    That is your opinion and I think most don't agree with it. Why do you describe as it being bad? Their Black and Tan is pretty good and cheap to boot. Their lager is dirt cheap and has way more flavor than typical AAL. What exactly are you looking for in a cheap beer?

    Sounds good. I'm smack, dead-center of their distribution area. I hope it makes it on tap, too.

    Of course it is my opinion. Their flagship is undrinkable and it may have more flavor, but the quality of that flavor is downright offensive. I've given it a chance many many times, and I'm no beer snob. Their porter is garbage. Lord Chesterfield is another pile of shit. Black and Tan? Not me.

    Saying their lager is "way more" flavorful than a typical AAL is stretching it. Slightly more flavorful is more accurate. All the core Yuengling beers are very watery. The best one by far was the Summer Wheat and I think its because its basically a copy of Hoegaarden which is a good beer to copy.

    Frankly, I do not think there is anything to 'hear' here.

    Carry on!

    Cheers!

    This is pleasing. I thought "pilsner as is MILLER pilsner" but the description makes me feel otherwise.

    No. It is my understanding that it will be initially released to Central PA (e.g., Harrisburg). I suspect that it will be a few months before this beer makes it to the Philly area market.

    Cheers!

    Agreed. Growing up in coal country (NEPA), this was the beer. Literally. It was high class per se. I don't drink it often and I can't say I drank it a lot growing up (maybe more at bars when I was home from college), but when I do it brings back memories of being back up there.

    Just an FYI - it appears Breskis in Harrisburg has this already. It is listed as $22.99 for a case of cans. This is the same price for Lager at Breskis, so I assume it will be equivalent to the price you would pay for a case of Lager at your distributor.

    I just watched this video about the recent history of Yuengling and I enjoyed it. I thought that perhaps other BAs would enjoy it as well.

    Cheers!

    Ehh . . . Yuengling is Yuengling. You know what you're getting when you buy it and, IMO, any of their brands are better than any macro equivalent, hands down. Crushed 8 cans of Lager (leftover from our Christmas party) during the Super Bowl without much thought before a little more than half of a Stone 12-pack. Good session, all things told.

    My verdict on this one is at 7.49 for a 6 pack, I dont see how you can do better at that price point. Of course you can probably get better craft beer at that price depending on where you live, but where I live there isnt any craft beer that's comparable in that price range. Id probably give it a C or C+ range. Its tasty and malt forward but the hops are very muted. Much better alternative to a Budweiser which is around the same price I think. Me personally Id rather spend the extra 50 cents and get a sixer of the Founders Solid Gold Lager instead however Ive only seen that beer around here in 15 packs.

    Nobody in the above video explicitly used the word "refreshment" or "refreshing" but they sure seemed to be expressing that sentiment.

    Cheers!

    I was surprisingly pleased with their Hefe, hopefully the pilsner will result in the same.

    @JackHorzempa For what's worth, I brought 12-pack of Golden Pilsner to a family gathering in mid-June and it went over very well with my father-in-law and brother-in-law. Since then both of them have bought cases of Golden Pilsner for their houses.So, I'd say we were right that Golden Pilsner is aimed at Yuengling's core customers. I like Golden Pilsner better than the Traditional Lager too, so I'm glad to have it as a beer option for family dinners/events.

    Looking forward to having that option available here. Reps tell me sometime in August.

    I had a can at a Philles game a few weeks ago and was very disappointed. Extremely middle of the road pilsner and a huge let down considering this basically replaced Summer Wheat.

    Ive had it a few more times since my favorable initial impression and unfortunately it just got worse and worse for me each time. A C- would be generous IMO.

    For me it comes down to the price in comparison to how it tastes, it's a great value for what it is. I would never choose this over a Prima or Pikeland, though.

    And I do miss Summer Wheat.

    Was able to try it this past week. Didn't think it was that good tbh. Had it right before a Yuengling Lager and it made Lager taste like an exceptional beer imo.
