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.

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

Reddish brown color. Creamy white head. Aroma is stale grains, barley, yeast. Taste is straight beer, barley, hops, a bit stale. Ash aftertaste. Slightly fuller version of yuengling lager.
