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.

Similar to the other comments here, I used to drink this one a lot in my youth and before I got into craft beer. This is my first time drinking it since I've been rating on BA. A nice and refreshing beer. Very clean taste and crisp on the tongue. Not much via aroma; perhaps a slight malt. However the taste has a good deal of character. Spicy, bready, malty and hoppy. A very pleasant change of pace beer.
