12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear but very dark red-brown with a decent head that leaves little lacing. Smooth medium body with medium-light carbonation.

Decades ago, living in Pennsylvania, this was my go to cheap beer. I don't think the quality has declined, but the competition sure has risen.

Overall: probably still the best brew from Yuengling, but certainly not worth seeking out.

Had it in a golf course in a can. Better than I expected.

Watery for a black and tan. Nice and hoppy. Good caramel flavor ... maybe more than I would expect for a porter. Also ... black and tan is a stout and an ale from my experience. So this is lighter and more watery than I would expect. Still a nice surprise at this price point.

Well above average for the price - $5.99 for 6 pint cans. Ruby black with a quickly dissipating head. A cross of sweetness and vinegar in the nose. Taste is decent. You get a little AAL and a little dark sweet maltiness. Slick mouthfeel not thick but not too watery. You can do so much worse.

12 ounce bottle into a 16 oz shaker pint glass. Looks jet black w/very faint aroma. Quickly fading head and no lacing at all. High carbonation and tastes like flat coke. Mouth feel was very watery w/ very strong odd aftertaste. overall not a good beer at all. To be honest this was like drinking stale pop spiked with alcohol. Really disappointing. The fact that it was only $3.99/six-pack should have been a red flag. This is not a good beer in my opinion. A mega fail from the world's oldest brewery.

a middle of the pack brew. has been my go-to for several years as I know it will be in the supermarket's cooler. Yuenglling has changed the label and the blend for the third time in 5 years. no strong notes of any flavor. tastes ok at 65F and 33F. bought a 12 pack 6/11 for $8.99, so it is priced the same as Buller or Coosch. with a low ABV and ok to good taste, it is my choice if I having more than 2 or 3.

12oz bottled 4/17/17 poured into a tulip pint at fridge temp. The beer is dark drown with some copper highlights. The head is khaki and leaves some lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and a little corn. The taste starts with roast and chocolate malt then fades to a semisweet corn finish and no perceived bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with adequate carbonation. The finish is fairly dry. I don't detect any flaws in taste or mouthfeel. Overall, good. This is a nice beer for several without having to worry about getting loaded or full. It has a lot more flavor that a typical AAL.

Pours black and has a nice quarter inch head that thins to a lace. The roasted malts of the dark lager are definitely present here. Not a whole lot of flavor here. Kinda watered down. Goes down smooth. No bitterness what so ever. Nothing special here. Probably will not buy again.
