Yuengling makes great beer and Oktoberfest (Märzen) style beer is my favorite. If you live in the northeastern US it is very inexpensive, making it one of the best beers per dollar and my go to drink when it is in season.

No label information. Yuengling Oktoberfest is brewed in the style of an Oktoberfest beer. Available in 12 oz. 6 packs and on draft as an early fall seasonal.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy foam biscuit white head over a medium copper body with very high clarity. Retention is above average, lacing is light and patchy. 3.75

(Smell) Modestly sweet, syrupy caramel malt with a light bready body matches a light husky bitterness and a mild acidity. Potency is mild. 3.25

(Taste) The balance is slightly more favorable in the flavor, with a reserved caramel malt sweetness plus a light earthy grain bitterness. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is chewy, smooth and slightly dry. Carbonation generates a soft frothiness for a soft mouthfeel. Body is medium for the style, light/medium overall. Balance is slightly sweet over bitter. Alcohol presence is low and there are no discernible off characters. 3.5

(Overall) A fairly middle-of-the-road Oktoberfest, clean and enjoyable, it falls a little heavy on the sweet side of Oktoberfests but the slight imbalance likely won't stall the drinkability of this beer for any drinker. 3.5

L: crystal-clear, tawny-colored liquid... soap-sudsy foam that actually sticks around for awhile in cap form atop, clinging up the sides of the glass - must be the hops?

S: echoing what others have said, the overall smell does resemble their flagship lager - must be similar ingredients and yeast... what sets this apart is a marginally more nutty and Munich-like maltiness - not much, not enough

T: clearly not identical to the Lager... not nearly the depth in malt richness that toastier, more gluten-y grain flavors beg for... this is nutty and is of a malt character not unlike Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale (arguably)... little bit minerally with a woody hop character in the finish... wouldn't be surprised if they slightly modified their lager recipe for this

F: round, smooth... dull-ish on the palate... longing for something a bit sharper in carbonation and dryness with a fuller body

O: at the price point, not awful... got my hopes up with this, considering how well their Summer Wheat came out... this just falls well short... heaven forbid you have this with pancakes (I couldn't help myself), any subtle toasty malt character will be nullified
