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 deep gold into a shaker. Off-white soapy head recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Butterscotch and caramel aromas. Astringent with sweet caramel front to back. Mild fest finish.

Wow. What a Shitty Oktoberfest. This brewer should stick with one uping bud. Shit in a bottle

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle->SA. Clear amber with small white head. Roasted malt, bread, earth, grains. Weak example of the style. Thin, but quaffable.

Bottle much thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of cereal, caramel malts, some light cereal and maybe a touch of some hop notes, but not many. Taste is sweet grainy cereal, light caramel, mild toffee, dry toast, and some mild bitterness, but not much. Eh, it’s ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark amber-orange, standard "American head" .. drinks as you’d expect, rich with caramel malt, and a nice fall, woodsy outdoorsiness. Not a bad interpretation. (#5302, 10/27/2013)

Very average, yet enjoyable and drinkable Oktoberfest beer. Pretty thin and one note...that's my only real complaint.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-tan color with a large foamy-soapy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, corny and malty with a hint of toffee and faint sour fruits. The flavor was tangy and sour with a bit of bread, honey, toffee and sour fruits. Medium length tangy, sour and fruity finish. Medium body. Uninspiring.
