Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Yuengling Porter

Postmortem Brew Review
Dark brown opaque color.
Roasted malt taste and aroma.
Minimal half-fingered tan head with some lacing.
Not too heavy, silky in mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Some dark brown goodness lies in wait for you inside this bottle. I was a bit skeptical and thought that Yuengling might only be adept at lagers, but no! This may not be a heady european porter but it holds up on its own. There is a silky smoothness and solid malt tones at the end of each sip. In all, a solid session porter drink, if you prefer your brew on the dark side!

"Brewed Expressly for Tavern & Family Trade" is printed on the label. My family will have to go down to the tavern, because I'm not trading with them! Get your own!
