3.17/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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

Bottle from a six pack of Yuengling Oktoberfest purchased September, 2018, poured at refrigerator temperature into a simple glass. Deep amber body with a modest off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. I remember from previous years a nice medium bodied Fest beer flavor. Was I dreaming? This beer seems weak-bodied and overly astringent for the style, with a vague hoppy bitterness. It looks good, at least. It's probably not too different from Yuengling Lager.

Clear amber with two fat fingers of tan head. Creamed corn and a hint of vomit in the aroma. They carry over to the taste, along with a little hops and nuts. Relatively clean finish aside from a slight metallic aftertaste. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Awful.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep clean amber, with a well-sized head of near-khaki suds. Average lace.

Aroma: Caramel malts, toasty and pleasant.

Taste: Lightly-bodied (maybe even a bit on the thin side) but sweet and toasty on the palate. Very drinkable and faithful to style. No problems here, maybe not the best American Oktoberfest but certainly not bad in the least.

Desperate for festbiers and seeing nothing but Sam Adams, this was a bit of a stretch but it was cheap. Pours a dark copper, one finger of soapy white foam that fades to a thin cap. Smells like Yuengling... pale malt, munich-ish, a little caramel, mildly spicy and herbal. Taste: a little toast, watery caramel sauce, peach candy note, moderate spicy and herbal hopping. Light bodied, aggressive carbonation. Didn't expect this to be good, and it's not, kind of like drinking a Yuengling while someone shouts out marzen descriptors from the next room. Is that how the meme goes?

Really doesn't taste like an Oktoberfest beer. Sort of tastes like Yuengling Lager and maybe just a little bit sweeter....as in very little. But then again, their Golden Pilsner basically tastes like the Lager as well. Yuengling is Yuengling I guess which isn't a bad thing really. Overall, the Oktoberfest is a decent session beer....that's about it. And hey, its cheap. What do you expect for $6 for a six pack?
