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.

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.

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.

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

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) … 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?

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 it’s better than most US macrobrews, it doesn’t have the character to compete with a good lager. I feel my friends overrate this beer just because it’s often one of the better mass-market alternatives at a typical bar, for a fairly reasonable price. But it’s still got a lot of mass-market cheap-beer corny flavor.
