Pours a clear copper color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of caramel malt, slight yeast, hint of dough, hint of alcohol, and sweet malt. Fits the style of a German Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of caramel malt, hint of alcohol, corn, hint of wheat, and sweet malt. Overall, good appearance and aroma, but body is lacking and has corn flavors that are not pleasant.

12 oz bottle in Atlanta.
Pours with a clear light copper colored body topped by a very good beige head. It also smells OK, with a mix of spicy hops and sweet malts. The flavor, however, is quite disappointing, even for a cheap macro-brew.

This beer looks great in the glass, a rich amber color with nice lacing. However, it is otherwise below average in taste, a bit watery with a narrow flavor profile. Still, it is one of Yuenglings best efforts. and hard to beat at the low end of the price range. There are better domestic Oktoberfest's, even staying within Pennsylvania, but this could make a nice fall session beer on a low budget.

Presented in a standard pint glass

Look: Deep amber colore with faint white ring around the top. There is a film of small bubbles that want to form a faint head but cannot quite muster it.

Smell: Faint smell of malts and almost no sense of hops. There is an earthy aroma that reminds me of autumn. I get a bit of a yankee candle vibe from it.

Taste: The hops give a pleasurable bite to the lips and tongue. There is a taste of minerals and spices that fade into a malty flavor. Tastes of grains and straw that really accomplish the oktoberfest genre.

Feel: Incredibly smooth lager that hits the right notes of bitterness and warm caramel malt.

Overall: Fantastic oktoberfest brew that is great from the beginning to the end. There couple be more carbonation and a tad bit more flavor, otherwise it was executed quite well for what it is: a cheap oktoberfest brew that can be bought as far as Indiana.

Pours a mostly clear amber color with a thin, white head with a touch of lacing. Smell is sweet, malt and caramel. Taste is...astringent at first, touch of hops, some bread and caramel. Lighter body, moderate carbonation. Astringency goes away as the beer warms, leaving more bread flavor. Overall, warmer its drinkable, cold it was barely so. Won't drink this again and wouldn't recommend seeking this out, there are much better fest beers out there.

Pours an effervescent caramel with 2+ fingers of sand colored head, looks the part. Pretty good lacing & head retention

S: Sweet grainyness, pears

T: A little bit of brown breadyness, some caramel, dryness & a touch of white grape up front. A little leafy hop surfaces as this warms,some pear as well & a little caramel on the edges. finishes dry, a little grassy with leafy hops & a little pear

MF: Medium body, fairlyl lively carbonation, body thins a touch when warm. decent balance

Not a bad take on the style, pretty drinkable

A- amber color with orange fades apart of it. half finger head with a wavy lacing on the inside of the pint.

S- caramel malts with some spicy herbal clove

F- caramel malts with hint of spice

M- watered down but a good effort. The caramel is there but the fall spice piece needs to be more pronounced

O- an average beer from yuenging but then again im a stickler. I like yuengling and i would buy a sixer of this to chill
