Yuengling - Oktoberfest Bottled in Pottsville, PA.
I'm really torn on this one. It's not bad, and I'm generally a fairly good fan of Yuengling (decent cheap beer - did I mention cheap!), but their Oktoberfest misses the mark as an Oktoberfest beer.
It tastes like slightly stronger/darker than normal Yuengling. I don't get the märzen taste at all. By itself, compared to other mass market beers, I'd definately give this one high marks. But I think they totally missed the style guide here. Its like Michalob Amber Bock - I don't hate it, but it's definately not a Bock beer. If it just had a different label on the front I'd probably make a point of seeking it out again. I wonder if they actually bottled the wrong stuff or slapped the wrong label on the bottle?
It's not bad, but when I'm in the mood for a festbier, this one isn't going to do it. No sign of an ABV or bottling date to be found.
