I was never big on Yuengling's Lager but the Porter has always been an interest of mine of locally brewed beer. This stuff is good for the money and I recently bought a case of 24 bottles and it was worth it .
This is one of those high value for your money ratio kind of beers.
Great with wide variety of foods it would seem as well .

Bought a 12 pack of this, mostly just to try. 12 oz. bottles.
Poured out a dark, & I mean dark brown. No red highlights to this beer at all. Aromas are of chocolate malts, caramels, and hops, with a sweet lager yeast aroma as well. Tasted really good. Maltiness up front, with a decent hops bite in the middle, and a great, clean lager finish to it. Went down very smoothly. A great session beer in my book. I'm sure you'll like it if you try some.

Nice mixture of malts with a slight hint of hops in the finish. Very smooth, yet has a complexity that keeps it from being boring.

This would be great if it wasn't so thin. I've had thicker tapwater. Otherwise very smooth.

Not a bad beer. I am not a favorite of black and tans. It is a pretty smooth dark beer.

A lot of caramel flavors in this b&t. Not memorable, but a very drinkable blend from our Nation's oldest brewery.

A good "gateway" into the world of darker beers. Nothing complicated, just some mild roasted flavors and some bitterness. Slightly watery. I hear it's better on tap.

This beer has a pleasing aroma, and is dark brown, yet slightly transparent. Good flavor (although a touch sour) followed by a very mild hoppy aftertaste.
