Default Yuengling- Who's tried it?

I'm just bored and curious who has tried Yuengling and what they thought about it. I've been drinking it for years and in my opinion its a decent beer, not the best but not the worst. Most of the time I find people like it but I have yet to find someone who says it's their favorite. I'm from PA about 2 hours from the brewery i went about 2 months ago and was a little unimpressed. Anyway i was curious what other people thought.

I started drinking it about 10 years ago, it was readily available in New Jersey. It's an okay, not great lager. Honestly, I think it used to be better before they started distributing more widely.

I agree. It used to be WAY better. Kinda watered down now in my opinion. Just sucks that i only get to have Yuengling when i come home to MD on leave (maybe once or twice a year).

If I'm out somewhere and it's BMC and Yuengling, I'll go for the Yuengling. I'd probably take a Sam over it though.
