Does America's Oldest Brewery hold the record for the world's best cheap lager?

On tap at a Chili's. Yeah. Nothing special.

Yuengling is the go-to beer when you're at a neighbor's backyard grilling BBQ session and you want something that tastes like beer and lets you feel like you can keep some of your dignity, but you don't feel like bringing in your own bottle of obscure ABA, ESB or Belgian and explaining to everyone why your beer is thicker than molasses and smells like the roasting room of the Ye Olde Coffee Shop downtown.

A: Light a lager. In fact, it's a lovely deep amber that is translucent and light but couldn't be confused for what some people affectionately call "water."

S: Decent, somewhat malty, but nothing extreme.

T: I like a Yuengling. It's good, light, I can knock back a ton of them and yet it still tastes like beer. It's got quite a bit of malty goodness with some grain and hop undercurrents. Crisp and dries quickly in the mouth. Lots of carbonation which you want with something that doesn't have a ton of subtle flavors.

M: Medium-to-high carbonation, some hops, some sweet aftertaste, not very thick or otherwise interesting in the consistency department.

O: Like I said before, this one is a go-to for a cheap beer when you have to beer and can't find something interesting. Leagues behind other basic craft beer staples like Fat Tire, Boston Lager or maybe even Magic Hat (though I'm not a big fan of that beer's fruit flavors - but I digress) while being a thousand times better than your average macrolager. I'd even pick this one over some macro imports like Newcastle, Beck's, Stella or Carlsberg.
