3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
354ml bottle as a gift from Virginia, USA:
I was disappointed with this one a little, I was expecting a little bitter more from my first beer from a brewery with such a long history but this one failed to deliver; hopefully if I ever get to try their Dark Brewed Porter or their Premium lager individually they will come out better than this combination of the two did. The beer was too basic for my liking and the porter part seemed to dominate but when the lager did making an appearance it wasn’t welcome and seemed to negatively impact the taste; this one isn’t a beer I’d be eager to try again but I wouldn’t mind get my hands on some of the brewery’s other beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Black pour with a light khaki head that fades quickly. Slightly roasted malt aroma. Flavor is weak and watery, very thin mouthfeel. Easy to drink though and unoffensive. For what it is, it’s not terrible.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice Yuengling alternative, I haven't tried their porter yet but I imagine this is what a porter and regular lager blend would taste like. Very appetizing aroma, strong on roasty coffee and caramel malt notes. Taste is milder, subtly sweet and roasty, burnt caramel malt. A hint of chocolate. Appearance was very appetizing too, a dark ruby black with tan head. A little on the watery side but smooth and finishes clean. Very enjoyable!

Bottle - Black color with a small and fast disappearing beige head, no lasting no lacing - Aroma of chocolate, vinous, black cherry - Flavor of roasted malt and black cherry - Light body, light bitterness, medium carbonation, vinous finish - nothing interesting

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours black color with tan head (who would’ve guessed it’d be black and tan). Aroma is like a pale lager, lots of generic scents, with some roasted maltiness in there (it’s very mild). Flavor is slightly malty, some caramel and yeast. Not much else. Carbonation is lively, what you’d expect from a pale lager. Definitely drinks like a lager. It’s ok. Pretty damn similar to regular Yuengling.

Dark beer, surprisingly smooth. Good flavor. Tried it a while ago but never bought again if that says anything.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Brown with a thin white head. Aroma and taste are fruity and biscuity. A hint of caramel comes through in the taste as well. Medium body with little carb. Fine for what it is.
