Pours a clear deep amber/pale brown producing barely 2 fingers of beige, finely bubbled, foamy, short-lived head that leaves only a hint of lacing. Aroma is malty toast, brown bread, roasted nuts, thin brown sugar, fruity with cola like caramel, a floral hop essence & a metallic hint in the background. The breadiness, cola & fruitiness really stand out. Taste is malty like the nose: toasted dark bread, roasted nuts, rich cola like caramel notes, fruity with lager yeast, floral, spice & a metallic hint with a mild hop bitterness in the finish which rolls over into the aftertaste becoming a lingering bitterness. This brew is a nice blend of dry & sweet. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, lightly dry & slightly prickly becoming faintly drawing in the aftertaste. This was an aged example provided by Aaron James Shelton, Cicerone certified beer guy/bartender at Blue Sky Grill, Moultrie, Georgia. Thanks buddy!

Yuengling Oktoberfest has a thick, beige head, a mostly clear, copper appearance, with lots of fine, white suspended sediment, and some glass lacing. Aroma is muted, but one can pick up some glutinous brown bread notes, and flavor is of sweet, slightly bitter, brown bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium, and Yuengling Oktoberfest finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Nice copper color with one finger head, see below as I would have said the same things as they guy before me. It's good, get one.

12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 7/29/2016. Pours crystal clear deep orange.copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Some light yeast fruitiness as well. Taste of big brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spicy hop and toasted malt bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal dryness. Fairly clean on lager flavors; some fruitiness in the aromas, but minimal in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.45%. Overall this is a very good Oktoberfest style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very malty and flavorful for the ABV, with just enough hops for balance. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pub glass. It pours a copper color with one finger of ecru-colored head and lacing. The smell was subdued: primarily biscuit malt and nuts. The taste featured roasted malt, biscuit, nuts, and a hint of caramel. There was no discernible hop presence. It is medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and super-drinkable with an ABV of 5.45%. Overall, it's a middle-of-the road Marzen; it's refreshing and would hit the spot at a Fall outdoor event. It could be better on draught. But it's not at the same level of some of its famous German peers, such as Ayinger or Paulaner. Of Pennsylvania brewers, I think Sly Fox's Oktoberfest is better.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Looks clear darkish amber small head that disappears quickly with lacing.

Can smell some spice, and bread but nothing very strong kinda plain.

Taste is more of the same little spice but plain. Not a bad beer by any stretch just looking for more flavor and a warm feelin from fall and winter beers and this just didn't have that. Very drinakable and minimal aftertaste no bitterness.
