COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dating back to 18th century England, the custom of blending pale and dark beers has kept the "Black & Tan" a favorite of experienced beer drinkers for centuries. Our famous recipe combines a robust English Porter with a fine Continental Pilsner, preserving the character of each, while creating the classic taste of the legendary "Black & Tan." In true American style, we bring you the best of both beers as they meet in Mississippi Mud.

Watery brown body with a decent, off-white head. Picture murky. Smell is of a normal lager, if I were blindfolded I'd never had expected there was anything dark about this beer. Taste was watery in the mouth, with sour, citrusy hops and weak amounts of toasted malt. End taste is water and a tiny amount of nutty chocolate. This a few notches below the Yeung-ling black and tan, which isn't very good either. Overall, not a bad beer for the inexperienced taster who doesn't expect big time flavor from everything.

Cool Jug. Watery flavor. Mix your own black and tans. fairly empty. Introduce newbies with this one.

Brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is lightly malt with notes of caramel, also floral and some yeast. Flavor is lightly sweet and weak. Watery finish. Nice jug though.

A nice jug of beer. It's smooth and finished nicely, a very good flavor. It's a pleasant black and tan, well worth the effort.

Here's my brief story about this beer, it first appeared while I was living in Mississippi. At the time, there were no legal brewing establishments in the state. The casinos in the state were lobbying to change the law. So when I saw this, I thought it may have been the first legal brew in the state, wrong! Anyway, the law was changed and the casinos started microbrews in some of them (the Grand in Biloxi had some good beers and I was there opening night, but nothing great)As far as this beer goes, smooth and not very complex. An okay beer in a neat "moonshine mini jug". Give me a real black and tan.

Much better than Michelob's black and tan, and better than I'd exoect from any bottled half-and-half. Smooth and light, interesting but not unpleasant flavor. Surprisingly good for the price.

thin watered down sweet taste. Had a malty aroma to it and a nice deep color to it. Basically bought it for the bottle.

High price, low flavor. I was expecting more. Too thin, boring. Very weak metallic finish.

Bottled. Nut brown. Yeasty nose. Some toffee and roastiness, but it's completely dominate by sharp, thin, metallic emptiness. An expensive drain pour!

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2003 Mississippi Mud is Dark with a hint of Tan in its appearance. Holly crap, it’s a Black and Tan, what color did you think it would be. I am actually amazed that the brewing company is able to stay in business when they sell a 32oz, above average beer for $3.00. The bottle that contains the beer is worth $3.00; it is reminiscent of on old moonshine jug. I enjoy this black and tan even more that the one that macro, Michelob produces. Very refreshing and light bodied for a black and tan, but worth your $3.00.
