3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Timothy’s. Poured a light brown color, some orangey hues, decent head and lacing. The aroma was dry grainy munich-style malts, faint chocolate, some light toast. The flavor was like a dry dunkel lager, grains, faint cocoa and toast (short of even a gentle roast), caramel, very light brown sugar. The mouthfeel was dry and moderately bodied for a dunkel lager, but on the thin side for a bock, nothing like the latter overall.

Pours a dark brown-red with a slim off white head. Aroma is of burnt caramels, lightly fruity malt, apples. Taste is of chocolate, burnt sugar, plums, raisins and a slight metallic twang just like regular Yuengling lager in the finish.

pint @ Tyler’s/Apex. good aroma. Sweet. apple, caramel, minor cocoa. Clean brownish orange color, small head that faded, good lacing though. Bitter sweet flavor. Like aroma apple, caramel, not as interesting as aroma. Lite body, thin, kind of creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Nice enough, aroma got better as it warmed. The cocoa came out at it’s warmest. good session beer for sure.

Had this at a beerfest. I surprised to see this at the tap. I was more surprised to see how good it tasted. The sales rep. told me this was a old beer being re-released. Good for us. If you like yuengling...you’ll like this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Fattys - medium brown pour with off white head. Aroma is mild malt. Flavor is very bock-like but just subdued. While it’s no St. Victorious or Spaten, it’s a pretty damn good offering from Yuengling.
