Don’T believe the hype. Had this beer in another state since it’s not available in mine. Pale taste with a lingering aftertaste that is not pleasant. Tastes like Michelob amberbock mixed with rolling rock....cheap though....afraid to try the black and tan.

Will I ever find a lager I kinda like? I mean, when I’m at a bar, playing pool, this is the best by far of some options that make me give the spontaneous "stink-face". Best part of this beer is its appearance. Honestly, it’s the color of a bud bottle with a mild ruddy hue. Little, but lingering head. Not off putting wheaty/caramely but typical sour wift on the backside. We just go further downhill when we get to flavor. Tolerable, when you’re in an environment that requires beer. Sweet malt, then sour-ick. Oh brother. I’m tired of writing about this beverage. Basically, the least of all evils at this bar.

light yellow pour with a decent white head, little retention. sweet malts, light herbal notes, faint fruitiness, some citrus notes. aggressive carbonation, light body, no finish.

Smells like a slight more robust pale lager than the norm, but still just grain and corn. Pours a deep clear amber with a wimpy head. Tastes grainy and flat. Feels standard. Overall eh.

Paid $1 for a 16 oz can at Kroger. No aroma to speak of. Taste was yeast, cornflake, cardboard, with an unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Light thin body with average carbonation. Was curious to try this since it’s new to Ohio. Glad I only got one can.

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..
