2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear light amber with finger width off-white head. Little lacing, light carbonation, thin body, and caramel grain aroma. Taste is caramel grain, corn, a hint of an off taste, and some crisp hops. Below average even for an octoberfest.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent for the style which I admit is not my favorite. This pours amber with a small head. The aroma is bread, malt, grain, molasses and a bit of caramel. The flavor has the same with just a touch of hops for balance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Making this one official with the 10th rating. A nice caramel orange color. Off white foam, everything seems to be in order. The aroma is nicely toasted malts, some caramels, a bit of grassiness, still nice. The taste is a bready malt, slight sweetness, a nice drying hop bite with a bit of toasty malt mixed in. I don’t know if it was the pipe of Ashton Consumate Gentleman with it, but this beer hit the spot. I would like to see this in bottles but I slightly hesitate on that because I remember the draft Bock being better than the bottled Bock released the next year.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet and malty nose. Dark orange appearance is very attractive. Malty caramel/munich malt. They nailed it with this one. True to form and tasty and with the cooler nights I know Oktoberfest is coming soon.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Umm... Some sort of thanks to Pete... I guess (?) for sharing this during the fantasy football draft. The aroma and the flavor are slightly ok, but mostly not... Especially the flavor. Aromas of malty and light lager... Hard to describe to someone who hasn’t been there. Flavor is pretty Yuengling-y with a little bit neon shrapnel and a little more malt. I would way rather drink a normal Yuengling.

Draft at Milkboy. Clear medium-light copper pour with a nice frothy white head. Pretty much tastes like a standard Yuengling with maybe a bit more malt presence. Nothing to write home about but worth a try.
