Ok, what`s up with this beer? 

 

The brewery decided to start distributing in Massachusetts using a modest advertising campaign.  Apparently its available in only 13 or 14 states....

 

I picked up a 12-pack thinking I found a new beer to abuse, er enjoy....

 

Unfortunately. the only flavor I can compare it to is a 50/50 mix of Budweiser and Coors...yuck.... 2.0 Stars out of 5.0

Not available in CT, but I'm on the border so I can buy in NY.  Think Coors in the 70s, east of the Mississippi, legendary because it's not readily available.  It's a serviceable beer.  It's the oldest brewery in the US.   If there were 6 taps, that contained Yuengling, Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, Blue Moon, Corona, I'd pick Yuengling.  Gasp, that situation I just don't want to think about!

 

I buy American Craft, but if I were having a party, I'd buy some Yuengling for the people who wouldn't appreciate that.

I prefer Becks, but because of the price, Budweiser is my go to beer for weekend enjoyment (no light crap).

 

What I did like is the variety Yuengling offers:  Black and Tan, Ale and Porter (I think).  I may give those a shot at some point....

I'd say that you'd probably be happier replacing your Budweiser drinking with Yuengling.  It's definitely an upgrade.  You'll taste the malt and the hops that they use are more reminiscent of the beer that American Budweiser poorly copies.  The black and tan, porter and lager are all decent.  What they have on tap is the lager that you pictured above.  Again, very serviceable, Light American Lager.  Just not for me.

Yuengling Lager is my water. My everyday knock around, go to beer. It absolutely beats the shit out of Bud, Coors and other mega brewed pisswater.

That said, the fridge is not complete without an ample selection of craft beers/micro brews. The current ones are Green Man ESB, Stone Levitation Ale, Trooper Ale, Rogue Dead Guy and a 64 oz growler of Hoptropium IPA from my local brew pub.

Cheers!

Hmmm...ok, I think I have been convinced to give it another shot this afternoon.

 

I better be hungover as hell tomorrow....  :D

lol - I had one of the brewmasters from the Yeungling brewery here in Tampa live next to me for a decade; He was hilarious when he was drinking his own concoctions to the extreme on some nights, taking great pride in his work. I'd take Blue Moon over it from FJ's list of 6 above... But yea, I'm a Becks/St. Pauli Girl guy for normal drinking, but definitely love the lambics & the Maudite!

I've tried it and like it.

Problem is that it gives me headache and hangover. Weird... That one and Bass only.
Anything else, I can drink like a fish.

Never had (or heard of) it until now.

Most beer I drink comes out of the Spoetzel brewery, though.  Or Germany or Belgium.  American-style beers usually aren't my thing.  Maybe I'll give it a shot at some point.

I'm gonna be in and around Reno next month. What are the chances I can score me some Pliny the Elder?

 

Obviously,  the odds will be better if can find the time and means to get out to Cali.

 

If yes, where?

That's kind of a tough call, they don't have big distribution.  A rare beers collector/bar maybe.  That's on my to try list too.

This is really the peak of American brewing we are going through right now.  I said that a year ago, mind you, but things got better.  The IPA storm has let itself develop into a nice Saisson summer and all kinds of good winter warmers came out.  Don't miss this stuff.  Go out and try a bunch of it before the big brewers buy up all of these breweries and it goes to shit, or if they up their distribution and fuck it all up like they did last time.

 

Have you tried Victory Golden Monkey?  A very accessible Belgian-style American.  You can find it in Whole Foods.  There are better but this is easy to find.

I have had it, and it was quite good.  I'm okay drinking American beer.  It's American-style beer (weak, watery, flavorless) that I'm not a huge fan of.

We have a few small craft breweries here in and around Texas, and I've tried what I can, but we're not as good as the coastal regions for really good stuff.  I've got a friend up in Seattle who comes down occasionally with microbrew samples, and they're exceptional.  And I always make sure to check out the local places when I visit family up in Illinois.

I just don't care much for light golden American (or any origin, really) lagers. They tend to be made with a lot of "filler grains," like rice and just don't have the flavor or mouth feel (body) I seek. I tend to like dark German lagers when I get dragged to an Oktoberfest or something. I do like some lighter (in color) ales, like Boddinton's, countless IPAs & IIPAs. I'm just thrilled that the American craft (and home) brew market has grown such that there is a staggering variety of beer in many or most major cities these days.

I tried the lager when I was in upstate New York.  I'm not much of a lager drinker and prefer the darker beers over the lighter ones with Guinness being my favorite.  Yeungling lager is ok, but I wish I had time to try the other brews.

Yuengling had been my beer of choice at the local sports bar I watch games and PPV's at, but they've made some major changes to their tap line of late, bringing in Dos Equis, Modelo Especial, New Belgium Fat Tire, and Mackeson XXX.  Woot!

Yeungling is still better than that horse piss.

I lived in Philly for nearly 10 years.  When I first arrived there (by way of NYC) I was confused that everyone ordered/referred to it as "Lager".  I was like "What kind of Lager..?"  Kind of the way they order cheesesteaks "with" or "without", part of a long, local heritage.  Decent everyday beer, leaps better than Bud, Coors, or Miller.
