Do my eyes deceive me? Does that say "Yuengling Oktoberfest?!" Um, yes, please! 12oz bottle poured into a conical pint. Pours a tawny dark rusty amber with a small sheet of lace atop. The nose is fruity with notes of banana, stawberry - though faint at that. Toffee and caramel sweet aromas round this out, with a touch of ethanol. A different aroma, but not offputting. Smooth clean mouthfeel, that begs to be gulped. Spot-on carbonation gives the beer enough girth to satisfy me. Sweet caramel and toffee flavors, light fruity back end. Bready finish. Alcohol adds just enough zip to bolster this beer. A total malt-heads dream. Really a good beer. I expected to find some major flaws in this, but I couldn’t really find any. A well-made beer, perfect for the cooler months ahead.

From a twist off bottle. I like most yueng beers so I wanted to try this although I am not a big fan of most fest beers. Looks like octoberfest, iced tea color and all. First taste does have some of that fest attitude but what comes across first is this mild slight wild sour thing. Yes, its there all right. Does have some bitterness to it which builds thru the session. Pretty good sizzle along withthe tartness makes this fest somewhat interesting. A little more mild than most fest beers I’ve tasted. Could probably drink a few of these, not bad overall. I just can’t get used to that weird bitter finish it has which develops after each gulp. Can’t say much about the aroma except that it is there and not unpleasant. Not quite as good as Climax Hoffmann Oktoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen, Sprague Farm Spraguer Logger or Schell Octoberfest but does score some points with that tartness in there.

Pours a clear medium coppery amber hue with a slowly fading beige head. Aroma and Taste of toasted barley, grains, caramel malt, some yeast and light fruity notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a toasted barley and grains, yeast some caramel flavor and some light fruity notes ending has a bit of nutty flavor. Overall a descent drinking brew.

Single bottle from ABC. Light amber pour with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, a little alcohol astringency. Taste is very malty - no hops, but also not much of the caramel sweetness expected from the aroma. Dry finish. Just tastes like a maltier version of the regular lager.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Shy, spicy hops are suggested within mildly toasted and caramelized cereals for a clean, perfectly serviceable lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the clear copper.
-The hop spiciness and malt toastiness combine for interesting pumpkin seed allusions.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The dry, wooden finish is forgettable.

Bottle. Thx Steve!

weihenweizen (1694) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear light amber with finger width off-white head. Little lacing, light carbonation, thin body, and caramel grain aroma. Taste is caramel grain, corn, a hint of an off taste, and some crisp hops. Below average even for an octoberfest.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
THOUGHTS: Sort of just a way more malty and hoppy version of their regular lager, but I guess that’s sort of like the original German oktoberfest beers. Märzens were never a favorite of mine, but last year I found several I really liked, but this is more like the first few that I ever tried that first put me off to the style. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium copper with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel, nutty and toasted malts; and moderate grassy and metallic hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a fairly short duration. There was caramel, malt, dark bread, a little raisin, toasted and nutty malts, grassy and metallic hops. But it was all sort of watered down. The light to medium body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

Bottle: pours a light amber, with a small off white head. Aromas are of sweet bread. Flavor is bland... It’s like most of their beers, good, but a little boring.

HighlanderOne (1000) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Poured from bottle. Aroma of sweet bread, malt, gas. Good lookin amber with lacing tan head. Roasted malt with a touch of brown sugar and maybe a hint of hops. Nice balance of flavors but too thin. Decent.
