Yuengling Black and Tan - The Beer Taster

Yuengling Black and Tan

Yuengling Black and Tan

This beer is brewed out of Pottsville PA at the Yuengling Brewery which was established in 1829. This beer is available year-round and it has a 4.7% ABV.

This beer pours out a dark almost black color however it has a nice red ruby hint to it in direct light. It creates an off white head that laces the glass as well. The aroma of this beer is a nice combination of toffee, and caramel malts, with a hint of chocolate as well. The taste of this beer is a mirror image of the aroma as the toffee and caramel really stand out before the slightly bitter finish.

This beer has a medium body and does carry a decent balance however I would rather have an authentic Black and Tan with a Guiness and a Bass Ale if given a choice. I still would consider this a nice “already ready already” option if you were wanting a Black and Tan.

Cheers!
