Ahhh! "Yuengling" a gr8 Chinese Beer...hehe;) I have a lot of Relatives in the gr8 state of Pennsylvania,and when I was just a wee lad,this Beer was always sitting in the fridge,and usually there were cases stacked up in the Garage,back then this beer was not widely Available outside the PA Area,and was a real working mans Beer,really big with Coal Miners who usually did not have a ton of money,but worked their ass off,and after a 12 hour shift,an Ice cold Yuengling [more like many ice cold Yuenglings] @ the Local watering hole must have tasted pretty damn good,I always remember these Hard working men as Hero's of a sort,working in such brutal,Ungodly Dangerous Conditions breathing in Coal dust all day long,but never complaining about it..they did not mind doing it, because in some areas that was all there was work wise,and they did this so they could support their families~
All this gave these guys a huge sense of Pride,and Yuengling Brewery has that same kind of Pride when it comes to making their Beers,there is not one other American Macro brewed Beer that taste anything like a Yuengling,it is VERY Distinctive,and taste more like a Euro Lager then a standard American brewed Macro Lager,and IMHO,it is more or less Impossible to beat flavor wise in it's price range,Dollar for Dollar,you get a very well crafted Macro Lager for your money with Yuengling,and I have to give this Brewery a LOT of Respect,a lot of Respect Indeed,because I think Yuengling is in a league all it's own~Cheers!

From my attempt at a non-biased perspective, it's too good to be called "okay", but not good enough to be "great." From my biased perspective as a Pennsylvanian, I'm proud to have grown up around such a fine old-school, family-owned, Pennsylvania-made lager.
Nice appearance. I know green bottles are supposed to be possibly skunkier, but Yuengling has a classy look and a nice logo. It's got an American bald eagle on it, man. Amurika! This stuff just screams, "Drink me on Independence Day while booting unionists in the face and listening to Merle Haggard!"
Upon pouring, it is immediately distanced from Budweiser and other mass-market lagers by its deep amber color. The head is not terribly impressive, but it's decent, and honestly, this is, again, a decent no frills beer.
It smells hoppy and citrus-y, but not overwhelmingly so (or not strong enough; your choice).
Yuengling Traditional tastes good. Look - a common American lager with noticeable hops! Fairly dry, but very, very creamy. Rather malty. Not much of an aftertaste. Very clean-cut stuff. Crisp, crisp, crisp.
This beer will never knock one's socks off, but the thing with Yuengling is that it isn't trying to be anything other than what it is; a decent beer that is pleasant to drink. Though it's made to be no frills, it's really quite a nice beer.
My most recent drinking experience was from a bottle, poured into a glass, but I personally seem to prefer this beer from the tap.

One of the first beers I remember Actually Enjoying. These days, on my trips back to PA, I find myself drinking Yuengling out of a can. I grew up drinking Yuengling in a bottle, but the can seems to have a better taste. It may be time for Yuengling to switch to a Brown Bottle. Summer in a Can.
