12oz. bottle served into a pilsner glass
Pours a light nutty brown color. It doesn't look too dissimilar from regular Yuengling, what with that amber hue and sudsy head.
The aroma is fine, I suppose. A little below average for the Marzen style. Lots of nutshell aroma. Pecans, mostly. It smells a bit dusty.
The flavor is all wrong. It tastes mostly like Yuengling lager. Yuengling must be a base recipe for this Oktoberfest or something. There's some nutty flavor here, but nothing of the grassy hop note that I associate with the style. Really, this is very awful. And I like regular Yuengling!
Overall, this beer flat misses the mark. This is a brief review from me, but there isn't much that I can say here. It doesn't come across like a Marzen. This is difficult to drink.
