UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Not a great beer by any means, but when its served and priced along with other major "premium" beers this is obviously the way to go. Not much going on, light sweetness and medium-bodied.

Had on tap in New Jersey. Looks bronze with moderate to high carbonation. Smells slightly yeasty and warming. Tastes as it looks - bright with some hops that give it a clean, almost grassy feeling.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Tap. Nice sweet malt and hops aroma. Dark yellow color with good head. Smooth slightly sweet malt flavor - slight hops. A very enjoyable beer.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Pours a golden hue with a small, fast-fading white head. Aromas of good old skunk with a little moldiness and slight fruitiness. Flavors of nuts, a little toasted malt flavor. Not bad for a pale lager, probably the best I have had so far, yet far from a great brew.

Not a very good aroma...a little skunky when you open the bottle, that gives way to a very yeasty smell, but dont let that turn you off. Looks nice, an even amber color with a nice white head that gives way pretty quickly. Taste is a pretty full body, kind of on the gritty/chewy side. A little bitter on the tail, especially if you let it get a little warm. Coming from Pennsylvania, I have always been able to get this beer, even before it became a mass produced item, and it has always been one of my favorite beers to sit and drink en masse. If you compare it to other mass produced brew like bud or miller, it would be a 5, but compared to more complex brews, it is kind of mediocre. Still, this is what I order in bars and what I buy when I am gonna be pounding.

Amber with small head. Sweet, but with noticeable and unmistable Yuengling yeast. Very drinkable.

While its better than most US macrobrews, it doesnt have the character to compete with a good lager. I feel my friends overrate this beer just because its often one of the better mass-market alternatives at a typical bar, for a fairly reasonable price. But its still got a lot of mass-market cheap-beer corny flavor.

The first time I had this beer was at a Phish show in indianapolis. Someone brought this from PA and I wish I could shake their hand. This beer is one of my favorites and everytime I drink it I consider flying to PA to get some cases. Very good stuff IMO
