From a 12 oz. can poured into a traditional pint glass.

A: Dark amber with a tan head, minimal carbonation. Kinda watery! I must admit, upon first glance this does not look like a worthy brew. Tiny head dissolves in less than five minutes. After that it gets better with a little bit of lacing clinging to the glass. Not too bad.

S: Probably the least appealing characteristic of this black and tan. Metallic macro-brew with a malt backbone.

T: Surprisingly malty up front. Nice malts, no doubt from the Yuengling Porter used to brew this. Wheat-y, biscuit-y on the tongue. Only the briefest hint of that macro-brew smell in the flavor of this beer, thank goodness. Simple, light, and easy to drink far too much of.

M: Crisp, light. After-taste has a little astringency, but not crazy. Nothing special, it doesn't take away from the beer but doesn't add much either.

Overall, a decent session beer if you don't want to spend a lot of money and live somewhere in Pennsylvania. I like the cans, personally. I think they are less likely to taste skunked.
