My palette must be completely out of whack compared to most other reviewers, but this was horrible. It was bad enough that I didn't even want to finish it. I so wanted to like it as Yuengling is my usual default when out and about.

This beer is a complete turd. It's a Yuengling lager with a bit more malt. Period. If they used Nobel hops you would never know. This beer is a serious let down. A cheap way to market different beer. A loser to stay clear of. No, on second thought, try it and have a laugh. Terrible effort.

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.

Was excited to try this beer. Was even more excited to spit it out. Not the worst beer ever, but certainly one of the least of its kind. It makes me sad. Its tastes slightly of sweatsocks and despair. Its fine if you are into self abuse, otherwise skip it.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial nonic glass

A - It pours a rusty amber color. It was topped with an inch of off-white head.

S - I smell a little caramel malt and some grain.

T - I get some caramel malt and grain. It has a dry finish.

M - Moderate and dry.

O - Ever since I had a Yuengling Light I have been turned off by this brewery. I was given this beer. Otherwise I would have never bought it, and I probably won't buy it.
