I had the pleasure of trying Yuengling Bock on-tap at local Chambersburg watering hole The Cottage.

The draft was served in a "true" pint; the beer was darker than expected and not very foamy. The dark, murky beer was an unexpected surprise from Yuengling.

The beer was thick and malty, like any good bock, and had a very strong caramel flavor. It was smooth and didn't seem anything like a typical Yuengling; it had depth and character. I hope that folks who enjoy the Yuengling Lager will try it and discover the bock style in the way its meant to be enjoyed.

The last quarter of my pint was a bit heavy but I was drinking lighter beer earlier in the evening. All of the guests at my table tried a pint, and many ordered a second (and a third). It seemed to be universally enjoyable.

A recommended try on a new style from an established brewer; America's oldest. Chalk this one up along with Yuengling's other under-rated styles: Black & Tan and Porter.

From what I can remember from having this beer it was ok, it was not my favorite beer. But the taste was not all that bad. For a cheaper beer I would say that this is a decent beer. For myself I liked it but I like bock beer. This was not my favorite back beer but it was a decent beer.
