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.

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.

It beats piss water beer anyday. It's enjoyable and is a step up for anyone who isn't drinking beer just go get plastered. Definitely a great casual beer-drinker beer.
