One of my staple session beers along with Pabst. Always a good choice as my first beer of the day, usually before dinner. Not one I'll drink later at night however when I normally enjoy premium brews, BUT...."Laaageeer" will always have a place in one of my two beer fridges. Enjoy!

Its Yuengling. Its drinkable, and smooth enough you could pound them back. Sweet and earthy taste, without anything on the nose and the mouthfeel of a macro. My go-to cheap beer.

My go-to "cheap" beer. A slightly sweet taste with a really nice finish, Yuengling is simply a good beer.

Poured from a bottle into a Lager glass. Date code is 0318, appears to have been bottled on the 031 day of 8 year.

Looks nice and clear with a light amber color, leaves a thin lacing that stays on the glass. So far, so good!

Has a very lightly sweet smell with some complexity to it. Maybe a little spicy and slightly earthy? Can't really describe it, except smells very nice.

The taste combines a light sweetness from the malt with a roasted malt/earthy flavor. The hops add a lightly spicy flavor with very little bitterness. Has a clean finish.

Has a medium/light mouthfeel. Not thin, but also not heavy at all. Easy to drink. Very user friendly.

Overall, this a nice easy drinking beer that goes extremely well with food. It is similar to a Vienna Lager or maybe an Amber Lager in style.

The original craft brew. I remember back in the awful 70's, that this was truly the best America had to offer. Still holds it's own with a slightly malty faintly bitter, thirst quencher. My go to when I want something simple and honest. Far better than any other AAL. For certain.

Served in mug, beer pours a very clear amber color. Lots of carbonation. Decent head that dissipates quickly into white lacing ring.

Bit of a breaddy smell.

Clean and refreshing taste, slightly sweet but not too much going on here.

Very easy drinking and sessionable. Goes down very smooth, no aftertaste.

It’s a quality lager. It’s in a middle ground where it’s not necessarily fair to put against micro crafts, but it’s not a typical watered down macro either. For the price, it’s worthwhile for the craft drinker that wants to have a good fridge stocker for parties and guests. Good overall lager.
