I remember when Yuengling was a beer snobbish as I could get as a teenager. It’s better than all the big macrobrews that’s for sure. As I’ve gotten older (and legally able to purchase whatever I want), my taste for the pale ales has certainly diminished rapidly. However, if I had to choose one, good ol’ Yuengling would be it. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 Even though this one is a little on the weak side I like it. The aroma is slightly toasted malt and grassy hops. The appearance is average with an average head. But the flavor is a little maltier than most without being overly syrupy or corny. Finish is clean but slightly sweet. VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Lightly sweet, lightly yeasty aroma. Overall bland flavor with just a bit of maltiness, and very little aftertaste. jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Not a bad beer at all. It’s too pale in a glass for me but I wouldn’t recomend it in a glass. It’s a great session beer. Little head, bubbly. It has a stronger flavor than your basic macro-brew and excellent for the price. bubbleflubber (2227) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 Funny, I can honestly drink their "light" version of this better than the beer itself. It’s certainly better than the other macros it’s paired with in the grocery store, but in present company, that doesn’t say very much. It pours rich in color and has a diminishing head to lace the glass. The aroma is hard to pinpoint, but there’s a fine line between floral and skunky. This beer just isn’t memorable. Everything about is completely average. Locals swear that this offering smells and tastes just like the Schuylkill River water that runs nearby. Let’s just say it doesn’t necessarily enhance the flavor. Medium bodied, mild hops and a watery mouthfeel pretty much sum it up. "Very" middle of the road IMHO. I guess that’s why I don’t choose it by trade.

Inexpensive nut well worth in terms of quality. Pours with a full head. Has a sweet flavour complimented by a hop bitterness. Made with rice so a little bland. I’ll drink another. riot8088 (3) - USA - DEC 26, 2004 does not count
A good beer. Try this on tap, it is so much better and it is usually cheap since it is a macrobrew. johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - DEC 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Not a great beer by any means, but when it’s 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. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2004
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. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2004
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.
