Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Aroma of caramel malt, corn. Pours amber with a nice head. Taste is really streamlined with corn and caramel malt. Sweeter than the lager but just okay.

Transfer from BA review on 8-27-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep amber color with lots of tiny bubbles streaming up through the brew. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head. The head has good retention but does eventually fade to leave a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of a sweeter and toasted malt base. The sweetness is of a more toffee nature while the malt is of a bready smell with notes of some light roast. Taste – A caramel sweetness and a roasted malt are the first to meet the tongue. Toward the middle the sweetness fades some with the beer becoming more crisp in nature. More toward the end some hop flavors come to the tongue. These hop flavors are lighter in nature and are largely of an earthy nature. In the end there is a bit of resurgence of some sweetness as well, leaving a rather pleasant sweet and roast flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The beer is on the lighter to medium side with respects to its body and has an average carbonation level. The body would have been better suited by a bit more creaminess (letting those roasty and lightly hopped flavors really be detected by the tongue). Even with this said, it was fairly good overall and really quite nice. Overall – Living in Pennsylvania now and having greater access to Yuengling’s many brews, I really have come to appreciate what they offer. It is a good product at a great price. Like their year round beers their Octoberfest is no different. While not the best per say, for its price to quality ratio, it is one of the best. It has good flavor as well as a nice color and smell. I say it’s a job well done by Yuengling.

boto (1922) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draught: This one pours a clear, coppery color. There was quite a bit of an off-white head on it that left a bit of lacing. The aroma is lighter, but still good. Caramel malts and a bit of grains predominate. The taste is pretty good. Some caramel malts, graininess, A touch of earthy and grassy hops. Not the best, but not bad either. A good choice for an establishment with a limited selection.

JFGrind (1893) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 The Missus and I are having a BBQ Labor Day weekend and thinking about buying a case of Yuengling Octoberfest. In Philly area case is running $22-$25. A work trip to Delaware gave me the opportunity to buy a single bottle of Yeungling O-Fest @ Total Wine for a test drive. Malt aroma, dark amber body and lasting tan foam throughout sample. Crisp, malt caramel flavors with a slight sourness peeking through. Likeable Marzen from the most famous Pennsylvania macro brewery.

NikkTwist (1890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
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.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured amber with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Aroma of toasted malt. The flavor found tasted malt with spices in the background. Light to medium body, and toasted malt aftertaste.

DCLawyer (1755) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle->SA. Clear amber with small white head. Roasted malt, bread, earth, grains. Weak example of the style. Thin, but quaffable.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Amber-orange pour with an off white head. Aroma is of caramel, pale malts and some spice. Pretty mild with a light amount of spice coming through the tame caramel flavor. Not bad.

Appearance: Pours a clear maroon copper..

Bif (1624) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2011
On-tap at Maggie’s on the River in Watertown, NY. Served a copper color with a small head and some lacing. Mild caramel aroma with some fresh grain and a bit of spice. Has a mild caramel sweetness with some biscuit. A light bitterness with a fairly clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and quite smooth. Easy drinker, nice seasonal beer.
