Yeungling Traditional Lager

Yeungling!  I have lots of great memories of drinking this beer when I was staying in North Carolina. This was one of my go-to brews, and one that lots of my Charlotte friends seemed to agree on. It is brewed by the Yeungling Beer Company of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. It's only available in handful of states, so I was pretty thrilled when I found it on tap in an Irish pub during a recent trip to Washington, D.C.

Yeungling is a cheery clear amber coloured brew topped with a dusting of off-white head. It has a toasty malt aroma. It's fairly full-bodied for a lager, with considerable malt volume. It's initially sweet and the builds to a comfortable hop finish.
If you're in the Eastern U.S., keep your eyes out for Yeungling. It's a well crafted brew--nice and toasty.  I'd love to be able to get it in Toronto.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.


  1. Sounds pretty tasty. Hope it makes it's way to Atlantic Canada. Look at what your site has done!!!


  2. I don't know if my blog can take all of the credit. Besides, my own consumption has to be responsible for some of that uptick.
