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.

Quite fragrant, molasses and malts with light hops. Light tan head over dark,dark brown liquid. Head left quickly with no lacing. High carb and medium light water body. Tangy hops - bit sour. Light sweetness and OK malt balance. Pretty watery. Decent bitter,nutty finish and after.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 not the best black and tan, its sweet taste seem to over power its hoppy aftertaste when i had it cold, at room temp its slightly more balanced

coffee & caramel & notes prob from the porter, lighter than a normal porter and pretty smooth, not as robust tasting as it looks but about right for a darker beer that you want several of. I'm a fan.

Dark, heavy feel, but dissapointing when it came to flavor.. very thin and unrefined.

This is the beer staple in my house! I don't think I've gone more than a week without some of this in the fridge. It's inexpensive and absolutely wonderful. Goes well with everything!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Wonderful beer, especially considering its affordability. Very tasty caramel/coffee flavor, interesting palate. One of my favorite everyday beers.

A good firm head, an undescribeable appearance, a great taste with a wonderful palate, and some of the finest PA mixings of porter & premium...truly worth it.

Has this on draft at a Bennigans. This was the beer that started the micro beers for me. Over the years tis got way tho harsh for me. This one however was pretty good. It was a little creamy with a nice head to it. The flavor was not harsh at all.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 This is an easy to drink dark beer. It has a nice caramel/coffee flavor. It's lighter than other dark beers. I love drinking this stuff on tap. It's always a treat. This is by far my favorite Yuengling beer. I love this stuff.
