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.

I guess this is pretty good beer. It’s better on tap in Pennsylvania then from a bottle. If you like bad beer, and are forced to drink a good one Yuengling Lager might be the way to go.

One of my friends always raved about this beer so I just had to give it a try. Definatly an over rated brew. Love Lager, hate this beer. extremely bland for me. Many people like it, just not for me.

this must be a bad tradition, taste and flavor apparently not on the bus for this one. apparently i need to try this with seafood after looking at the comments.

Funny story, my friend brewed a beer that tasted like Yuengling... but wasn’t watered down to hell like this.

In terms of the large scale beers from the US, this is quite good. However is doesn’t come close to the craft brews from around the area. The water quality used in this beer does not taste great, leaving a metallic taste in the beer. Pours an amber colour with a frothy white head . The pale malt is not very well defined. Quite watery.

This was a simple lager. Nothing great, but better than Bud, if only by a bit. Aroma was missing, visuals were typical, taste was rice and corn, and palate was short and bland. Perfectly average.

mostly macro character, but with a hint of actual hop flavor. has some color to it, but no discernible malt flavors.

4/12/01: Original rating 0.8. After struggling through one of these this evening i feel that i am compelled to rerate it. ’Lager’, as most people in Pennsylvania call it, for i personally believe many of them are unaware any other beers exist, is quite possibly the most overrated beer on this site I.M.H.O. In the bottle the beer looks like water with amber food coloring added to it. I gave this a 2 for appearance because i like amber better than pale, piss yellow. When poured there is a small white head that quickly disappears and you are left with a glass of what appears to be amber water. Emanating from the glass and bottle are lovely odors of what appears to be laundry detergent. Tasting the beer reveals (Surprise!!) a lovely flavor of soap, reminding me oftimes in grade school when i cursed at the teacher. Just as annoying as the soap flavor is the persistent metallic flavor forming of the back of my tongue which is really pissing me off. I am left feeling empty, as if i just swallowed water straight out of the lower Schuykill. No recognizable malts, no hops whatsoever. I find this to be just another run of the mill piss poor lager, and dare i say it, i might actually drink a Bud (and i HATE Bud) before i drink another one of these. Yuengling does make some good beers, the Porter and Black and Tan, but this lager can’t compete with the likes of Victory or Stegmaier.
