GrooveDaddy (25) - Bham, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2012
A good, reasonably priced brew thats increasing in availability. I first discovered Yuengling in early 2007; I was between jobs at the time and on a budget, so I had to get something affordable, yet I didnt want to go back to crap like Miller High Life. Enter Yuengling Traditional Lager; a beer with spicy notes of pine thats of a reasonably high quality. I remember that night as if it were yesterday; I was at the Publix on hwy 150 in Hoover, and some black lady was looking for some beer, and noticed a 12-pack of Yuengling bottles; she said, "I think Ill try some of dat young-ling." My curiosity was piqued; I decided to also give it a shot, and Im glad I did. I prefer this beer in cans as opposed to bottles, as it can go bad in bottles much quicker; there are two gas stations about 3 minutes from where I live that both carry it in 12-packs of cans; just get you one of them, and some chips & dip (with a steak to cook later) and youre all set for your Sunday night TV (Foxs cartoons, AMCs The Walking Dead, Showtimes Dexter, HBOs Boardwalk Empire, etc), or to catch up on your DVRed episodes of Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, American Horror Story Asylum, Star Trek reruns, etc. All in all, its an economic alternative when you still must insist upon quality in a good beer......

Rex_Remes (158) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 6, 2017
(12oz bottle, Virginia USA) AROMA: slightky sweet corn/malt, some warm notes, bread/toast, hint of hops. APPEARANCE: light Amber in color (almost ale-like), thin yet oily head, clear. TASTE: tad sweet, tad sour, tad bitter. Some upfront grain and yeast, then a bit pungent, grass, green, slight bitter ending. PALATE: tart and spritzy, cleansing, a little creamy residual. OVERALL: a decent lager. Strong points are its Amber color and balanced drink ability. Not as robust as a hoppy Pilsner, relatively simple and straightforward, but good nevertheless.

Panzerfaust (837) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - OCT 30, 2016
12 fl.oz. bottle. Gift from Eduardo Ruiz-Tagle. Pours a beautiful clear amber with a big white frothy head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with subtle malt undertones balancing towards a bready, cakey note. Predominant hints of grass, herbs, some touches of lemon. Taste is a tiny bit sweet with low herbal bitterness, and lots of neutral bready and doughy flavors. Herbs come to the fore again at the finish. Not bad, but a bit watery. Light bodied, high carbonation. Well balanced, quaffable Amber Lager... a bit too light for my taste.

tbonde (331) - DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016
Large [email protected] Airport Hotel in straight [email protected] 7 degrees C. Pours amber/reddish brown with sufficient off white head with OK retention. Aroma of roasted malt and slight hoppiness. Taste mirrors aroma with plenty of well balanced roasted malt and toffee with a slight hoppy bitterness which is retained in the aftertaste. Texture a little waterey. Not unlike a Danish "Classic" brew. Pleasant surprise....well balanced, pure and decent tasting.

This is a wonderfully traditional beer. It is not meant to be the highest quality beer, but to be the reasonably priced blue collar beer. Much better on tap than in the bottle, however this is true for most beers. If I had my pick this is what I will usually go for. On another note, some of these reviews seem to be for the light version and not the original lager. The clear straw color is Yuengling light, not the lager. The lager pours a darker caramel color
