look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The beer pours a beautiful amber color with a 1/2" off-white head that quickly fades to spotty lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a dry, pilsner, Munich, and crystal malt scent; sweet and malty with a touch of bread-like character. The taste is average. It has a faint malt character with a thin, dry finish. It goes down quick and easy with little complexity. The mouthfeel is average as well. It's a light and easy drinking beer with good carbonation. It has little mouthfeel and seems too thin and lacking for the style. This is a non-offensive seasonal that's easy drinking, but nothing to boast about.

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.
