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

My Bottom Line :
Shy, spicy hops are suggested within mildly toasted and caramelized cereals for a clean, perfectly serviceable lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the clear copper.
-The hop spiciness and malt toastiness combine for interesting pumpkin seed allusions.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The dry, wooden finish is forgettable.

Bottle. Thx Steve!

12 ounce bottle thanks to Cheap. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. A light malty nose, some skunkiness. Light fruity malts, some bitter skunkyness, metallic. Tastes a lot like Yuengling! Haha. Fond memories.

blipp (7898) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Malty, with some light sweetness, and light toasted bready notes, followed by a toasted malty finish. Low bitterness throughout. Pretty good.

b3shine (7876) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent amberish wrong with thin off-white head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells and tastes of malt and lager yeast. Average on the palate. Solid by Yuengling standards.

drowland (7807) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
9/15/11. On tap in a pint glass. Clear amber pour, a bit on the light side, almost orange, with a creamy tan head that fades and laces a little bit. Very light aroma of grain, caramel, and not much else, honestly. Similarly light flavor of caramel and dusty grain tannins with a lingering roasty, almost tannic bitterness. Could be worse.

PorterPounder (7064) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2012
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.

solidfunk (7007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Pretty high on the foul content. Rusty aroma with a good dose of acridity. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Fizzy carbonation. Bottle.

radagast83 (6962) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Draft at a local Glory Days. They said it was the Yuengling Oktoberfest, so there we go. Poured a copper color with a small white foamy head. Aroma was sweet malts, very much like say - the Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Drinkable, I suppose good enough to get once they make it to bottles next year.

jackl (6782) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light amber with a small head. Some cardboard and apples. Caramel. Knackered malts. Taste is pretty rough. Sickly apple. Spent grain. Junk bread. Sort of harsh toastiness. Just tastes artificial and past its best. Light body, very active carbonation. Not good.
