This one is a staple here at Penn State! KNUG, fellow Penn State boozer, is right on down below! This one is perfect anytime, reasonably priced, and a great experience!

The bottle is green and they use a very pretty font. It is Americas oldest brewery in Pottsville, PA so that's pretty cool. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Clear amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of grain, bread, caramel, earth and light cardboard. Taste is very light sweet and very light bitter with notes of grain, caramel and cardboard. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Mediocre.

DOC: 7/24/17

2015 BJCP Category: 2B International Amber Lager

AROMA: More noticeable malt presence than pale adjunct lagers, with hint of caramel sweetness or nutty character. Corn is quite evident, but not overly sweet or cereal-like. The faintest presence of spicy/earthy hops. Clean fermentation profile. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Beautiful copper/reddish color (8-12 SRM). Clear body. Fairly large white fluffy foam retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Fairly simply palette with generic base malt dominating. A noticeable sweetness from specialty malt, but not a sweet beer per se. Corn tastes authentic and complements palette. Not sweet, but not gritty or oily either. Minor spicy/earthy hop flavor and low bitterness. Clean fermentation. Slight malty aftertaste. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-high carbonation. Smooth, comfortable, refreshing and quaffable. Easily sessionable at 4.4% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: More to it than the average adjunct lager and a good example of the style. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 40/50

Bottle, on British Virgin Islands. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Drinking this on occasion is nice, but once you get tired of it, the sight of it alone will make you physically ill. I feel it’s cheaply brewed. It finally came to Louisiana and I haven’t drank it in awhile. Now if I drink or even look at one, I get sick.

Inexpensive beer with a light flavor. Not very hoppy. Smooth texture. Nice Pennsylvania brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great local Pennsylvania lager. I've visited the brewery and taken the tour. Very traditional and if you've ever indeed in Pennsylvania you love Yeungling. Good tasting, no bitter aftertaste, refreshing, and not made like the mass produced lagers. A great go to lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Respect the beer, just not into it or care for it. Get sick of them after few. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Beautiful color. Good mouthfeel. Sweet caramel flavor. Sort of watery finish. Easy to drink a lot of.
