For macro lager it doesn't get any better , there are actually some decent grain and hop flavors for what it is ..

If a place doesn't have craft brew or I'm just being cheap yuengling is one of my go to macros.

On tap:
Pours a nice amber, clear, with a sheet-lace producing thin white head.

Nose is light grain, mildly sweet, with an equal amount of spicy bitterness.

Taste is similar to nose, fairly smooth, medium light. An amber beer maltiness without tons of flavor, lightly spicy bitterness is refreshing for a staple beer.

From the can, it pours amber with a modest head. The head lasts a bit and leaves lacing. Some hops and bread in the nose. The breadiness comes through in the mouth. Nice American lager!
