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 (2088) - 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 (11618) - 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.

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. richlikebeer (839) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2004
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. Megan (101) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Light copper hue. Small head. Clear body. Moderatley sweet tasting and smooth palate. Short and sweet finish. civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Amber with small head. Sweet, but with noticeable and unmistable Yuengling yeast. Very drinkable. xetnauq (13) - USA - DEC 12, 2004
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.
