3.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
My favorite overall - larger ’’production beer’’.
A wonderful dark American made beer.
I would love to see this sold at pubs in Ireland and England to see the response.
Very consistent quality and smooth.
A good dark beer to introduce to beer drinkers who are ’’scared’’ of dark beer.
Usually priced at a very competitive value level. Really nice to drink in the cooler seasons.

Rated from old notes. Contrary to the deScription this is not a full bodied brew. A bit thin, but not unpleasant, with a roasted malt flavor. Pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle.
Pours dark brown, nearly opaque. With a very good tan head.
Revising an old standard here and I’m not disappointed. Then again, I remember a marginally poor beer and this is decent.
It does lack flavor, seeming made with minimal malts for style.

Coffee brown with brown head. Roasty aroma. Slightly thin, roasty malt flavor. Earthy hop. Nothing offensive but a little bland.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In my first review I stated "It is what it is". But after trying it again for the 3rd-4th time it is growing on me. It’s actually a decent porter, especially for a mass produced non-microbrew. I don’t mind the regular Yuengling (especially compared to other domestics like Bud, Coors, etc.), so I decided to give it’s porter a try since I am a big fan of porters. This almost has the appearance of a stout....a nice dark brown near black. I would also say that this taste more like a mild stout rather than a porter. Sweet and caramely with a hint of chocolate from the oats. Compared to the regular Yuengling, I’d say that this is better. For the price it isn’t bad at all.
