2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Clear shiny copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is sour-sweet dry grass and earthy, toasted grain. Taste is the same as the aromas with some corn and mildly tart apple thrown in, and toasted nut on the dryish finish. A hint of a metallic note in the long finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Malty as per the style, but fairly balanced. Smooth, average level of carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared with kristen down at the beach. Pours a clear amber copper with fair off white head that fades quickly. Caramel and toastiness, but also a distinct metallic twinge that took away from the overall experience. Sam adams octoberfest this is not. But not aweful.

New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel malt and metallic lager. Taste is slightly sweet. Slightly watery. Tastes similar to the Traditional Lager, but with perhaps some more malt. That being said, it tastes more or less like an Oktoberfest should be tasting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Coney. Muted malt aroma, with some decent hop character. light sweet and light acidic notes. Copper-amber clear with thin head that dissipated quickly. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts lightly sweet, with nice toasted malt character and a bit of caramel. Some diacetyl and fruity notes, too. Nutty but nonastringent finish, medium bitter hops. Dry nutty after.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a reddish amber with a fine-bubbled light tan head. Powdery aroma is malty with caramel and earthy undertones. Malty flavor has earthy, caramel and grassy underpinnings - quite satisfying. Body is above average, and fizzy texture leaves a strongly tingly and earthy finish. Prosit!

Draft at Quaker Steak. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. A bit of toasty malt on the nose. Nice smooth mouthfeel. A bit more malt on the tongue. Clean finisher. Good to see Yuengling expanding to new styles.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Pour House in Mountain Home, PA. Pours a lovely coppery gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass. The aroma is mild corn with some malt. I don’t notice the corn in the flavor although there is a bit of sweetness here beyond what is being provided by the malt. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Light clear amber, slight head. Slightly wet cardboard aroma. Flavor very, very lightly of toaty malt. Not an utter disaster, but not exactly good either. Very light bodied.
