Not the worst black and tan Ive ever had but far from the best. When you want a b & t make your own.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 Poor excuse for a Black and Tan. No head. Poor color. it isnt even mixed.

I thought "black and tan in a bottle?" It struck my curiosity, boy was I disappointed. To everyone out there that hasnt tried it save your money. You cant bottle a black and tan, its a work of art not a marketing scheme.

Black and Tan. How can a beer in a bottle be a black and tan? It looks all to be one color. Therefore it is getting a "1" for appearance, for lying. I wouldnt even bother to rate it but I am cleaning up my A-B ratings, and maybe I can steer someone away from this fallacious brew.

LioNiNoiL (8) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 26, 2005 does not count
good dark colour, thin-bodied for a Porter, faint aroma; roasted malt taste, clean bitter finish.

This was ok, came from a sampler. Watery and light on taste. Not something I wuld go after.

mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Good tasting Michelob, but not their best. I would rate this as a lower end black & tan. Still a good beer, but if you expect a good b&t dont get this.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2005
This is a black-and-tan like Slayer is a bluegrass band. This beer is confused- it doesnt know what it wants to be. Sweet? Hoppy? This is high-priced ditch water.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Better than the other Michelobs that I had tasted up to this point. Yuengling still has this beat but for a black and tan it is quite drinkable, with a mello flavor and dark coloraton.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2004
This is a good, poor mans black and tan, decent dark color and smooth, with a good aftertaste. I dont know if it tastes exactly like a true black and tan, but then again its a bottle of Michelob.
