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.

This beer pours a dark amber color. The head is moderate, and frothy. There is no nose to this beer. The taste fairly rich. It has some maltiness to it. A nice Marzen beer.

The Oktoberfest from Yuengling was solid....not outstanding. The beer poured a nice amber color with white head that dissipated and did not leave any lace. The scent and taste had a bready like base. Further the taste was a little dry...or at least can off the pallet dry. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Its a nice sessionable beer and fits well in the yuengling line up.
