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.

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 (6144) - 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.

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 porterís 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.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Really terrific. I think this deserves to be considered one of the top porters due to its mildness and balance (yes, itís a tad fizzy). Carnegieís and Fullersí porters are more like stouts - Yuenglingís is a true porter (rerate: actually, on reconsideration, I think Yuenglingís veers more closely toward a schwarzbier because itís so light in mouthfeel). Try their Traditional Lager too, itís 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

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 6, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 This is a nice porter that I bet would go great with a thick porterhouse. Too bad I canít find this in the South. Re-rate: Too mediciney for my tastes these days but would still like that porterhouse.
