This is a truly classic American beer. An obvious interpretation of the classic European pre-pilsner lager style beers(Yuengling has been in business since 1829, 13 years before the pilsner style first appeared), it has a feel that the big megabrewers simply have been unable to capture. My only disappointment with Yuengling is that it's not available in Illinois.

Hands down the best beer ever. I've had countless microbrews and domestics and there is no contest; Yuengling has the best drinkability and flavor of any beer available in the United States. If anyone rates this beer less than a 5 they're a beer snob and you should dismiss their opinion and try it for yourself.

Love this beer. This is my go to beer any day of the week. Easy to drink and is served mostly anywhere on the east coast.

Great lager with strong beer flavor. Very smooth with a clean finish.

This is the best Amber Lager I have ever had, and possibly the best lager period. The flavor profile is exceptional and very drinkable. There is nothing offensive or unpleasant about this brew.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes
