Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 11/20/11. Poured on draft into a shaker pint. Appearance: Pours a dark caramel color with gold highlights and a 1 finger foamy white head. Nice lacing. Smell: Malty with sweet lager notes. Subdued aroma. Taste: Sweet German malt and typical Oktoberfest flavors. Not complex by any means, but it has a pretty good flavor. Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Drinkability: High drinkability. You could have a few without much difficulty. Overall: Pretty good beer overall. Not the best Oktoberfest, but it’s definitely worth trying.

[Draft @ Ortino’s pizza] Brown color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, toast, toffee, and bread. Taste of caramel, nuts, toasted malts, and light roast.

Draft at Quaker Steak. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. A bit of toasty malt on the nose. Nice smooth mouthfeel. A bit more malt on the tongue. Clean finisher. Good to see Yuengling expanding to new styles.

Surprised by this Oktoberfest, good brew. Worth trying, drinkable, good clean crisp taste for this style.

ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2011
16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Dark amber-hued body, good clarity, and capped beneath a slim, white head.

Smell: Sweetish scent, fairly tame, with light notes of toasted grains and caramel flavoring.

Taste: Crisped grains with some toasty elements to it and a light hint of caramel flavoring. Faint, vaguely herbal hops, mildly bitter. Sweetish, faintly grainy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation with some tingle to it.

Overall: The caramel taste here, it’s... it’s just odd, and, maybe it’s just me, but it seemed to have a falseness to it, like the added flavoring to that Saranac Caramel Porter. It’s not an abhorrent beer, but it sure doesn’t stack up against the better examples of the style (or even the not-so-better ones).

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Making this one official with the 10th rating. A nice caramel orange color. Off white foam, everything seems to be in order. The aroma is nicely toasted malts, some caramels, a bit of grassiness, still nice. The taste is a bready malt, slight sweetness, a nice drying hop bite with a bit of toasty malt mixed in. I don’t know if it was the pipe of Ashton Consumate Gentleman with it, but this beer hit the spot. I would like to see this in bottles but I slightly hesitate on that because I remember the draft Bock being better than the bottled Bock released the next year.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2011
On tap. Bridge View Tavern. Nice deep golden orange pour with a thin whispy head. Bright fresh and tasty with nice cinnamon spice. Very nice indeed. I am proud to be the ninth person to rate this beer.

Bif (1451) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2011
On-tap at Maggie’s on the River in Watertown, NY. Served a copper color with a small head and some lacing. Mild caramel aroma with some fresh grain and a bit of spice. Has a mild caramel sweetness with some biscuit. A light bitterness with a fairly clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and quite smooth. Easy drinker, nice seasonal beer.

StanMemTn (52) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer- Cordova. Standard Oktoberfest Amber pour, light malty nose with an unimpressive depth of flavor and richness of palate. Of six Oktoberfests we sampled (3 U.S., 3 German), this was the least impressive.
