IMO, Yuengling is a very average and highly overrated beer. I thought this the first time I tried it 10+ years ago. When classifying Yuengling, I'd put it in the same class as the Bud and Miller Lite's of the world. It's a very light amber lager. I'm not sure why people are flipping out over it, honestly. It's cheap and it's beer, but that's about it. To me, it doesn't have a ton of flavor and seems watered down. But, that's coming from someone used to much stronger beers like Great Lakes, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, etc. so take it for what's it worth.
I bought Yuengling the other day to try it again and to save a few bucks. I was hoping it was going to be better than I remembered. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I doubt I'll buy it again.
On a different note, I went to Zip's last Saturday and had the Great Lakes Christmas Ale on draft again. Fantastic as usual. I try to make an annual trip there for a burger and the beer.
