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.

Good cold and wet kinda beer, and can't really beat it at $17-$18 p/case after taxes.

Perfect session beer. Enough flavor to make it worth drinking. But cheap and easy to pound. I always try to keep Yuengling's in the fridge at all times, good beer for when guests come over. Nobody doesn't like Yuengling and it's cheap.
