I've had this beer several times, once on tap, once in a can, but mostly in bottles. I think it resembles busch, which I don't really care for. All this is besides the fact that I'm from Cleveland and this beer is made near Pittsburgh, ewww. Go Browns!

I bought a case of the lager for $20 on a recent trip in to PA. The price is pretty equivalent to your run of the mill light beer, so a great deal for a solid brew.

The best part about the Yuengling lager is that it is both not a garbage run of the mill lager/light beer nor a craft beer. It is just a good solid brew that goes well with just about anything.

I think one of the previous posters summed it up pretty well. The brew has a pretty good following because it is a good solid brew. It is not a fancy limited edition craft brew. It's just solid. And there is nothing wrong with that.

Bottle had a random happy hour today.

Pour: Bottle, but a good looking bottle.

Smell: Biscuit sweetness with a light, light floral hop presence.

Taste: Bready sweetness that really lacks much of a hop character, but does have some citrus bitterness barely woven in.

Mouthfeel: really light and carbonated, but is really refreshing.

Overall: A good lager, and at least its American.
