Good overall beer, goes down good and tastes good, cant ask for much more...
Ah, the pride of Philly and Philly Boy Roy. It has a corny frat basement smell and pours an amber clear extremely dehydrated urine color. The taste is musky, flat, and machiney, neither pleasant nor unpleasant. It is amenable to easy chugs. It is very mediocre and the owners are big Trumpkins so I will now go out of my way to avoid giving them money, but there are worse things out there. Good for a free beer ticket on company bowling night when Coors Light and Bud Light are the other options. junkyarddawg (12) - Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Appearance- amber, clear, white foam.
Aroma - caramel, grass, yeasty
Taste - Light bitterness, light sweetness
Palate - Light to Medium body. Smooth finish with touch of bitterness.
This is a solid American Lager. The bottle I tasted has a slight pungent, yeast smell, but surprisingly did not affect the taste. If you like hoppy beers, you probably will not like this one much. Good choice for those of us who like low bitterness. bjkusserow (2) - - OCT 20, 2017 does not count
America’s oldest brewery is very cool but the hype has to be the difficulty in buying it....not the taste. It’s below average at best.

This is my favorite beer. I want my beer to have a strong aroma. Most beers have no aroma, but when I open a Yuengling Traditional Lager I say "ahhhhh" before I ever take a sip. The aroma is strong and beautiful. The taste is smooth and not light and not heavy, I can drink almost any beer when eating, but not when drinking alone. But for this Yuengling Lager I just love pouring a glass and enjoy just the pleasure of drinking alone! This is not an average beer for me. This one is my favorite and so I wanted to write my first and only review to support it and counterweigh some of the reviews that think this is not a special beer. I can't believe people would want to drink a beer that did not have the great strong beer aroma of a true beer. gripweed57 (2806) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear, deep amber gold color with a light beige head. Earthy, toasted malt nose. Zesty sour hop flavor upfront. some dryness in the middle but the carbonation dominates the palate. Bitter finish and aftertaste. Good flavor but too gassy.

The bottle is green and they use a very pretty font. It is Americas oldest brewery in Pottsville, PA so that's pretty cool.

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.

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.
