The Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can continues, episode 6: Yuengling Lager
I have to preface this review by saying I’ve drank so many pitchers of Yuengling when I was a graduate student in Pennsylvania that I am sort of immune to it. Quite burnt on it actually. I will try my hardest to approach this review with a clean slate.
% Alcohol: 4.4
Price: $7.99/12 pack = $0.67/12 oz. can
Color: Stale urine, like the kind that lines the gutters of State College, PA, after the Nittany Lions crush Michigan.
Aroma: Kind of corn-y, nothing too pungent, no hint of hops or malt or floral /citrusy that other lagers might have. Very bland aroma.
First Sip: Smooth, with a slight bite at the back of the throat from carbonation. Taste is more malty than anything, but nothing in particular is very noticeable in there.
Aftertaste: Slight bitterness, sweet and malty
Overall: It is not bad, but really its a meh beer. As I am discovering on this Quest, there really is a big difference among the cheap beers in a can. This doesn’t rank as highly as others and it’s Punch is up there with some slightly better ones.
