4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Pours a clear copper with a one finger off white head. Aroma is so nice, sweet and malty. Mild carbonation in the mouth. Taste is similar to Lord Chesterfield until backend aftertaste. Not the best Oktoberfest, but still a good one. Has a bit of a skunky original taste with a sweet backend. Pretty good.

This poured a darker orange with a white head. Aroma was of caramel malt, grass, and metal. Flavor was caramel and grass. Slightly better than reggie yuengling .

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer smelled sweet, malty and delicious. The flavor was... saddening. Too much of a stale hop presence among a not-so-balanced malty profile. It went down smooth, but the after taste only got worse. Not a great example of a great style at all.

>> Thank you Griffin for the beer! Pours a clear amber with a weaker grayish head. Weak, spotty lace. Brown sugar nose with sweet honey bread. Taste is soap and dish water. Heavy mouthfeel of old walnut and bread crust. Soapy, suddy hydrogen peroxide finish. Very unpleasant, but somehow it was consumed without complaint. Quite poor for this style.

Draft at Milkboy. Clear medium-light copper pour with a nice frothy white head. Pretty much tastes like a standard Yuengling with maybe a bit more malt presence. Nothing to write home about but worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper color with aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Caramel and toasted malt flavor. Not great. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light toasted clean aroma. Dark orange appearance with a white head with below average head retention. A little too much toast in the flavor. Bitterness is high and the finish is dry. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation and a metallic astringency. Overall, the recipe needs to be reformulated. The toasted notes are too intense. The body is too light, bitterness is too high and it contains an unpleasant metallic that lasts on the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber color with a thin tan head. Malty, sweet aroma. The taste was a roasted malt with a slightly sweet caramel flavor that finished a little bitter. Really good beer.
