MMm. A sentimental favorite - I first encountered this one on a Pennsylvania road trip about fifteen years ago, before Craft Brewing has reached the happy condition of these modern times, when it was a bit more difficult to find brews that showed off a local character.

Back in the day, I thought more highly of Yuengling than I do today - it still hasn't lost its starting position if I find myself somewhere on the Eastern Seaboard.

As with some others in this category, I find that Yuengling can finish a bit too far on the sweet end of the scale, and doesn't really have enough character to sustain interest beyond a nostalgic "Yep, I'm in Orlando, gimme a Yuengling" first beer.

But it is certainly refreshing.

Not a rockstar, but a great session lager for any occasion. It has a light body and crisp flavor but it is not pale or flavorless.

A favorite in Pennsylvania, but be forwarned: Do not order as a Yuengling in a Pennsylvania bar. You MUST order this as a lager, or risk being taunted mercilously.
