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.

NOTE: I compare all other beers to Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale; there may be better out there, but many that are worse.
This gives a 2 finger head.
The color is a beautiful copper amber.
The aroma is a nice malt with a touch of hops.
The taste is malty up front with a slight citrus/pine toward the back of the palate.
Nice blended, rich bodied malt/hops mid palate with a finish of malt, citrus hops.
This is a nice Lager, far better than Bud, Bud Light or Busch, but not quite as crisp and refreshing as Sierra Nevada.

I live in Kentucky, so my options on are limited! However I lived in Munich for a time that made me appreciate beer a lot more! I was a beer guy prior to living there, but was ignorant on what made a truly great beer! A neighbor handed me one of these (actually 3) and I was amazed at how it reminded me of beers that I had drank in Germany! A true lager, which is what I tend to look for! And this beer for the price is truly exceptional for my taste. Sadly it is a regional beer only available in a few states! But some of those states border Kentucky! ROAD TRIP!
