They probably should have mixed the Porter with the Chesterfield Ale.
The Chesterfield is pretty good, it used to be better when it was $13 a case. I am not sure how much it is now, haven't had it in years. The Porter is ok, reminds me of many of the non-descript micros floating around out there, a little weaker than most, but drinkable. I don't think I have ever had the premium.

hmmm, i grew up in yuengling at college, i thought it was pretty good. I suppose that's why i am getting into home brewing, to make really awesome beer. That and chemical engineer + likes beer = home brewing. Not a real big stretch.

I wouldn't go that far...it's good for what it is, cheap party/bar/bbq beer that's got more flavor than your typical BMC product. But most residents do love it for what it is...

I suspect the Premium is fairly equivalent to a BMC. The problem with the Yuengling brewery is that they're more of a small-time macro than a micro. They use "corn grits" in probably every style... which tells me they come from a foundation of cost-cutting (which is what makes BMC, BMC) rather than the integrity of beer we homebrewers usually look for. (Not there is anything inherently wrong with using corn.)

$2.00 Liters at lunch of Yuengling during school and did not make it back to class a few times! Ahh the old days! Always a pint waiting for me back east at my local pub.

As someone who grew up in the Philly area, and appreciates good beer, Yuengling lager is -- in my opinion -- nasty. It just has this funky taste to it that I absolutely do not like. I'd almost rather drink a silver bullet. In fact, if someone had a Coors in one hand and a Yuengling in the other, I'd pick the Coors.

I haven't had the Porter, Chesterfield, or Premium in a very long time, but I don't remember them being particular stand-outs.

I worked with somebody who drank it in FL a few years back with his dad all day long. When they went to pay the bill it was over $300. Apparently they considered it an "import" and charged premium for it. I don't think it's bad for a major brew. I used to sneak this stuff into the dorms since I refused to drink the typical college Natty.

$50 a case in GA? Hell I could buy it up here for $20 a case and ship it down there for less making a small profit.

Side note... word has it that a couple of years ago the local Bud salespeople were asking local bars to give out a Bud instead of the Yuengling Lager when people would walk up asking for a "lager". It never happened and that is why whenever you walk into a bar up here and ask for a "lager" your getting Yuengling.

the local billboards here in the area now advertise "Yuengling.............Lager's first name"
