I generally prefer the lager, but get this from time to time when I'm in the mood.

I am not a huge fan of actual porter beer, but after trying this black & tan today I may give regular porters another try in the future. I love classic Yuengling Lager, so I figured I would give this one a go. For $1/beer when purchased in a 12 pack why not. It is maybe a tad bland, and thats probably why I like it. Strong porters remind me of ham more than the "coffee" or "chocolate" for some reason. If you are looking for a hearty non-overpowering beer this is the one for you. Serviceable beer indeed.

My first Black and Tan review on BA. I admittedly don’t know much about the style.
Pours a clear dark brown color. The modest head quickly dissipates.
Porter like aromas in the foreground including cocoa and chocolate malt. The background there is cereal grain, straw and slightly floral. The aroma is its best feature.
Feels like a thin bodied, light drinking porter or brown ale with a clean lager background. Dark malts, very light chocolate sweetness, bready and with a light hops spice. In the finish there is lightly roasted malt, moderately bitter and dry. Mostly smooth and easy to drink, albeit a bit grainy.
Interesting style. This one was ok, not remarkable.

Harmless for what it is - bland outside of a little mild roasted malt, the "tan" portion doesn't really assert itself whatsoever, but it isn't egregiously bad or anything
