The Pennsylvania equivalent of the West Coast’s Henry Weinhardt’s Private Reserve. A very basic lager, but with way more flavor and depth than Budweiser. Has an annoyingly metallic flavor, but not bad if you are out of money and want to drink a few brewskis at a party. drewcifer85710 (158) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Nice for a lager, which is not quite my favorite style. Smooth and a little sweet. Nothing at all offensive. LordHedgehog (144) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Pushes the borderline between macroswill and microbrewery. Mix a Bug Light with a high-quality brew, and I'd expect it to taste like this. Probably good to give as gifts to friends that haven't yet disocvered beer beyond BMC, but don't bother buying it for yourself. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 4, 2004
bottle: im surprised by the ratings here. this is your average lager. could be a notch of the huge macros. but not much better. bland taste thin watered down beer with not much going on except a bad aftertaste. stay away from it kids, there are many other that are better.

Totally missed the boat on this thing, I guess. Wow, nothing really here. Nice dark color, but that’s about it. Smells of rice and corn or something like that. I feel like I’m drinking a lager dropped in a farmyard.

Use to be hard to come by, now it’s everywhere. Really liked it at first, now all I get is a strange sweet taste out of it, not too enjoyable. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Amber beer with hardly any head. Smells like a macro. Taste is just a bit better than a macro. First sip was astringent but it smoothed out quickly, and then it was just bland and watery. Not even worth the $4.99 (tax-free) I paid for a six pack at the navy base. Might be ok if it was a really hot day and you had a big lawn to mow.

Not much to say hear, tastes just like the light but a little bit thicker, im not a big fan of yuengling but its drinkable and not offensive like the cheap american crap. weepingsuds (223) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Tap. Better than Budweiser should be the slogan, but not much better than that. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
I’ve had this one plenty so I finally decided to rate. Typical macro lager look and smell. Taste was better than most macros, but still below par. Definately poundable. I am a transplant to PA, so I don’t buy all the nonsense that native Pennsylvanians spout about this beer. I understand being partial to your home-state brews, but the rediculous nonsense about Yeungling being so wonderful is just that - nonsense.
