In a few words : Yuengling lager with some caramel sweet-ness added ... very forgettable ...
Spend the extra money and buy real German O-Fest ...
The bitterness that a couple other reviewers noted is something I notice, also .
A very watered down / bland mass-appeal kind of O-Fest ...

My first O-fest beer of the year.Poured one and a half bottles into a half liter stein,a clear lighter bronze shade with a large fluffy slightly off white crown atop.Aromas are light and clean with a hint of caramel and toasted grain.A little watery feel to it,flavors mainly of caramel and a touch of grain.It's very average and not complex but I didn't expect it to be mind blowing.Hopefully the worst Oktoberfest beer of the year for me.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Clear darkish amber hue, thin lacing. Slightly sweet nose, toasted malt, faint caramel, hint of hops, clean. Big on crispness, slightly smooth, lighter bodied, grainy, mild toasted husk, feigned sweetness, touch biscuity, light hopping, balancing bitterness, drying grassy finish.

Not half bad, drinkability is pretty high and with this beer being clean and all I'd certainly go back for more.

2012: Pours a deep copper-amber with good head. Smell is faint malt. Taste is very smooth, like a Yuengling Lager with a hint of Oktoberfest. Easy drinking and value priced.

2013: Decent Oktoberfest, Not as good as most U.S. versions, but still drinkable. Somewhat watery, but malty with a bitter finish. Not as good as the 2012 version due to more bitter finish. I hope this trend of over-hopping beer styles that were created to be not hoppy ends sooner than later.

12oz twist off bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a deep amber with a burnt orange color, decent clarity. About 1-2 fingers of off white head that eventually fades to nothing.

Light mineral lager yeast with a bit of light toasted grain and light caramel, nothing special.

Mineral with a touch of sulfur lager yeast throughout with some grainy sweetness and a bit of caramel bread. Slight hints of citric hop bitterness. hHowever a little too light and lack luster for the style, carbonated like a light lager, a little overdone , but drinkable and a nice new offering from yeunling.

Starts off a really nice appearance but that's the best thing this beer has going for it. It is along the lines for the style. However, just not the best rendition. Yuengling usually does a good jog with various styles Porter, Hefe, etc . . . just not here
