Another night, another beer. I had a four-hour meeting today at work. These types of meetings really make me think that I have A.D.D. I cannot concentrate on anything after about 2 hours straight. That, and my ass falls asleep. So, Katie and I are going to Country Night at the local bar. I’ve pretty much tried all of their craft selections so I figured since my review there would be of a macro, I should at least break something out the fridge. This beer is from a brewery that one of my friends loves, so I have really high hopes for.
Style: Black and Tan
Trivia: This brew is a combination of Yuengling Premium and Yuengling Porter.
Random: I can’t believe my buddy Phil hasn’t tried this one yet. He’s all about the Yuengling.
This brew poured with a seriously thick tan head, about two fingers worth, that dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose presented with mostly roasted malts, grain and then a hint of coffee. Smelled good to me. The beginning of the sip hit me with mild coffee up front and then roasted malts came through. Some sweetness and bread also came through on the subsequent sips. The sweetness mostly manifested as brown sugar, but was altogether mild. The body was a medium thickness with middle of the road carbonation. The finish was relatively long with the roasted malts apparent in the taste. Despite relatively crappy grades from some beer sites, I thought it was alright. It was an easy drinker with some flavor that I wouldn’t mind having again. I think the style is generally towards the boring side, but this one was probably the best of the style that I’ve had. Add to the fact that this beer tends to be cheap…worth a sip.
