Great low cost straight up lager beer. Like Budweiser only actually good. They still sell it at a super low price in coal country in Pennsylvania because that's who supported them their first 160 years (it was basically a local brew in that area - didn't even make it down to Philly until they came out with Black and Tan). Awesome no bs session beer.

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.

Pours an orange/ dark yellow with a very fizzy head. The smell was pretty subtle with mostly toasted malt coming through, but also some citrus. The taste was pretty bland to be honest with the malt coming through at the end and not much to say about the beginning and middle. Soon coming to CT and everyone is amped for it, but I just can't seem to understand the hype.
