My rating is for the Tampa edition of Lager, bought and consumed in PA. My rating for the true Pottsville swill, bought and consumed in PA, would be much higher. My friends and family recently conducted a blind taste test by the camp fire. All agreed that the Tampa Lager has a rather skunky smell and taste compared to that from PA. And either Im quite unlucky when shopping for beer, or Yuengling does ship a lot of their Tampa products to PA, despite what was written in a recent Patriot News story (http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/20 One can tell where their Yuengling was brewed by examining the number code on the bottle / can / box... The first two numbers are the year, the next three numbers are the Julian day, and the next number is either a 1, 2, or 3. If its a 2, its from Tampa. (If you dont believe me, call the brewery - 570-628-4890.)

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2010 Bought 12 oz. bottle at Longwood gardens. The other choices there were Heineken and Amstel Light. Pours amber with a white foamy head. Looks good actually. Aroma of piney hops, grass and some grain. Watery on the palate, but somewhat tangy. In terms of flavor, well, I did not notice any. Definitely some earthy hops kick in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 Can. Pours copper color with retreating head. Grainy aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of caramel with earthy hop bitterness at the back. Adjunct laden. Goes down nicely. Drink it a lot but lets face it, its not the "good stuff".

On tap. Boring. Crisp taste, some malts, faint taste of hops. Better than the big macrobrews but not by much. Makes me glad I live on the west coast and theres usually something better on tap.

Pours a little darker than your average American lager. A little bit more taste as well. Pretty bland, but drinkable, smooth, unoffensive. Not awful, just not a lot there to take in.

Maybe this deserves a better rating? It is a very tasty lager actually, probably my favorite one. Pours an amber color with lacing along the top of the glass, not much aroma to it. Usually drink it out of the bottle. This is a favorite beer at friends places or just a night in. The taste is bland but not bad at all, a bit bitter with a kick.

Not as good as I had hoped, after seeing its style rating. Very little aroma. Clear amber appearance. and an abrasive grassy-metallic flavor.

Le liquide a une couleur ambre ple. Petite construction mousseuse sans grande tnacit. Le nez est faible sur des grains malts grills avec quelques traces fantomatiques de houblons herbeux. Le got est tout aussi similaire avec du malt sucr et des herbes mouilles. En bouche, le liquide est de faible corpulence et sa texture est, la limite, crmeuse. La finale se fait principalement sur des notes douces. Aucune prsence notable damertume derrire la langue. (Souvenirs de vacances from L.C.)

24 oz. can from Food Lion Carrboro. Ar: Mild aroma. Touch of maltiness. Almost no character, but not offensive. Ap: Light amber translucent pour with head that dissipated so quickly that I couldnt tell what color it was. Actually does leave some spotty lace. T: Moderately sweet but not as sweet as many other macro swills. A little bit of roastiness actually. Almost no hop character. If I try to imagine really hard I can pick up some bitterness. P: Thin, but thicker than a lot of macro swill. Carbonation is a bit softer than other macro swill as well. O: I kind of wanted to bash this beer, but its a pretty good version of macro swill. So far one of my favorite pale lagers, although that isnt saying much.
