One of the best around for price and style. A winner. Glad it's more well-distributed regionally now. I understand that the formula was changed a few years back, though. The Yeungling I drank during trips to Pennsylvania over ten years ago seemed more like an aal

Great tasting traditional lager from PA that tastes great. Very light and pretty inexpensive. A bit darker than a light lager, and keeps cool in the bottle. I've never been a huge fan of the bottle design, but what's on the inside is what counts. I've found that this is a great beer to start off the night with, or as a chill beer to just have a couple and feel good.

Man I didn't care for this. It's like Killian's but "moreso" and I mean that in a bad way. Kinda like tea-beer.

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.
