Yuengling Black & Tan

Name – Yuengling Black & Tan
Country – United States
Type – Black & Tan

Appearance – Poured a dark brown that was almost black.  Small tan head that disappeared quickly.

Smell – Very nice roasted malt smell.  Some hints of chocolate and coffee.

Taste – You get the roasted malt tasted up front and it pretty much sticks with you throughout.  Some sweet chocolate hints towards the end and a little bitter hoppiness as well.

Yuengling’s Black & Tan is a combination of the porter and premium lager, neither of which are individually available down here in south Florida.  Not many people outside of the upper northeast know that Yuengling brews other beers as well.  I sampled the porter when I visited their brewery in Pottsville and loved it.  This reminds me very much of it but slightly subdued with the lager added.  Still a good brew all around.

Overall Grade – B+

    Nice. I’ve been tempted to try this one but haven’t had a chance yet. Not positive, but I think that Yuengling is also America’s oldest brewer?

    For the same reason (historicity) you guys mentioned in your comments, I would love to try their stuff. We can’t get any of it over here.

    You don’t get Yuengling in Ohio? Just one state over?

    Funny to see this as a grade B, which I guess is fair. Grew up in Pa and been to the brewery, hell, graduated my masters with Dick Yuenglings daughters! This is nice classic, refreshing beer, but get it FRESH or it is horrid!! Used to get this for 90 cents a glass at a neighborhood dive bar!!

      I’ve been to the Pottsville brewery and didn’t sample this but did the porter, part of this one, and it was really good. I wish we could get the porter down in these parts.
