2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 Quart Bottle (The store was out of 6-packs). Suprisingly has resisted urge to lighten up their flagship so it looks and taste more like megabrewed crap. Color is certainly amber (again, no p--- yellow A/B color), kicks up a frothy head. Sweet malty taste, almost roasty caramel, and trace of flavoring hops. Surprising yeast taste, may turn off some people. Could the big bottle have been old? Still, an interesting catch. Had the whole quart and 3 Lord Chesterfields and didn't feel a thing. Will try to set this as my baseline for a "not great-not terrible" beer (and I've now sampled from America's two oldest family breweries, Yuengling and Schells. Who's third oldest?).

My favorite domestic lager for years and years. For years I would get it fresh in central PA for best results, Iím a little uneasy with it coming north. Warm attractive aroma but not as much nose as I would like. Rather a small head. straightforward taste with a roasty, coffee touch. Goes down easily. Not enough lingering on the palate. A good beer for a hot thirsty man, for days when you want to just enjoy and not have to think about and analyse it. I buy six packs and cases but never let them last too long as I am suspicious about freshness here in New England.

Bottle from Liquor Mart in New York City September 2013. One of those beers that you at least have to try, and it wasnít as bad as I expected.

Light amber, almost no head, medium carbonation, grainy and light caramel flavor. Very sessionable, best than other pale lagers.

Bottle, can, and earlier when Iím out east. Easy drinking with a unique dry taste, not as much flavor but always satisfying. Some may say overrated, but a cut above other commercial everyman beers.

I think there are lot of people who are enamored by Yuengling. Itís not a bad beer by any means. I think itís kind of overrated. Itís a lager, and thatís it. Nothing special. It from Americaís oldest brewery which is cool but it tastes kind of average. I canít drink very many of these because it gives me a massive headache for some reason. If you can get it definitely try it because it is an iconic beer, I just think it is a little over-hyped. But at the end of the day itís beer so who cares.

Light in flavor, not much hops either. Dry finish. Better than bmc, but not by much.

Overall not a great lager. Taste light with little hops. Medium carbonation with a sub par after taste.

Bottle, Christmas day - Amber color. Taste was okay. Nice & smooth, wet, malty...not bad. Enjoyed it but was also thirsty as hell. Would drink it again but not by choice.

Bottle. Little aroma and blandish taste - some floral hops? Standard anywhere lager. Drinkable and forgettable.
