Decent brew. A cut above most other mass produced lager's yet still cheap ($10.99 for a twelver in my area). Malty sweet up front with a hint of hoppage on the back end and it's very consistent. One thing I will note to those who aren't familiar with this classic - BUY IT IN CANS. For some reason the bottle ruins this beer. I can't stress that enough. If you buy it in bottles, you are guaranteed to think it tastes awful. If you're standing in the beer section right now looking this beer up (which I've done many times over the years with countless different brews) go ahead and give it try - just make sure to BUY CANS!

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a frosted shaker pint glass. Clear dark amber color, with a thick long-lasting white head. Nice aromas and flavors of caramel and dark bread, with a floral overtone and a whole lotta skunk. This could be pretty solid if it weren't for the green bottle. Word to the wise.

Living jn Philly I grew up on this shit. My taste for it has changed over time as my pallet has evolved. Its gone from my favorite beer to one I find about average. But, being Americas oldest brew it deserves respect. Around Philly we all just order it by asking for "lager". It will always have a special place in my heart and everyone should try it but my rating is fair.

Decent copper color, weak flat head, tinny, biting taste. Lousy beer.

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.
