There isn't a date listed on the bottle or the label.

Appearance: The beer has a nice dark brown body with a hint of red around the edges as light hits the glass. Although it is dark it has good visible clarity through the areas where light shows. The head looks fantastic. It has a medium-sized light tan head with a fluffy consistency. It looks great in a glass.

Aroma: There is a light bit of spicy hop aroma with a touch of toasted caramel.

Taste: It has a light bit of carbon and burnt, caramelized sugar flavor. There is some cereal grain flavor to the beer and it has a light herbal hop flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is thin and light bodied. It has a touch of bitterness to it. Slightly carbonic finish. Carbonation feels right for the beer.

Overall: It's a good beer that actually tastes like a black and tan. There is a light bit of carbon and bitterness to the beer from the porter, a bit of caramel flavor (presumably from both), and some cereal flavor from the lager. The body does feel pretty weak for the beer, even if you consider that it is a blend, and after a while the flavor starts to dull a bit. Other than that it is good. If you enjoy Yuengling Lager then I would recommend it because it tends to lean closer towards the lager than the porter. If you enjoy porters but want a bit of a lighter body then I would also recommend giving it a shot.

I have been a fan of Yuengling products for awhile now.....er.....
Their APL is superb! Best balance between hops and malt in my book.

Black and Tan: Black. Light cannot escape it's inky depths. Cold it comes across as watery and somewhat bland.
These are the BEER GODS interpretation. And to some extent I agree. But with a lot of Yuengling Products. Room temperature really brings out the true nature of this BIER! Just like German Bier, Yuengling tastes best when about 50 to 60 degrees. (Not Centigrade) The Malt jumps forward with a slight bitterness that is typical of Black and Tan beer. Nice Balance. Can smell the Malt a these temperatures. Some yeast. And coffee, chocolate. The hops come right out front with a mild bitter.

Let it warm a bit and try again. You may change your mind. Yuengling is a true German Bier.
