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.

Bottle from Food Stop Rockville. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is malty, toasty, caramel. Taste is also malts, caramel and spices. Thin, watery texture. Not great. A bit bland really and too sweet in the finish.

sweet malty smell and taste, fairly generic and a little thin on the body. Pretty much as expected. not bad and not special.

Very good looking beer. Reddish appearance with decent head. Smell is pretty neutral, all I get is a bit of malt. Taste is slight malt, balanced, bready. Palate is solid. Good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Sweet, grainy malt aroma with light caramel notes. Pours amber colored with a thin but retentive off white head that has good lacing. Starts with grain malt flavor with little depth. Finishes smooth and refreshing with some sweet caramel flavor, but watery and lacking the nice caramel sweetness of an Oktoberfest.

expected more taste- beer tastes watered down and only a hint of pumpkin. I think the hint would have been better if spicy. this lacks imagination and is not a very good brew

Vom Fass im Brauhaus. Bernsteinfarben, wenig Schaum. Röstmalz und Gerste in der Nase. Malziger Geschmack, kaum herb. Oktoberfestbier schmeckt anders. Das Bier ist aber ok.

bottle. Pours an amber color with small tan head. Faint sweet malty aroma. Straight caramel malt flavor. Light bodied. A bit more flavor would be nice, tastes a bit light for a marzen. Not bad though.

Nice floral malt aroma typical of the style. Pretty harvest color. Too watery and bland palate. Flavors were muted but malty with a hint of honey sweetness.
