Default Yuengling lager

Is now in Ohio and people are going bat **** crazy buying it. My son just raved about this and insisted that I HAD to try it. I just bought a 6 pack and am about three drinks into my first one. I am underwhelmed. It reminds me of a screwed up partigyle I made once minus the nasty after taste mine had. Don't get me wrong it is not awful beer and plenty drinkable. It is just that I was expecting to be blown away by how awesome it is.

It's good for the price and a nice peice of history but I can do without it. When compared to BMC it has a little more color and flavor so I'll give them that.

Yuengling has a nasty aftertaste to me, and is the absolute worst beer for thirst quenching in the summer. I'd rather drink Old Fizzywig on the Fourth of July than a 32 Yuengling!

I love the history behind it and would love to visit if ever in the area.

However, the first time I had it, all I could say was 'meh'. There's nothing wrong with it, but there's also nothing particularly notable about it either.

I was a big fan of it for a number of years, but something changed a few years ago it is not as good as it used to be. It is still better than BMC yes but not what was.

I enjoy it because it is American owned and brewed. I know tons of craft beers are as well but can't beat the local "Yuengs and Wings" deals at the local bar.

I drink it frequently. Never had a problem with it and it's always my go to on draft if there's nothing in the "craft" division wherever I'm eating.

i lived in PA for a long time and Yuengling was the beer on tap everywhere, i hated that strange aftertaste too and always wondered what makes it taste that way.

I agree. Tastes like drinking BMC from a cardboard container.

Couldn't beat $1 pints of it in college. It's alright as a BMC+, but nothing to rave over. It got me started into better beers.
