3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly sweet, toasted malt aroma. Embossed brown bottle, clear, intense burnt orange beer with a light white head. Nicely bitter, nutty sweetness, toasty. The body is a bit flabby/starchy - without the crispness desired. Some overbrewed, metallic hop notes in the finish. Overall, probably a good value if you’re looking for a marzen. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Decent first taste that gets a little watery. Bitter second taste that doesn't finish well. Not good aroma.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Coldbrewky. Thanks. Pours a dark amber-red color with a small off-white head that quickly recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is fairly non-distinct with a trace of sweet grains. The flavor is loaded with sweet malts, roasted barley, molasses and brown sugar. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Pretty decent Oktoberfest, I’d drink the hell out of this if it were available locally.

Bottle. Burnt toast taste, more so than most Oktoberfest. Really liked it. Aroma is maltly, with a really nice nutty aroma. Amber color, some head and lace.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from coldbrewky. Amber hue with small off white head, little retention. Nose of flowers, biscuit, and corn. Full creamy body compliments lught caramel in the palate. Corn arives on the finish inaddition to the suffecient bitterness. This beer would be amazeballs if they ditched the corn infavor of a pale grain. Come On Yuengling!!!! Say no to corn!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2012 Flour City Brewers’ Fest. Poured dark amber with off-white head. Aroma is toffee sweetness, roasty malt, and cereal. Taste brings out some grassy hops. Body is pretty light yet creamy. Maybe not the best marzen but pretty good for a macro.

Bottle - pours caramel with offwhite head. Nose is cardboard. Flavor adds caramel. Light bitterness. Horrible.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with soft white bubbly head. Aroma has some light toffee accents, a bit of nuttiness. Flavor has some root beer candy notes, some brown sugar, some ripening vegetable notes, a caramel like sweet finish. Mouthfeel is just on the good side of thick. Not bad.

Ah, Fall. The time for rushing about and completing all those outside projects that you have been just not getting around to all summer. Sixer at Beerworld in Catskill. . A surprise from Yuengling on the shelves. Nose of pie crust, mixed with barley. Nose could use a bit of umph as it had to be pulled from glass. Almost pumpkin ale colored in glass. Body is a pleasant monotone of sweet rounded malt as most Yuengling brews are. Similar finish. I should have turned on some polka and tuba music to set the mood. Easy drinking. A decent Oktoberfest finally this season.
