12oz bottle pours a clear amber with minimum head. Aromas of sweet malts some bread cereal and grain. Flavor is sweet cut only by a little sour from the grain. Body is medium light and finish is sweet and doughy.

It pours clear, copper in color with a very thin head with no linger whatsoever. Modestly bitter taste with caramel hints in the aftertaste. It makes for a nice fall offering.

Beautiful Märzen aroma. I think it is its best quality. Head quickly vanishes. Nice Märzen taste, hint of molasses. Pleasing aftertaste. Overall great beer. Best Yuengling IMO.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Very typical marzen style only a little lighter in aroma and flavor. Very easily drinkable and perhaps even sessionable.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 The Missus and I are having a BBQ Labor Day weekend and thinking about buying a case of Yuengling Octoberfest. In Philly area case is running $22-$25. A work trip to Delaware gave me the opportunity to buy a single bottle of Yeungling O-Fest @ Total Wine for a test drive. Malt aroma, dark amber body and lasting tan foam throughout sample. Crisp, malt caramel flavors with a slight sourness peeking through. Likeable Marzen from the most famous Pennsylvania macro brewery.

This is rumored to be the original recipe for Yuengling Lager that was switched a long time back to the popular selling style they now offer. This Oktoberfest is okay. The color is almost like clay, very clear, thin offwhite head that disappears. Lot of bubblies on the tongue. Would like it to be a bit sweeter for a Marzen.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a very thin fizzy head that quickly fades. Grainy malt aroma with a caramel finish and a faint bit of toastiness. The taste is caramel, cherry-like fruits, floral hops. Thin bodied.

mccarltone (10) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Very easy to drink beer at an affordable price. This isn’t the "gold standard’ of Oktoberfest beers but it is nice for what it is. Aroma - caramel, slight roasted flavor Appearance - Amber and clear. Minimal head. Taste - Medium sweet, not too bitter at all. Malty.

A boring Oktoberfest beer. Even more so as it is released in August. Anyhow, this is a decent macrobrewer attempt at the style. Aroma was alright. Classic lager aromas with notes of caramel and roasted malt. Pour was a nice light dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was weak and thin, but refreshing. Roasted malt and caramel are the big flavors, but don’t really stand out. Decent carbonation and a quick finish. Not much lingering after the swallow. Will try again in the fall when this beer should be consumed.

Bottle from Wegman’s. Pours clear brown with a small head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is a little toasty but not really interesting. Taste is pretty interesting.. has some good maltiness and is overall a really nice Oktoberfest. Impressed by the local.
