Isn't yuengling pretty light?
 
2012-07-17 11:32:38 AM
For a mass produced beer, Yuengling is pretty darn good. It's #2 on my list of breweries I wised had a Chicago distributor after Russian River.
 
2012-07-17 11:33:20 AM
came to praise Yuengling. that 19-year-old gots to chill.

Yuengling reminds me of Coors. Everyone said it was awesome, until distribution expanded and they could get it outside of Pennsylvania. Now, everyone treats it like run-of-the-mill swill, which it is.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. I pound swill on a regular basis.

I could see the violence had the 21 year old brought Odoul's, but Yeungling is one of the best Macrobrews around.
 
2012-07-17 11:39:45 AM
Wow, here the 21 yr old was trying to do the kid a solid by bringing him good beer and he gets KOd? That 19 year old needs a bottle of coors cracked over his head.

/Do they even put Coors in bottles? I only see it in crushed cans scattered around passed-out homeless dudes..

Yeungling just started selling here in Ohio a few months ago.

It's Ok. It's not as good as all the hype made it out to be.

That boy's got not taste at all. Let alone for beer.

I would have been pleased as punch to receive a case of Yeungling Lager.

/Hell, in Philly, it's simply "Lager". The very meaning and definition of what it is to be a Lager beer.

Yuengling is pretty good for an American mass-produced beer. It is hardly what one thinks of as a traditional lager though. On that score it is relatively flavorless. As far as the article goes, this 19-year old idiot should not be allowed to drink beer for the rest of his life. If you are underaged and ask someone who isn't to get you some beer, and he comes back with a decent beer instead of your precious Bud Light, he should be your personal hero.

Yueng Ling Regular Leaded? I wanted Yueng Ling Special Premium Unleaded beer , the beer that the Brew Master and his friends drink! You are disgrace to Li family, Son Number Two! Hang your head in shame!

I know Yuengling is American, but as the French say, it's all Chinese to me.

It's slightly better than Budweiser select. Black and Tan is good though. /Warsteiner dunkle drinker/

When you compare it to the other beers at its price point, it is. It's 33% cheaper than Iron City or Boston Lager, and less than half the price of River Horse or Sierra Nevada.

Think of Yuengling as the adult-version of PBR. It occupies the upper left-hand corner of the crazy (price)-hot (quality) curve.
 
2012-07-17 11:59:49 AM
Yuengling is a decent beer and is a staple round these parts (Lehigh Valley). Considering the alternatives for bars that usually carry Coors Light, Bud products, and Miller, "Lager" is a good alternative

And if any of you get to Pottsville or inthe vacinity you MUST do the tour. Awesome experience

2012-07-17 12:01:33 PM
I am not into the real dark heavy tasting beers. Yuengling strikes the right balance for me and it doesn't have that nasty funky aftertaste every Sam Adams beer I have tried has. An added bonus is all my firends drink Bud Light and seem to be deadly scared of any beer that has a hint of color to it, so they leave my Yuengling alone.
 
2012-07-17 12:02:28 PM
Yuengling kind of sucks. I realize it's mostly due to provinciality, but the reverence it gets here in Philly is kind of ridiculous.

Jon iz teh kewl: it's cause it was made in Pedoland (PA state)


The "Lehigh Valley" is in Pennsylvania as well, and Yuengling is nearly a local brewery to them at only 30 miles away.

davidphogan: Isn't yuengling pretty light?


I "grew up" on Lager and find it imminently drinkable in large or small quantities. It was also quite cheap back home, around $45/keg. However when it came to South Carolina, it was priced along with "Imports/Craft Brews" at $5 a glass and people found it "heavy." Crazy, huh? Anyhow, if you're planning on playing flip cup, beer pong, or some other chugging exercise it can be a bit heavy to some.

Yuengling Light Lager (not Premium Light for God's sake!) is the obvious compromise.
 
2012-07-17 12:08:22 PM
Yuengling is probably the worst beer out there. I do not know what is wrong with it, but I can't drink more than a few sips without getting a headache. If I continue drinking, the headache increases. I can not even catch a slight buzz off the stuff. If I ever wanted to stop drinking completely, I would only allow yuengling in my house. Crappy, dirty swill.

Give me some Pater 6 or Prior 8, and I'm a happy man.

[csb]Yeungling in the (beer only) fridge (friends call it the Beer-idge) right now, along with a sixer of Abita Amber, a couple of bottles of Miller (the Champagne of Beers!), some Sprechers and Leinenkugels bottles left from the last trip up to WI-land, two Hoplantas, a couple of Fuller's ESBs left, one bottle of Rogue dead guy, a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, a Sunner Kolsch, and a Yazoo Hop Project that has some funk at the bottom of the bottle and I'm wondering if that's supposed to be that way. The Yazoo Dos Perros last night was great though.[/csb]

I'll grab a cold Yeungling more often than anything when I'm hot and want "cold. beer. now!". It's not terrible.

Would you play flip cup with a 10% ABV, lovingly-crafted beer like that? 19-year-olds aren't sitting around appreciating sh*t... that isn't the time in life for such pursuits.
 
2012-07-17 12:15:25 PM
I grew up in PA and moved to AZ for school and ended up staying here. I miss Yuengling tremendously. I go home about once a year, and one of the first things I do when I arrive is go get a black & tan on tap. Yum.
 
2012-07-17 12:17:42 PM

Damn. Too late again.

What about a "lighter" beer.

I love most every kind of beer aside from the rice/corn-filler mass-produced stuff. But there are summer days hanging out on the shore where I'd like something that's dry and tasty, not too hoppy, and doesn't get me farked up too fast.

Right now all I can find is Sam Adams "Light", which is a bit thin, but so far the best example of what I'm looking for. I tried Yuengling "Light" and there's something about the hops that Yuengling uses that makes things taste a bit skunkier than I prefer (I suppose I could get used to it).

Saranac had a "light" for a while that wasn't too bad, but I can't find it anywhere anymore. They *do* make a great Kolsch, though, and I hope I can still dig up a case of that at the specialty store. In fact, thier Summer pack also has a "Session" IPA and Hefeweizen that are pretty good too. But maybe a tad too strong for daytime; I like them for evening wind-down.

Can anyone recommend maybe a "Session" or Kolsch-y lighter summertime beer? Without all the "lemon zest" or "shandy" varieties please (I like them okay, but, like with *extreme* hops, that grows tiresome after a while).
 
2012-07-17 12:18:57 PM
The recently, locally introduced Yuengling is hipster brew to be seen posing with here in Cincinnati. Somewhat the same effect applies to Pabst Blue Ribbon, which actually tastes better and is cheaper. The dirt-poor artist-y types buy crap like Milwaukee's Best in bulk.
 
2012-07-17 12:19:21 PM
Went to college in Philly, never got why people liked Yuengling.
When it went into wider distribution, still never got why people liked Yuengling.

Literally the only beer I ever puked from a single serving of. I had a Sam Adams that tasted like men's cologne, once, but there is something evil in Yuengling that kills me. Not an off flavor, just a 'tastes like every grocery store cheap beer' flavor.

/Now on drugs that make all beer make me puke, but that's not the same.

i get yeungling at publix in florida
it's usually cheaper than bud or miller or whatever

i think they had a brewery location in tampa or something at some time

The way people describe this beer, you would think it's the mythical beer from Beerfest.

I doubt it even comes close to your local microbrewery.
