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.
