This beer is like sitting in the cheap seats at World Series game 7. It is what it is. You get to be there but part of you wishes you had just watched it from your old recliner. Ok taste, real easy to drink, but no "character". Will I drink it again, ya I love beer. Am I counting the hours down until then, nope.
Serving type: can

3.4/5 rDev -0.3%

Dark for any lager it's has a nice brown to amber coloring with thick head that had decent retention.
The scent is rather stale, not offensive but nothing special. Sweet caramel maltiness, with touches of dry cracker to metallic malt.
I like Yuengling, perhaps for posterity, but it has excellent qualities. The taste is a touch roasted, with caramel malt sweetness. There's some cracker or toasted bread and an ever so light hop finish.
I'll be the first to admit that old habits are hard to break but I feel like Yuengling has some real craft beer qualities despite the price.
Serving type: on-tap
