EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle, screw-top but thankfully brown glass. Nose of thin dark malt with earth and dark caramel and some roast, touch of candy sweetness, but dirty. Pours is a red-amber-orange gradient with a short off-white head. Thin watery body with light but effective bitterness, blink-and-you-miss it malt, touch of candyish sweetness but dries out quickly and thickly. Dirty and makes me check to see if someone dropped their cigarette butt in my glass, and aftertaste is stale.

radagast83 (5071) - 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.

Nose is like a slightly-stronger version of Traditional Lager. Smells like America. Taste is fairly malty with a touch of bread.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, 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.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Crisp deep copper coloured body with a light brown highlight and a very thing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, light nuts and a decent amount of earth - but relatively clean scents. Medium-bodied; Assertive toasted malt flavours with a little spices, some stronger alcohol and a rather pungent metallic and earthy kick at the very end. Aftertaste shows some caramelised sugars, some tannic and drying herbal notes and a bit of alcohol. Overall, a decent marzen, but not great - as expected. Nice to see Yueng try something new, but this one isn’t executed that great. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$1.15 sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2012.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Fitlered dull copper-orange. Thin off-white head. Sweet, tastes of corn or other adjuncts, in addition to some bland malt. Pretty shabby offering, the corn sweetness doesn’t fit the style at all. Just barely drinkable, certainly cheap and sub-par.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
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 .

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA. A brilliant golden amber colour with a fast fading cream head; simple malty aroma - almost like a brown ale; straightforward malty flavour, slightly metallic towards the end; and a malty finish.

This reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I was training to be an Analytical Chemist and one of the exercises we were set was to identify and measure the metals contained in a sample of Newcastle Brown Ale from a metal can - we didn’t know at the time that the supervisor had spiked the sample, so were rather alarmed to discover that it contained lethal quantities of tin! Anyway this is probably how it would have tasted.

thornecb (4539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2014
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.

solidfunk (4489) - 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.
