German brewer David Gottlieb Jüngling immigrated to the United States from Aldingen, Germany in 1828 and started “Eagle Brewery” just a year later in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. The brewery was renamed D.G. Yuengling & Son in 1873 after David’s son Frederick joined the company. Yuengling is the oldest operating brewery in the United States.
THE FLAVOR PROFILE
Clean, toasty malt aroma with a slight floral character from Cluster and Cascade hops. Medium-light palate that matches the aroma in tune. Yuengling is where quaffability meets character.
A widely available, sessionable craft beer style that showcases both malt and hops. Amber lagers are a medium-bodied lager with a toasty or caramel-like malt character. Hop bitterness can range from very low to medium-high. Brewers may use decoction mash and dry-hopping to achieve advanced flavors.
