A: Dark brown color and fuzzy tan head.
S: Very faint toasted chocolate smell.
T: Very light taste, that perhaps follows the tan part more than the black. Very lagerish, at a loss of porter taste.
M: Medium bodied and heavy carbonation.
O: Overall, decent beer, I enjoy the sessionable taste. But, it takes no stand as a true Black and Tan. Decent choice, but I'm excited to find better exemplars of this style.

Yuenglings are always a very good and decently priced beer, especially if you live on East Coast USA. A regional treasure for sure. This black and tan style is quite good and a great reminder of the original british beers in this style that you can find anywhere in London. I believe we're very well served. Just distribute it nationally and life is perfect! Kudos, guys!

Decent black and tan appearance even if not the thickest of stout 1/2 going into this. Aroma is lacking anything.

Taste is a thinner sessionable black and tan. Kinda more like a dark brown and tan. I mean its Yuengling, its their thing, a relatively sessionable but darker color beer that is smooth and doesn't offer a lot of heft or bitterness. Its worked well for them over the many years.

Dark brown with tan head that hangs around the edges through the brew. Smells of coffee and toasty malt. The flavors are aligned with the smell. Finished a little flat and somewhat lighter than expected. This is an okay beer, nothing more.

First had on Thirsty Thursday at Mississippi Braves minor league baseball game, poured from $2 pint can into frosted white plastic beer cup. Not bad, as more than a bit of malt flavor before a fading flat finish.

Poured from a 12oz bottle in a pint glass. This very drinkable sample from Yuengling is a solid alternative to their lager. Yuengling found the right balance of porter and "premium beer." This beer is always sold at a decent price in 6-12 packs in the Hampton Roads region of VA. Cheers!

Not black but all tan.
This beer is equivalent to a bud light or Cat piss!

From a bottle, pours a dark brown with red hues and a thick khaki head. Aroma is a faint cocoa. Malt-forward with char and caramel flavors. Any hops is really subtle but finishes slightly bitter. Solidly drinkable.
