Probably my favorite standard lager, this one is found everywhere in my area including on tap in all the bars. It's relatively smooth and works well with any food at the ballpark. It's also cheaper than most competitors.

This beer is no way "premium". Stick to the traditional lager

For longer than I have been leagally able to enjoy beer, people in my town refer to beer as all inclusively consisting of 1 of 2 options: "Lager or Premium" with both referring to Yuengling.

Cult-like brand loyalty and historical reference are the only things this beer has going for it. Slightly inferior to its "Lager" counterpart, Premium is the slightly shittier, sweeter version of the two.

Yuengling Premium Beer brew by Yuengling Brewery, with an ABV of 4.40% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is sweet with grains and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste it is sweet with grains and malts. Not bad but not great. Yuengling Premium Beer has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel of Yuengling Premium Beer is nice,clean and smooth. There is nothing bad about this brew. I like how this brew goes down smooth. Overall I'm giving Yuengling Premium Beer a 4.25 out 5. This brew is a nice drinking brew. Nothing fancy but nothing cheap. I would buy this brew again. Thank you Yuengling Brewery
