Yuengling Porter brewed by D. G. Yuengling & Son - Pottsville, Pennsylvania

Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter is an original specialty beer that has been brewed expressly for tavern owners and family trade since 1829. An authentic craft-style beer, our Porter calls for a generous portion of caramel and dark roasted malts, which deliver a rich full-bodied flavor and creamy taste with slight tones of chocolate evident in every sip. It pours dark, with a thick foamy head, and imparts a faint malty aroma that is enjoyed by even the most discerning consumer.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Had two while out with the wife at Youell's Oyster House, Allentown, PA. I had oysters and crab cakes, which I think was a fantastic pairing with this dark eastern pa classic.

Pour - Quick effervescent pour with average lacing. Color is a deep brownish-red that in poor light gives off the appearance of a black-hole. Opaque with minimal clouding. Head is somewhere between bone and a pale walnut color. Two fingers that sits for a second before almost completely disappearing.

Nose - A nice mix of mineral and malts. A detect very little hops on the head, but overall a very sweet smelling beer.

Taste - Caramel malts and cola nuts open up the front end. A good balance of sweetness, smokiness and bitterness with little or no alcohol on the tongue. Gives off a dull tang on the backend that I think is consistent with Yuengling as I get it with the Lager as well.

Mouthfeel - completely different than what I'm used to in a porter. Crisp clean medium body that feels like it could be a Kolsch or a Pils, if not for the taste. Surprisingly good carb for a less than impressive appearance.

Drinkability - I could drink this beer until there is no more. A really traditional, bread-and-butter beer from a fantastic, small town brewery. One of my favorite interpretations of the porter style.

D.G. Yuengling & Son
D. G. Yuengling & Son is the oldest operating brewing company in the United States, established in 1829. It is one of the largest breweries by volume in the country, and is the largest American-owned brewery. Its headquarters are in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.  Yuengling produces about 2.5 million barrels annually, which as of 2011, placed it first among American commercial breweries. Besides its two Pennsylvania facilities, Yuengling also operates a brewery in Tampa, Florida. Yuengling is pronounced ying-ling, and is an Anglicized version of Jüngling, the German term for "young man". The family-owned brewery has traditionally changed ownership through the purchase of the company by the offspring of the previous owner. Due to the popularity of Yuengling Traditional Lager in Pennsylvania, it can be ordered by simply asking for a lager, especially in eastern parts of the state.
