Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
From the Yazoo newsletter:

Fall has officially arrived, the season and Yazoo Fall Lager. In years past the Yazoo Fall has been a ale but we decided to change it up this year and use a lager yeast. This gives the beer more of a even bodied mouth feel that has a full robust malty flavor. One sip and you will instantly think of the season.

3.45/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

A- Burnt orange in color with a white head that quickly dissolved into nothing.

S- Mostly bread notes with caramel malts followed by a tart floral end

T- Similar to the nose only the malt is way more prominent, hints of hops at the end.

M- Medium in body with light carbonation

O- This beer would be perfect for Octoberfest type events. That said, it's really just OK. I'm a big fan of Yazoo, but this one is pretty average.

Fresh 12 oz bottle from TN with a bottling date of 23 Sept. 2015. Served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours with an autumnal orange-amber body topped by a small head that soon dies to a thin ring. High clarity.

As the color suggests, this has some medium roast and (I think) caramel malts. Both the aroma and flavor are lightly sweet. A faint hint of vinegar in the aroma seriously detracts from the otherwise pleasant aromatics, but this doesn't carry over to the flavor (or gets masked).

Feel: medium-light body and carbonation.

Overall: a lightly sweet, malt-dominated lager.

Pours a nice honey color with a decent finger of off-white foam on top. Lacing is scant and doesn't last long. The aroma is more malt than anything else, slightly grainy but mild. The body is unsurprisingly light, but given the near absence of lacing I expected that. The flavor has some light toasty malty notes, but not much else that hits me. Frankly this beer is ok, but boring. It's a beer well suited for quaffing liberally, both for its overall mellow characteristics and for its lack of specialness. I'm not sure why the 4-pack carrier (4? really?) bears the words "brewmaster's reserve", considering the relatively pedestrian nature of this beer, but at least its only $5.

9 Sept 2015, Fall Lager is all the bottle says about its' style. After having it, I would guess it is closest to an International Amber Lager made with US ingredients. The appearance is a brilliantly clear, light amber with red highlights. Small and short lived head, no lacing.
Aroma is at first grainy but smooth and with a slightly bready light maltiness. DMS is present but very low as is any hop aroma.
Taste and feel : smooth and well attenuated, light bodied with medium carbonation. Less well-developed malt flavor than a Vienna lager or Marzen.
This is not a bad beer by any means, I just don't know what to compare it to so I'm going with American Amber Lager. Guessing an International Lager, I would give it even higher marks than the score indicates.

A: Pours a crystal clear light golden color. Solid finger of white head...decent retention. Filmy cap with good lacing.

S: Sweet, biscuity malts with grassy hops. Not terribly complex, but good.

T: Toasted, biscuit malts with the grassy hops from the smell. There's also a slightly citrus finish lingering along with the biscuit.

M: On the thin side of medium, but that's not out of the ordinary for a smaller beer of this style. Good carbonation creates a tingling effect.

O: Highly drinkable and pretty enjoyable, Fall Lager isn't the best marzen I've had, but not the worst. Won't buy again, but wouldn't turn it down.

This is a nice lager with big flavor for a lager , nice deep copper color like a new castle .

I probably wouldn't sit around and drink several of these but they are really good .
