Mariusz (12066) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2013
Thanks for this bottle to teddybeer. Pours amber with a white head. Grainy taste and aroma. I enjoyed this one with some crisps and it worked well.

deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a notes of musty bread with some grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor started with a slight citrus and grain note with some grass and hay coming out in the finish.

rosenbergh (11653) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2011
710 ml can. From Gerry, NY.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sugary fruity and sweet malty aroma. Aromas of Baltic Strong Lager and Danish Vienna combined. Not that tempting. Mild hops, sweet malt and Play-Doh in flavour. Disappointment.

2.5
Meilby (11525) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle 355ml @ DoubleTree Hotel, Annapolis, MD
Pours clear copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, caramel and corn. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

shrubber85 (11506) - 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.

hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 This beer has all the best characteristics of several other bland pale/amber lagers
Appearance = Coors Extra Gold.
Aroma = Coors Light
Flavor = Somewhere between Budweiser and Original Coors.
Palate = Miller Light
This is "America’s Oldest Brewery?" I guess this is a testament to the average American’s affection toward flavorless beer brewed with loads of adjuncts.

For an Amercian lager this one is at least drinkable. Not great, but drinkable. A richer color than most and a better malt flavor without the skuniness found in many of USA’s worst lagers.

I've been drinking Dick Yuengling's beer since college (Zeno's in State College, PA, used to have $2.00 pitchers of lager and porter circa 1990) and it seems fitting to break my 100 review cherry with this beer. I actually got Dick to sign a poster for me in college, and he was one hell of a nice guy. I have always liked this beer, and it is encouraging for me to find out that it is taking off rapidly, expanding down the East Coast to Florida. On to the review. This beer pours light amber, with a medium head. The taste is slightly malty, slightly sweet. It's like a hybrid amber/golden ale, even though it is a lager. The finish is smooth. I agree about the skunk factor. Yuengling still uses a lot of green bottles (they use brown also, but brown costs a little more). In this day and age, there is no excuse for using green bottles, and that is my only real complaint with this beer (the same complaint I have about Pilsner Urquell). If you sample it, buy it in the heavy cardboard case (brown bottles). As a bonus, this beer continues to be one of the more affordable good beers in the world, and it kicks the shit out of Coors, Miller, and Budweiser. Try it....I guarantee you'll like it. It's one of the beers I have when I'm having more than one. Thanks for reading, and I'll see y'all at 200. DocLock

ManVsBeer (10795) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle @ Buddy’s Crab House & Oyster Bar, Surf City, North Carolina. Amber with a carbonation and no head. Standard lager with a more malty nose than taste.
