Not a very good aroma...a little skunky when you open the bottle, that gives way to a very yeasty smell, but don’t 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 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.

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

This beer is not very impressive. However it does have some taste, so it is barely passable. It is certainly not a great experience. I brought some to a party to be nice. No one had it. Therefore this shit was left for me.

Poured a clear medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and malts. Lightly sweet a well. Thinner body. Nothing to go out of your way for.

My experience with this beer has been a love / hate relationship. When I first had it, I liked it. Then there was a period when I absolutely despised it. Towards my final years in college, it became the standard pitcher to get at bars, and my fondness for it has returned. Much tastier then any of the other pale lagers out there. The aftertaste and body are just different from all the other commercial brews. Decent stuff.
