Yeungling, disgustingly overrated by people from Pittsburgh, one of the crappiest macros out there. Anyways, the Black and Tan and Porter seem to be the only two beers by them that are popular in craft circles, we will see how good it is.

Pours with a small head that quickly dissipates and a cocacola colored body. Nothing special.

Smells metallic, with some malts, nothign special.

Taste is a little good, mostly crap. On one hand there is a bit of tasty roasty porter in there, on the other hand there is a nasty vomit like water over-carbonated shit tasting lager, pardon the profanity. I definitely would want to at least try the porter after tasting this but it reaffirms my knowledge that Yuengling lager is horrible beer that should not be praised. Too much off flavor and sourness in this one to give it any recognition.

Just avoid Yuengling brews in general.

thanks to my homegirl terry who brought me this from a recent trip to PA.

A- pours a clear dark mahogany with orange highlights. sticky khaki colored head holds nicely and leaves some chunky crusty lace. understandably a 50/50 mix of yuengling lager and their easy drinking porter. i don't believe i've ever had a premixed b&t but this one has started off just fine.

S- i can definitely pick up the yuengling original in the nose. adjunct/macro aroma. grass, hay, corn, and a bit of b.o. sadly no roasty cocoa porter aromas.

T- starts slightly tart transitions to something that tastes like my dirty armpits, and finishes metallic. not what i was looking for. a faint hint of smokiness is percieved in the otherwise clean finish.

MF- thin, fizzy, cardboardish.

D- not appealing to me whatsoever. tastes like a f***ed up bud light. regular yuengling and yuengling porter are far better on their own than this frankenstein amalgamation, emphasis on the mal.

...seeing a bladder of a portuguese man-of-war floating near him he said "agua mala, you whore"...

Looks nice with the tall off white head and all, Garnett hued clear elixer With descent lacing.
Less than entertaining nose on this at just under room temp. This elixer REEKS of adjunct grain in my opinion, corn for sure in this.
Flavor is weak and watery some malty hop but not near enough.
Mouthfeel is very thin and lame.

12oz bottle poured into a pint.

No head, nothing.

Smells like... junk. Lots of dextrose.

Taste's even worse. Very hard on the tongue with burnt flavors and a weak carbonation. Very crisp but doesn't hide the fact that this brew sucks. Sweet at the finish but that doesn't help at all.

I had this one ice cold and it still tasted horrible. Ever again.

12 oz. bottle served chilled in a pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish and clear with a small beige head that quickly dissipates to little more than a ring. Leaves scant amounts of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Weird vegetal aromas, kinda sour.

Taste: Sour toffee malt flavor, not all that great. Did they just add food coloring to the lager?

Mouthfeel: Very light in body.

Drinkability: Not so great. Lacks any redeeming flavor to make me wnat this over an authentic black and tan. I wouldn't try this one again.

Rare I get the chance to have Yuengling and I still don't understand why craft beer drinkers are so excited to buy this stuff?

Pours dark with a tan head that doesn't last or hold long at all. Very large bubbles in there that don't hold and the color is reddish when held to the light.

The beer has a very "macro" oder to it. Perhaps just the smell of adjuncts? There are hints of coffee, toffee and caramel as well in here. Still a very off note in there I can't qualify.

Put to this point there's nothing wrong with this beer, just a touch boring. The flavor however is just wrong. I get plaster, puddy, plastic, coffee, caramel, earthy hops, and maybe some burnt plastic?

With all the odd flavors the lighter nature to this beer makes it stay drinkable despite some rather off putting flavors.

I certainly won't come back to this one, but I suppose there are worse beers? I can't really name any off the top of my head though.

Pours a deep dark color with a small head that fully diminshed.

Smell was syrupy sweetness and dark malt tones.

Taste was too sweet and syrupy. Didn't taste natural. Really don't like this beer.

Mouthfeel is too thick and sweet.

Not a fan of this one.
