Have had both bottle and draft and bottle is better. Not a bad flavor. Not bitter and no after taste. Low price and like all Yuengling products, a poor man's Sam Adams knockoff!

A: Medium brown in color, with a smallish light tan head.

S: Malty with caramel, and a touch of molasses. Perhaps a touch on the cloying side, with perhaps a touch of floral hops.

T: Malty with a biscuit like flavor. Slightly floral with a hint at bitterness, and perhaps a touch of tannin, or maybe brewer's licorice.

M: Medium bodied, moderate to active carbonation, and some odd cling in the finish.

O: Overall not a great brew, but I'd be pleased if this showed up with some wurst, kraut, and mustard... I'd be more pleased with a better beer, but this one could do.

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.

Pours a dark amber color with a rather modest head.

Nose full of sweet malts, slight floral notes and a ton of caramel.

Taste is akin to the smell, some herbal notes, caramel, but it's the burned malt that steals the show. Good mouthfeel, with below average, yet noticeable, carbonation.

The BA average is 3.35, which I think is fair yet on the low-end.

Look - dark copper body with white head

Smell - burnt toffee, toasted caramel

Taste - similar to the aroma, slightly burnt toffee and toasted caramel

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, higher level of carbonation, slightest of sweetness upfront, some bitterness on the back end that seems unbalanced

Overall - inoffensive, yet not an overly impressive iteration of the style. Worth a try

Price point - $1.79/12 oz single

Nice amber color with sizable creamy head. Laces well and smells of malt, barley, and some caramel. Every thing goes south after its fine appearance. The flavor is several ticks off. Overly sweet, overly malty, balance way out of whack and finishes far from stellar. Too sweet. Looking and waiting for grass and hoppyness to right the ship, but alas they are nowhere to be found. No thanks, I'll have a different Oktoberfest.

$11.98/12 pack.

Maltier than Premium, no discernable hops, makes me miss the roasty quality of Porter. I try it every year out of a sense of obligation but it never 'wows' me.

Pounded a nice amber color with a nice head. Smell is malty with a bit of caramel to it. Taste is smooth with a sweetness also very easy to drink this one. One of my favorite offering from Then going.
