look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

I think the crew at Yuengling could of created a better Oktoberfest.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Beautiful red-gold-amber color, light color cap with decent lacing.

Aroma: Some fairly rich malty tones with little hop presence.

Taste: Rich, toffeeish, caramely malt without much in the way of balancing hops. Flavor is inviting for just about any who like beer, too bad it doesn't last. The taste sorta thins out midpalate with a more roasted malt character emerging that lingers in the aftertaste. It's like they ran out of ideas and kinda chopped it off in the end.

Texture: Medium

Overall: A rather good tasting beer that doesn't quite hold together to the end. Still in all, it's an uncomplicated beer with fuller than average flavor that I suspect will be served very cold where the malt flavors will stand out and the disappointing finish diminished.
