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.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Pours amber with white creamy head. Aroma is light and malty. Flavor is also light, slightly hopped, mostly sweet malt. Better than most macros, but thatís about it.

Opaque copper color, small foamy head. Smells like wet cardboard...sweet wet cardboard. Very watery, light, light hop flavor, very carbonated feel. Taste like sparkling Miller Lite. Humm, I no think I like this one.

Pours transparent gold. Has the typical pale lager smell, fermented malt and a slight touch of non-descript noble hops. Taste is nothing new or special, pretty straightforward grains with a mild (extremely mild) hops twinge at the end. Iím glad Americans have become better at brewing beer from these humble beginnings.

I grew up on this beer, but it seems that when they went national, the taste was lost and every one I have now tastes as skunked beer. D.G., PLEASE bring back the old recipe. This is not just my opinion either, as many of the people around my area agree...something was changed.

Just a good beer as far as Lagers go. It actually has some flavor. Gets too sweet after about 7 or 8.

Pours a translucent gold with white foamy head. Aroma of roaster malt. Tastes like dirt and a hint of citrus rinds, Really bad beer. Thin and watery.

Not sure what the big deal is with Yuengling. Came in a green bottle with a twist-off top, so there are two strikes. But this isn't much different than Miller Genuine Draft except with a wee bit more flavor. But microbrew? Craft beer? No way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itís crap. Smells worse than old style. On the plus side it is hand for simmering brats in.

Poured piss colored. Aroma didnít exist outside a few wiffs of rubber. Had a flavor I compare to budweiser. Some rice grain malt, corn syrup, and rubber. 2pac would enjoy this one.
