Notes/Commercial Description:
From the Yazoo newsletter:

Fall has officially arrived, the season and Yazoo Fall Lager. In years past the Yazoo Fall has been a ale but we decided to change it up this year and use a lager yeast. This gives the beer more of a even bodied mouth feel that has a full robust malty flavor. One sip and you will instantly think of the season.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a nice honey color with a decent finger of off-white foam on top. Lacing is scant and doesn't last long. The aroma is more malt than anything else, slightly grainy but mild. The body is unsurprisingly light, but given the near absence of lacing I expected that. The flavor has some light toasty malty notes, but not much else that hits me. Frankly this beer is ok, but boring. It's a beer well suited for quaffing liberally, both for its overall mellow characteristics and for its lack of specialness. I'm not sure why the 4-pack carrier (4? really?) bears the words "brewmaster's reserve", considering the relatively pedestrian nature of this beer, but at least its only $5.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

A- Burnt orange in color with a white head that quickly dissolved into nothing.

S- Mostly bread notes with caramel malts followed by a tart floral end

T- Similar to the nose only the malt is way more prominent, hints of hops at the end.

M- Medium in body with light carbonation

O- This beer would be perfect for Octoberfest type events. That said, it's really just OK. I'm a big fan of Yazoo, but this one is pretty average.

A: Pours a crystal clear light golden color. Solid finger of white head...decent retention. Filmy cap with good lacing.

S: Sweet, biscuity malts with grassy hops. Not terribly complex, but good.

T: Toasted, biscuit malts with the grassy hops from the smell. There's also a slightly citrus finish lingering along with the biscuit.

M: On the thin side of medium, but that's not out of the ordinary for a smaller beer of this style. Good carbonation creates a tingling effect.

O: Highly drinkable and pretty enjoyable, Fall Lager isn't the best marzen I've had, but not the worst. Won't buy again, but wouldn't turn it down.

Pours a clear, bright amber in my mug, with little to no carbonation seen in the way of bubbles. The head is white and a modest 1 finger high and fades fairly quickly, leaving only a little lacing.

Aromas are not strong, highlighted by some floral hop notes with maybe some citrus. There's also some secondary, soft caramel malt smells.

The taste, as in the smell, seems to have the hop bitterness overshadowing the malt sweetness, in a style that should feature more malt character.

The mouthfeel is crisp, with a light body and moderate amount of carbonation. Finishes well, with a somewhat bitter aftertaste.

Overall this is an OK entry for a fall lager, but I think it comes up short in the malts to feel like an Oktoberfest.
