Another poor attempt at an "Oktoberfest" beer by a mainstream company. Glad it was free.

I grew up in Yuengling country, but I never tried the Oktoberfest until this past fall upon a friend's recommendation. It pours from the bottle with a nice, rich, red-brown color, although there is only a thin soapy head. The aroma is a faint combination of toasted bread and light, lemony hops. The flavor is definitely malt-forward as is to be expected, with notes of caramel and bread dominating, although there is also some musty and lemony hops to balance. The texture is a bit unpleasantly watery, with a fine, prickly carbonation.

Admittedly, this isn't my favorite style, and this one certainly isn't going to change my perspective, but it is similar to many other Yuengling products: solid and inoffensive, but a bit boring and unexciting.

Poured bottle into glass.

Appearance- Pours a dark reddish amber color with a head with light to moderate retention and has a slight tannish hue to it.

Smell- Caramel malt, biscuit aroma, sweet.

Taste- Has a strong prescence of caramel as it should from the malt. Sweet just as in the nose. Very smooth with just a hint of bitterness on the back end.

Mouthfeel- Very thin but a fair amount of taste. Easy drinking and super smooth.

Overall- I was surprised since this is a very good O-fest and is from a macro brewer. Definitely these would go by fast as they are thin, inviting, and agreeable to all.

Pours a soapy, white head. Spicy/yeasty aroma. Lovely copper color. Starts with an interesting spicy hop maltiness. Builds into a really nice biscuit flavor. Finish is spicy hops over smooth malt.

Oh, this is very nice. The initial flavor is an interesting blend of hop and malt, but it grew on me VERY quickly as the great malt profile swells. I really like this one.
