When I first heard that Yuengling was brewing up a fruity beer, that caught my attention. The company’s image is America’s Oldest Brewery and they stick to pretty traditional varieties – a lager, a pilsner, a porter. I went looking for this Yuengling mango beer and it’s a new product positioning for the brewer. It’s called “Raging Eagle” and has a logo like a football helmet.
Raging Eagle Mango Beer is also not available in bottles – just 24-ounce tall boy cans – or what some lovers of big beer cans call a “silo.” Yuengling’s other brews run between 4% and 5.5% ABV. Raging Eagle Mango hits 6%. This new Yuengling might not be aimed at the traditionalist and more at folks who want to get some beer in them quick and easy.
