2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of caramel malt, corn. Pours amber with a nice head. Taste is really streamlined with corn and caramel malt. Sweeter than the lager but just okay.

Thin at first, then building to a malty taste that still lacks punch. Bland finish. Rather disappointing overall.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice copper color with a decent off white head. It has a slightly metallic aroma with a slight breadiness. The flavor has stale earthy notes with bit of fresh mushroom, bread, and club soda. Thin, watery body with a bit too much carbonation. Not a very good interpretation of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Clear shiny copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is sour-sweet dry grass and earthy, toasted grain. Taste is the same as the aromas with some corn and mildly tart apple thrown in, and toasted nut on the dryish finish. A hint of a metallic note in the long finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Malty as per the style, but fairly balanced. Smooth, average level of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is a clear copper-amber color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Pretty much exactly what you would expect a Yuengling Oktoberfest to be. Average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber with yellowing white head, thin and somewhat fine. Aroma of light caramel and wheat bread. Slightly sour grass. salt. Body is medium-light, a tad bit syrupy. Medium, unobtrusive carbonation. Flavor is lightly metallic bit of caramel, herbal grass. hint of soap. A refreshing, light example of octoberfest.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malt, and slightly nutty. The taste is on the sweet side with caramel, and a slightly burnt aftertaste.

Draft at Oktoberfest ZInzinnati on September 22, 2012. Amber/red/pink (yes, pink) hue, small head, aroma that’s equal parts pale lager and toasted malt, flavor that’s a cross between Yuengling Traditional Lager and a standard marzen with a bit of astringency. Somewhat strange but drinkable.
