Hate to say it, but before I started drinking my own brews I used to buy their porter all the time. The stuff was so ridiculously cheap and being a college student, I could buy a few cases of it and not get mad if my buddies drank most of it. And it wasn't too bad.
Though now that the local Ommegang beers are cheap ($4 for a 750ml) I wont be buying Yuengling anymore.

Lion's head, although it has been a while since I had it. Very cheap. Obviously depends on your definition of major.

I don't think it's healthy to be drinking out of a urinal.
That's what she said.

Annapolis Home Brew has a clone that is much better. Originally the lager was much better than it is right now, taste varies a lot one case is good one bad one mediocre ever since they went to a concentrated brew technique, new brew master and cheaper extract additions. used to be one of our favorites since I can pretty much roll down the hill to the brewery. now I brew my own and try many others. My father in law used to drink it exclusively and now drinks amstel light or MGD or Sam adams summer ale and has no use for the lager anymore. The annapolis clone is close to the old as it has a lot more flavor and a little more hops. I brewed a batch in May with barely "lagering" (50 degrees or higher) and am going to do it right this winter with lagering it to below 40 in my root cellar
