emacgee (4457) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a clean and sharp orange amber with one finger of creamy tan head. Nose is mellow. Some malty sweetness and fruity notes. Flavor is meh, soft malty sweetness and touch of fruity/caramelish notes. Some raisiny notes. Mild herbal hop character. Medium light body and soft bitterness. Very light and soft body.

nearbeer (4391) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2013
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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Deep orange / light copper color. Long lasting off-white foam. Distant wood aromas. Flavor of toasted malts. Very smooth, lighter bodied. Loads of wood character. Very soft texture, easy drinking. Flavor is mellow, very well balanced. There is a nice caramel malt in the finish that follows up with earthy hop flavors along with some vanilla. Nothing like Sam Adams’ Oktoberfest (which is a Vienna), thank goodness. This is the perfect American representation of the old-world Fest Style beer. Very nice balance. (3455)

nick76 (4322) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
The aroma is papery with dirty dish water and caramel. it has very little hops as expected. The appearance is light copper with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall I am not a fan.

Cybercat (4290) - Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2011
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!

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
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.

zach8270 (3961) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange pour with a thin tan head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel. Sweet malty flavor with some caramel and dry bitter malts. Can’t get too excited about it.

jsquire (3866) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Amber color out of the bottle with a nice foamy beige head. Sweet malty nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel sweetness, some toasted grains and an odd acidity to it. Long metallic hop finish. Okay beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3861) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2011
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.

Nate (3826) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2011
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.
