See, I would have ordered an ale and then returned it after drinking half and saying... "This beer doesn't have any wheat in it. It's all Barley." Then order another... "This beer doesn't have any wheat in it either." After the third, I'd say... "Where are your all-wheat beers again?"

I went in to my LHBS a few months ago and Stan the main sales guy was shaking his head. A couple guys came in and wanted to buy equipment and supplies to make Bud Light. Stan told them... "It would be cheaper to buy it." They persisted and he finally said "I don't even know how to brew something as bad as Bud Light." I joked he should sell them a single light LME can and a pound of rice flakes, have them make a 5 gallon batch and then add an extra gallon of water after it finished fermenting.

Yuengling Lager is definitely my session beer. Even though I'm definitely a beer snob, I still probably drink more Yuengling Lager than any other single beer. It's the best low-cost beer for my $$$.

I'm not sure I've ever heard of someone that hated Yuengling, that had drank it fresh and under good conditions. Invariably they seem to be at the edges of Yuengling's distribution, old bottles (I really wish they'd stop using green glass for the Traditional Lager, light exposure is a serious problem), or from dirty lines.

I wouldn't claim that it's the absolute best beer ever made, but it's a damned fine brew, and cheap to boot. It's what I typically reach for if I'm not drinking my own beer.

No, keep your mind open about the style of beer. This particular brand is not worth buying.
