i poured this one into a pint glass, It has a brown color body with no head just a very thin lace around the top. The smell is faint of malt. The taste is very sweet malt almost honey sweet. Mouthfeel is watery and light and overall i don't like this one too much .I wasn't impressed at all.

Amber color with off-white head. Limited lacing.

Smell is sweet honey, malt, all-spice and a little pumpking.

Taste is sweet malt up front. Honey and a hint of cinnamon comes through. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel is watery. Very light with medium carbonation.

Overall this was just fair. Woudn't buy this again.

Yuengling Oktoperfest pours a burnt orange color with a finger of head. The aroma is sweetly malty. The taste is kinda like an amped up Yuengling lager actually, especially on the finish where it has a bit of that watery taste. The malts are more full, nuttier, a bit sweeter than the OG Yuengling. The nuttiness is most apparent on the finish. The mouthfeel is light and the drinkability is great. Overall, it's a tasty beer that really is quite reminiscent of the original Yuengling lager.

Poured into a pint glass, the beer is a clear medium amber gold, building a creamy white head, about one and half inches high. It dissipates within a couple of minutes into good lacing on the glass.
The smell is of malt, some banana and bread.
Tasting the beer, the malt and some banana flavors are up front. More malt and some caramel in the middle, and than some faint hops and more malt in the end.
Medium bodied, easy to drink beer. Nothing special, but also not a bad beer!
