Yuengling Original Black & Tan

Yuengling Original Black & Tan, brewed by Pennsylvania-based Yuengling, poured a dark cola hue into the glass, with a crisp and somewhat roasty nose coming from the frothy buff head. 

Yuengling Original Black & Tan opened with a subtle apple crispness and some minerals before the sweet creaminess of the porter came through.  The ale managed to never peak back through again, ending the beer on a somewhat lackluster, is not at least well formed, two-dimensional note.

Yuengling Black and Tan is a surprise in that it captures pretty much everything one could ask of a black and tan (short of the visual separation).  Worth checking out and a surprising repeater on my Nashville trip.
