This is an ok lager. Not bad if you're at a friend's house for a football game and it's there for free but, if just didn't do anything for me. Kind of boring and weak and I may sound nuts but I taste somewhat of a banana-like aftertase. wolfman913 (5) - Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2004 does not count
Good flavor, especially for the price. Sweet tones with a unique, smooth finish. A fine local brew for Southeastern PA. mrruben (3) - USA - FEB 15, 2004 does not count

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 a nice easy drinking lager.. nothing more to say then that. If I lived in PA it would be probably my favorite to get drunk with on a night out, it´s that easy! but anyway, a slightly above average lager... RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Poured a nice amber color with a small head. Malt and hops in the aroma, but not a very strong one at all. Taste is slightly above average, like a high-end macro, but not a premium beer at all. Good, but by no means great.

Fairly dark amber, more so than I expected. Only a thin, dissipating, white head. The aroma is fairly malty with hints of hops and perhaps some unsavory adjunct. The body is clean and fairly refreshing. The flavors are nothing spectacular but also not offensive. The malt heavily out-weighs the hops. There are some light hints of lemon, not really as a zest or in fruit form. More like lemon yogurt. An average lager. pjk33 (390) - Sligo - Curllsville Heights, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Bottle, can, draught, you name it. This lager has become much more popular in the last few years here in western PA. Pours a nice amber color with small, quickly disipating head. Aroma is weak, smells like a beer from a keg party in high school, without much good or bad within. Tastes like a slightly above average lager with nice, slightly malty finish, but not incredibly memorable. Mouthfeel is normal, not bad, not great. Better than a lot of beers out there, but I don't buy it often. An ok lager. awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Stole this bottle from a friends fridge, he laughed and said that it was old. I said no biggie and took it anyways. Opened it up and smelled the age on it, skunk beer was apparent. Didn't even pour it and just decided to drink from the bottle. It has the taste that would probably be good if I got to it sooner. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 4, 2004
bottle: im surprised by the ratings here. this is your average lager. could be a notch of the huge macros. but not much better. bland taste thin watered down beer with not much going on except a bad aftertaste. stay away from it kids, there are many other that are better.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 If my mind were an encyclopedia, and you were to look up the entry for "beer," there would be a picture of Yuengling Traditional Lager. It's not a fancy beer, so these guys should stop whining that it could use more hop bitters and all that crap. This is a solid, delicious, refreshing beer that will quench your thirst, make you forget your horrible day at work, and give you faith that you don't have to spend $8 to get a 6-pack of good beer. I'm not saying that it can compete at a fancy beer tasting party where everybody sips their brews with their pinkies extended while wearing monocles, but it is a high-quality, somewhat malty, excellent beer. You can drink it with a filet mignon, a cheeseburger, or all by itself. Tasty and drinkable, this beer should be the staple of your beer diet if you live where it can be purchased. That being said, if you want something super hoppy and imported so that you can fancy yourself a beer aficionado, this will rate among the mediocre. Long live the Yuengling, the very good beer that can be enjoyed by both the peasantry and the nobility. And it's from America's oldest brewery.
