Yuengling is my go-to beer of choice. It is a great all-around lager. In fact, where I grew up (in eastern PA) the words "Yuengling" and "lager" are pretty much interchangeable. I'm happy that it is now brewed in Florida as well, though I have concerns that the taste will be different - possibly due to the water used. Will have to see.

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!

As much as I love to expand my beer horizons with craft beers at times, Yuengling Traditional Lager is always my go-to beer. Where I live, if you ask for a lager, you get a Yuengling by default. It has a great combination of taste and smell, and it is a relatively smooth beer to drink, which makes for an easily drinkable beer without sacrificing flavor. Every time I meet people that do not yet have Yuengling in their part of the country, they always want to bring some home.
