Yuengling Oktoberfest sits somewhere between a very dark orange and a light brown in color. The head is creamy looking ad has some good retention and lacing.

The aroma has light floral elements too it, a good bit of malt and a hint of that Yuengling yeast.

I'm surprised by how much I like this beer. I drank quite a bit of it while kegs popped up around town; for the price it was excellent. Light, floral hops lead things off, followed by a malt base that is slightly light itself, but still more powerful than the hops. The malt is grainy, a bit toasty, and lightly sweet. The finish has the same yeast flavor that all Yuengling does. This Oktoberfest almost taste like someone took the traditional lager and tried to make it taste more like beer, which is good in my book.

Very light body, moderate carbonation.

I drank a lot of this stuff, and I think it is quite a good beer for how cheap it is. I wish it would replace the traditional lager, but something tells me that is a pipe dream. Yuengling Oktoberfest is a decent beer, with all of the right flavors, but it still kind of tastes like watered down Fest bier.

My first O-fest beer of the year.Poured one and a half bottles into a half liter stein,a clear lighter bronze shade with a large fluffy slightly off white crown atop.Aromas are light and clean with a hint of caramel and toasted grain.A little watery feel to it,flavors mainly of caramel and a touch of grain.It's very average and not complex but I didn't expect it to be mind blowing.Hopefully the worst Oktoberfest beer of the year for me.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Clear darkish amber hue, thin lacing. Slightly sweet nose, toasted malt, faint caramel, hint of hops, clean. Big on crispness, slightly smooth, lighter bodied, grainy, mild toasted husk, feigned sweetness, touch biscuity, light hopping, balancing bitterness, drying grassy finish.

Not half bad, drinkability is pretty high and with this beer being clean and all I'd certainly go back for more.

12oz twist off bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a deep amber with a burnt orange color, decent clarity. About 1-2 fingers of off white head that eventually fades to nothing.

Light mineral lager yeast with a bit of light toasted grain and light caramel, nothing special.

Mineral with a touch of sulfur lager yeast throughout with some grainy sweetness and a bit of caramel bread. Slight hints of citric hop bitterness. hHowever a little too light and lack luster for the style, carbonated like a light lager, a little overdone , but drinkable and a nice new offering from yeunling.
