglings i thought what a wonderful beer. the flavor and palate were perfect for the times. two years ago it started showing up in the local stores, and it was cheaper than i remembered so i bought a case. something had happened either the beer had lost its quality or ihad lost my sense of taste, or my mind (anythings possible

Clear light amber with a medium sized beige head that quickly recedes to nothing. Strange aroma that is malty but sour at the same time. Flavor is light and unobtrusive with little hop character. A medium mouthfeel makes it feel like a decent beer, but something in the flavor is just plain off (corn?)
