mansquito (5307) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel malt and metallic lager. Taste is slightly sweet. Slightly watery. Tastes similar to the Traditional Lager, but with perhaps some more malt. That being said, it tastes more or less like an Oktoberfest should be tasting.

jgb9348 (5674) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Crisp deep copper coloured body with a light brown highlight and a very thing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, light nuts and a decent amount of earth - but relatively clean scents. Medium-bodied; Assertive toasted malt flavours with a little spices, some stronger alcohol and a rather pungent metallic and earthy kick at the very end. Aftertaste shows some caramelised sugars, some tannic and drying herbal notes and a bit of alcohol. Overall, a decent marzen, but not great - as expected. Nice to see Yueng try something new, but this one isn’t executed that great. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$1.15 sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2012.

Bottle. Dark ruby-amber with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is malty with caramel, dark bread notes and toasted grains. Taste is primarily caramel and dark bread with more sweet malt notes, toasted grains and hints of toffee. Body is medium with a lively, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more malt notes, stronger bready flavors, caramel, light toffee and some grains.

dmac (5587) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2012
12 oz bottle from my pops on opening Sunday. Poured originally with lots of large clinging bubbles inside a burnt orange body with a larger rather foamy light beige head. Aroma started off all cereal grains, dust and brown bread with some warming some spice and melted toffee emerge along with a slight touch of alcohol. The carbonation is a tad strong for such a watery medium mouthfeel and finishes bready. Flavor is a bit better then the original aroma, wet bread, dough, malts, perhaps a touch of toffee. Meh with some warmth it becomes drinkable.

On tap at the brewery. Copper-amber color. Slight spice, malt, and caramel smell. Perhaps a bit floral. Good spice character on the tongue

CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Cross between a Yuengling lager and a typical Oktoberfest. Refreshing while still evoking fall. Not nearly as impressive as the surpringly good bock they put out in the spring, but I think they did what they set out to do- something that hits enough of the Oktoberfest style to be recognizable, but light and refreshing enough to still appeal to non-craft drinkers. Price point that reflects the taste- slightly less expensive than any craft 6 pack, but slightly more than a Yueng lager or a Bud.

jrodooo5 (1484) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2012
The pour is a pretty copper with a nice tan head that slowly fades into a tiny bit of lacing. The aroma is very festive for the season with subtle hints of spice. The taste isn’t quite as nice. I don’t particularly like oktoberfest beer but this one has some decent flavor. It’s crisp, smooth, and well balanced. There’s nothing spectacular about this beer but there aren’t really any flaws either. Solid.

jsquire (4141) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Amber color out of the bottle with a nice foamy beige head. Sweet malty nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel sweetness, some toasted grains and an odd acidity to it. Long metallic hop finish. Okay beer.
