12oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Reviewed from notes (even though they're probably not even necessary at this point, given my exposure and sheer amount of sessions with this brew).
A: A rich and clear amber color, with a very thin white head that leaves little-to-no-lacing down the glass. The color and clarity are very nice, but this one really suffers from terrible head retention.
S: Overall pretty clean and light. Some mild hop aroma, light grains, and a solid slightly toasted malt. A very understated hint of citrus becomes somewhat apparent as the beer warms up. While not offensive, this isn't really one you'll want to sniff for too long.
T: A light dash of hop/citrus that gets rounded out (perhaps a little too) quickly by some sweet malts, grain, and a touch of cracker-like breadiness.
M: Smooth, light-bodied (but noticeably fuller than light lagers), with a crisp carbonation. This one goes down oh-so-easily on a hot day.
O: Being from Pennsylvania, if you go to bar (namely one that doesn't specialize in craft brews) and ask for a lager, a cold Yuengling is what you'll get. I'll be the first to admit that I am 100% okay with drinking this one. Most of my buddies don't go to craft bars, so Yuengling is typically my savior from the BMC light beers. Take Yuengling for what it is: a basic lager that is light years ahead of most macros in quality and drinkability.

I like this beer I drink it as my everyday stand by beer. American owned and always consistent taste and quality for a big brewery.
Good tasting everyday beer I like to stay away from the big beer companies.
American owned means a lot to me and the big beer companies are no longer take pride in their beer unlike Yuengling which does...

A - on tap in a plastic cup at an outdoor hotel bar at Disney. The beer had very little visible carbonation, no head retention, and no lacing. People call it amber, but I think it looks more like rust.
S - very subtle toasted malt smell.
T - maybe it is the plastic cup talking, but I'm not a fan of this one
Yes it has some flavor to it, but bad flavor in my opinion.
M - watery up front with a kind of gritty sensation. The finish is not clean and leaves me with a residual funkiness.
O - not a fan, and I think this beer would be rated much lower without all the rampant homerism from the PA residents.
Serving type: on-tap
