A few nostalgia points for this one - it actually has character though it may be a cantakerous one. stormking (23) - Cuddy, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2002
If Yeungling is considered a Macrobrew, then it is among the best AMERICAN macrobrews around. Has a faint hop, a little maltiness, no real distinctive flavors that would draw me to it if someone described it to me. Inexpensive, good beer for the common tongue.

golden amber color with a medium head. the aroma is slightly sour and woody with some sweet notes underneath. the flavor is bitter, yet slightly sweet and malty with a good balnce of hops. tastes very similar to the mass produced beers we all love so much (HaHa) Ludwig (60) - USA - APR 10, 2003
This is a very average American brewed Lager. Not one that I would recommend, there is too much missing. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
America's Oldest Brewery? Hmm. Stinker. Amber color with weak white head. Grainy, grassy aroma. Thin body and a watery, skunky taste. Totally forgetable.

It looks tasty, but unfortunately, that's about all this one has going for it. Taste is reminiscent of grapefruit juice.. you figure it out. In my opinion, highly overrated. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2004
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. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Fairly slight aroma, some toasty caramel malt sweetness. Light-medium copper color, clear, with a slight, sparse head. Profile is again largely grainy, toasty caramel sweetness but there’s a small amount of fruity hop bitterness towards the end to help round out the flavor. Palate is bubbly and crisp, light-medium bodied. Perhaps not the most impressive beer I’ve tried recently but one I had been curious about for quite some time. Thanks to Emily for the opportunity to sample the famous Yuengling’s at last. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2004

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 Funny, I can honestly drink their "light" version of this better than the beer itself. It’s certainly better than the other macros it’s paired with in the grocery store, but in present company, that doesn’t say very much. It pours rich in color and has a diminishing head to lace the glass. The aroma is hard to pinpoint, but there’s a fine line between floral and skunky. This beer just isn’t memorable. Everything about is completely average. Locals swear that this offering smells and tastes just like the Schuylkill River water that runs nearby. Let’s just say it doesn’t necessarily enhance the flavor. Medium bodied, mild hops and a watery mouthfeel pretty much sum it up. "Very" middle of the road IMHO. I guess that’s why I don’t choose it by trade.
