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.

I can't get "Lager" where I live so when I'm in a region where I can, I drink it like it's my job.

Floral, slightly caramelly sweet malt aroma, with notes of toasted bread. There's a metallic note, along with light green apple. Flavor reveals that metallic note, acetaldehyde, and banana, underlying throughout. Toasted notes dominate the finish. Upfront, there's a light caramel sweetness. Lots of off flavors, but more characterful than most macros.
