Being from eastern PA, I love Yuengling. It is my go to beer. "Lager" as we simply call it everywhere in the region is practically part of our DNA. Flavorful, pretty easy drinking, while this is not my favorite from the brewer, I enjoy every beer that Yuengling makes.

This is one of the beers I have at my house all the time. It has a strong beer flavor, not watered down at all. In my opinion this is the way lagers should taste. As with all my reviews I think the bottom line is always would I buy it again and the answer is a definite yes.

Very tasty beer at the price of $18 with tax per 24 pack. Really good beer only found in the Eastern us and Florida. It's the best lager for the price you won't be disappointed!!!

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

An averagely decent lager and an institution. Looks clear and light amber. Head disappears. Smells funky. A little sticky, but also thin.

All my East Coast friends rave about this beer (probably some nostalgia contributing). Yuengling comes across as just your average cold one that you can always count on, but it's nothing special. I try to drink some whenever I'm visiting the East Coast since I can't buy it here in Las Vegas.
