The posts kept popping up on my Facebook timeline. People talking about Yeungling Beer making it's way to Amarillo. I will be the first to tell you that until I started seeing the posts I have really never even heard of it. Is it worth it to try?

I was talking to a coworker who said that he was introduced to it years ago because he lived in an area that had it. Again I wasn't sure if it was worth the hype. I saw that Hodgetown had a night that you could try a sample of it. I saw different stores and restaurants in the area bragging about having it. Ok what is the deal?

Even if you go to Yeungling's website the first thing you see, after you say you are over 21, is that it is now available in Texas. Hmmmm, interesting. They had options: the Traditional Lager, the Light Lager, and the Golden Pilsner, and the Flight.

So over the weekend I was in Dallas and we were doing some shopping. I found the display and thought I wanted to try it. I opted for the Light Lager because I usually go for light beers. My beer of choice has been Michelob Ultra. Before that I would choose Miller or Bud Lite. So I wanted to compare these.

I looked at the Michelob Ultra's which have 95 calories per beer. Looking at the Yeungling's they have 99 calories. Ok....not bad. Would the taste be acceptable. I really couldn't wait to try it. Any store I went to this weekend proudly had a display. So it was working.

When I got home I threw one in the freezer to get it cold and fast. The rest I through in the refrigerator. Once it was finally cold I cracked one open. The thing I noticed first is it really had a crisp taste. I never really knew what that meant. It was the only thing I could use to describe it. It was clean and crisp. It did not have that beer taste to it. I rather liked it.

I can pretty much drink any beer once. I can get through any one. I like free beer and I will also scarf down any beer I am paying for. I do not waste money. To me, the Yeungling is one I will buy again. Well in fact I did buy some more to bring home from my trip to Dallas. I really enjoyed the taste of it.

Not an overpowering beer at all. I can only speak for the Light Lager since that is all I bought. If you are  a light beer drinker I think you will enjoy this beer. If not, let me know and I will take it off of your hands.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
