This poured a darker brown color with an egg shell head. Aroma was really sweet and malty but nothing interesting. Flavor was sweet malts, some caramel and toffee in their but not much else to be said about this beer.

Nice to see Yuengling do something different. This wasn’t a bad beer. The aroma is trickling with notes of moderately dark malt, some hops come through, very odd. It’s appearance is dark brown clean color, with a thin white collar. The flavor is nice, a nice moderate malty taste. The feel is smooth. Very nice to see the back yard boys do something different, hope it continues.

Pours a dark brown color with a nice tan head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Thin, watery, malty body, a touch of caramel, trademark Yuengling copper penny finish. It’s Yuengling...

On tap at the Coney. Beany worty aroma with some cooked veggie and a bit of Band-Aid. Light rubbery hops and light biscuit. Dark amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts pretty dry. Some sweet malt taste with weak apple juice. Fairly astringent with light tannins and some biscuit. Light bitter hops. Some Band-Aid, phenol. A little blah but not horrible.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 On tap at the mad mex in robinson. Looks very much like their black and tan, but perhaps ever so slightly lighter. Kind of a root beer appearance. Nice creamy head that does not fade. Smell is just plain beery good with no ill olfactory. Quite tasty for a yueng, as I recall, this is probably the most personality of any of the yuengling brews. Decent carbonation and it has some lingering roasted bitterness in there somewhat like mild old burned campfire wood. More than a dunkel and less than a bock. Comes across somewhat like a mild stout. Good experience and I’m glad I had a chance to taste this limited edition.

eaglefan538 (2828) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 20, 2009
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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
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.

OldGrowth (2481) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2009
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.
