Poured from a bottle into a pint glass 6/6/14

Pours very dark black with 1/8" of white foam that sits like a lid. Coffee, dark chocolate nose, lighter side. Taste is a very light body - thin - with a mild coffee grittiness. Short finish, hint of bitter but never really gets there. so so

I really like Yuengling's flagship lager. I saw this in the store and was quite surprised. I had no idea that Yuengling also brewed ales (dark ales at that!), so I had to give this a try. Here goes:

A: I liked it a lot. Pours black (but not too dark); great head with good retention time. I was actually shocked at the size of the head and how long it lingered. Very good for a porter.

S: I liked it. Heavily-kilned dark-chocolate malts; almost no hop character. Hints of caramel and butterscotch. Overall very good for the style.

T: Again, pretty good. It's very light, but that's to be expected given the style (if you want a full-bodied dark ale, try an imperial porter or stout). Chocolate is present throughout. Caramel, toffee and butterscotch lightly grace the palate. No hop character. The beer is somewhat creamy, but again it's a little too light-bodied to be characterized as such.

M: Very light. Nothing special but nothing lacking if you drink this beer with the right expectations.

O: Good. I probably wouldn't go for it again, as I like the regular amber Yuenling lager a bit more. However, for the price it's a very good beer. If you want a cheap porter, I would highly recommend this one.
