A: Pours a clear, dark amber with a creamy, clinging off-white head.
S: Somewhat muted aromas of caramel, dark bread, cream, roasted nuts, and grassy, lemony hops are apparent on the nose.
T: Notes of caramel, nougat, dark bread, roasted chestnut, hazelnut, black walnut, hickory, cream, lemon rind, herbs, and grass fill the mouth. The finish is long and rather oily, presenting lasting notes of walnut, chestnut, hickory, lemon, and caramel.
M: This brew is light-to-medium in body, marking it as much lighter and less filling than traditional Bavarian Oktoberfestbiers, though this is increasingly becoming the norm with U.S. interpretations of the style. Carbonation is crisp, but somewhat delicate, though it still makes its presence known.
O: I am not a Yuengling fan in the least, but this brew really is not bad. It does not make me want to rethink my opinion of most of this brewery's products, it does not really challenge my indifferent attitude toward this style, and it does not make me want to rush out and buy a case, but I would not turn this beer down if it were offered to me again.

Pours a dark orange with a slight foamy head that dissipates rather quickly leaving just a thin layer of bubbles throughout. The smell is malty, sweet, a subtle hint of caramel. The taste is malty, with a slight hint of sweet fruit. Pretty standard stuff. Not much kick to this, but enjoyable nonetheless and can be purchased as a six pack for just about $7. Fair alternative to some more pricier oktoberfests, but you get what you pay for.

For one this being very affordable wins out.

And despite how many say this is a bad brew or just ok.....rather opposite....its very well into the good range, yes it is rather light and very sweet/less malty vs others/big names of this style but still its very drinkable.
