Yuengling Porter 6pk $6.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. No freshness date.

pours almost black. a good sign of a good porter. Light does show through the glass, but no more than Guinness draught. A nice two and a half finger creamy tan head, it doesn't last long however gives way to decent lacing.

i can smell roasted malts, caramel, coffee and a slight hint of cocoa. Pretty good, nice and inviting.

taste follows the nose but much more flavorful and robust. Starts with a nice roasted taste, followed by a hint of caramel and coffee. Ending with a bitter-sweet slight chocolate taste. No complaints here.

mouth feel is rather light, but most porters are. Has a nice feel, good carbonation. Not as rich or as creamy as some porters, but this brew is at a bargain price.

Overall this brew is excellent, for it's price range. An amazing bargain porter that everyone should try once. Not my go to porter but for the price i like it and will not complain.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at around 45°F

Appearance: Dark brown with a mahogany tent when put up to the light. Soapy one finger tan head. Looks the part!

Smell: Faint roasted malts and caramel

Taste: More notable than the nose. Subtle roasted malts and enough earthy hops to balance it out. Dark fruits (prunes, raisins) are present as well

Mouthfeel: On the lighter side; Slight hop bitterness. Not as creamy as I hoped for.

Overall: This reminded me of a Guinness Draught but with a little more flavor and less creamy. Pretty much what I expected a yuengling porter would be like. I don't know if it's a result of caramel coloring, but all Yuengling beers that I've tried look better than they actually are. Very mild for the style, but like the lager, you can't do much better for the price!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a near black in color with a tan head fades to a thin skin, but with clinging side glass lace.
Aroma, brings some caramel with some coffee and cocoa and some cold metal
Taste brings some sweetness, along with the caramel and burnt notes. Hop bitterness brings in a semi-dry good finish
Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, and creamy.
Not a big Porter guy, but this one works for me as a dinner beverage.
