A full bodied mellow porter with a rich dark color.

Lighter in color and body than other porters, but sometimes that’s not such a bad thing. Very tasty and easy to drink, one of few inexpensive and quality porters to emerge from PA.

Aroma is not overly powering, but the appearance is exceptional. The taste is even better. Deep black, opaque in color with a hint of deep red-brown color. The head is thick foamy cushion that slowly disperses along edge of glass. A small sip will immediately confuse you: chocolate carmel candy or roasted porter. I tend to lean towards the former. It screams for you to take another sip. Complex and thick with NO bitter aftertaste. Robust and mellow at the same time. Smooth, rich and lasting. A true brew from the Nations Oldest Brewery. One of the best porter’s I ever tasedt. I love it.

Bland. Not really a porter since it uses lager yeast. There is a tar-ish flavor in here that I really dislike, not sure what it is. Other than that it reminds me of Michelob Dark.

Really terrific. I think this deserves to be considered one of the top porters due to its mildness and balance (yes, it’s a tad fizzy). Carnegie’s and Fullers’ porters are more like stouts - Yuengling’s is a true porter (rerate: actually, on reconsideration, I think Yuengling’s veers more closely toward a schwarzbier because it’s so light in mouthfeel). Try their Traditional Lager too, it’s a winner!

This is the best Yuengling has to offer!

by far the best offering from this brewery, but still on the light side for a real porter

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 This is a nice porter that I bet would go great with a thick porterhouse. Too bad I can’t find this in the South. Re-rate: Too mediciney for my tastes these days but would still like that porterhouse.

This a lot better than the Black and Tan they have. By far, the best the brewery has made that I have tasted.

I am not a fan of the Yuengling Lager but I love this stuff. As my friend says it is like a candy bar in a bottle.
