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.

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 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.

Yuengling's version of this iconic Autumn style is an amber-orange color with deep hues but lots of clarity. An off-white head is a bit sparse-looking but holds its form reasonably well and keeps a foam for the entire session. Lacing is spotty and moderate.
There's a note of caramel, but otherwise this beer is more grainy than anything in the smell. Hops are definitely not of the Noble variety, and I don't get much besides citrus from them. It's not bad, it's just too light and kind of "off."
The flavor is a bit more defined and stronger, but I still can't really get on board with the hops providing only citrus and raw, sapling-like pith against a sweet caramel and a bit of grainy, husky sort of toast. It does, whether intentional or not, have a bit of an herbal note.
The texture is not clean, and pretty grainy overall, though the medium body is good and it's somewhat smooth. Crispness adds some bite.
