Pours a little darker than most american lagers. Aromas of corn, hops, and you know the rest. Flavor is a little more pronounced in this lager. Just a bit more flavor than most. beerbomb (239) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2006
In the pale lager catagory-this is definitely a way to say youre movin on up. Yueng is a step above the usual macro but still nothing special if youre looking for quality. Aroma is strange-metallic corn and malt--flavor is about the same. If youre facing a decision in trying this-you might as well-it is a staple, affordable beer to many and it has its place in mid-atlantic history and culture; taste is another story.

When I travel to North Carolina I can pick this up for about $4.49 a six pack. It is refreshing in the summer humidity of NC. Pours thin, little aroma, light malt/corn flavour with very little hop finish. (Much better than lemonade, and after all, water is for taking a bath, so this fills the bill when thirsty, and it is much better than local Chapel Hill brewpub offerings!) murawski (160) - USA - APR 28, 2006
While this is one of my favorite "working man’s" beers in the world, I had to be realistic with the rating. PA’s finest lager is such a classic, but it’s flavor and palate don’t stack up against the other fine ales I have rated during the past year. Yuengling beats out Budweiser, Busch, Miller, Michelob, Pabst, Coors, Rolling Rock, etc. etc., so it actually deserves a higher rating. But I give it a 2.4 rating, for now. Cheers!

Bought this at a gas station in Birmingham, AL while I was attending a wedding. 12 oz. bottlePours a amber/golden volor with a foamy white head. The nose is a slight malt texture with pine needles, and a skunky texture similar to Classic German Pilseners. Flavor is bitter with very slight hoppiness to it, but overall rather watery. Palate is bitter and everso slightly stinging. It’s alright nothing special but better than some other regular Pale Lagers. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Poured an off white head with big bubbles at side of glass. Dark amber/ light copper appearance. Notes of hay and sweet grain. Somewhat sweet grain flavor with some trailing spiciness on the finish. Generally the same price as the big macrobrew lagers but clearly superior. cmtm14 (6) - USA - AUG 14, 2006 does not count
Good for pounding beers... not much else... sweet aroma... slightly sweet and slightly bitter taste... MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
A Sim Rate (on tap at Solas, NYC): Smells like soggy clothes when it’s been raining. Tastes a bit like bud with a slightly aley tinge. Crap palate. blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2006
This might be the definition of an average lager, although I think it’s below average.
Pours a clear iced-tea brown. A big fizzy head is gone in a blink. Aromas of grainy malt and light floral hops. Medium side of light on the palate. Obvious cereal malt presence with some mild hop bittering. The finish is not crisp or short, but it would serve this beer better.
