The boys an Yuengling surprised me with this one. It was somewhat complex in taste and it goes down smooth.

The best beer Iíve had from Yuengling to date. A well made porter, with a great taste (fruity, nutty, coffee mix), and a good aftertaste.

Iíve tried other Yuengling beers such as Black and Tan, Premium and Lager, and I havenít been overly impressed. This changed after I tried Porter. I was very pleasently surprised and decided to have a few! Wonderful mixture of flavors.

smoked/roasted coffee aromas, head diminishes to a thin film that has staying power. fairly sweet chocolate flavor..thin-medium body

Drinks lighter then it looks. Another great item from the oldest brewery in the US.

This is a purpose beer. This is the beer to get the person who insists that they donít like dark beer and you are trying to wean them from the fizzy yellow stuff that held so many of us for so long. Nothing offensive in this. A little sweet, some pleasant smokiness. Lager, only darker, and bigger flavor. Not at all bitter.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Not a great example of a porter, but the fact that itís a lager puts it in a different class. On that basis, itís not a bad beer, lacks hop and body to really compete.

PorterPounder (7315) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 RerateDark chestnut color, thick mocha head, fresh lake water aroma, slight chocolate and coffee flavor with some deent bitter bac end notes. Clean palate. Not the best porter - but a bargain for $5.29 a six. Original 2.5Drinkable beer, but if the label did not say 'Porter' I would not have known it to be. Nothing offensive about this brew - just not a true porter.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2002
Lighter in color and body than other porters, but sometimes thatís not such a bad thing. Very tasty and easy to drink, one of few inexpensive and quality porters to emerge from PA.
