Yuengling Traditional Lager

A very simple beer that barely out-performs a macro. The color is obviously more attractive than BMC, but the head (virtually non-existent), the serving temperature (too often Arctic temperatures) and the tastes (muted to say the least) all resemble non-descript swill.
Unlike most of those macros, this benefits from warming up. This begins to release a little hop-aroma and a small (if somewhat weak) malt backbone.
Mouthfeel is decent, with some carbonation that renders it pretty smooth and drinkable, but outside of that nothing to report.
I understand the attraction, loyality and tradition associated with this beer, but quite frankly is just above average. If it’s this or macro, take it, under better circumstances probably pass. I was disappointed but not surprised by the mediocrity.
