great oktoberfest. Not the best i tried but very much addictive for an oktoberfest. Honestly I like this Oktoberfest better than Sam Adams. Kudos to Yuengling for another wonderful beer. I know their beer list is small but I have liked all their brews so far except 1. but i guess that goes with any brewery.

Very good beer. Taste is smooth and price is easy on the wallet. One of Yuengling's best beers.

Yuengling makes great beer and Oktoberfest (Märzen) style beer is my favorite. If you live in the northeastern US it is very inexpensive, making it one of the best beers per dollar and my go to drink when it is in season.

Nice deep amber with a thick tan head. Malt, bread, caramel, and nut give it a very pleasant aroma. Taste is a very satisfying blend of sweet and bitter. Goes down full but smooth. One of my favorite Oktoberfests!!!!!

I'm reviewing the 2016 release. This beer is surprisingly good. The color is a deep rich copper. The smell has a sweetness very close to caramel. The pour has a thick steady head that floats and laces the glass from start to finish. The taste isn't bad. Quick flavors jumps at you of malty sweet caramel much like the smell. The funny thing is it doesn't look like much carbonation but it is definitely not flat. This isn't an authentic German oktoberfest. It's quite enjoyable actually and I would have no problem getting friends to have a few of this fine beer.

look- Dark"burnt" copper with a 2 finger off white head with light to moderate retention.

smell- Aroma of toasted caramel malts. Faint hops are noticed, and something that reminds me bread crust in the oven just before my wife makes stuffing.

taste- Early malt sweetness and flavor is surprisingly full bodied despite the lightness on the feel. Toast, caramel, Very clean a crisp

Feel- is light to maybe medium and is very drinkable with a crisp bitterness at the end with a fast dispersal.

overall- This is a great beer especially for the price as with all Yuengling beers. A great value without the loss of quality in taste and I would recommend it to any one.

For one this being very affordable wins out.

And despite how many say this is a bad brew or just ok.....rather opposite....its very well into the good range, yes it is rather light and very sweet/less malty vs others/big names of this style but still its very drinkable.

Another quality beer from Yuengling. Dark amber color, thick head when poured into a pint. Smooth mellow flavor I've come to enjoy.
