12 oz bottle courtesy of Coldbrewky. Thanks. Pours a dark amber-red color with a small off-white head that quickly recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is fairly non-distinct with a trace of sweet grains. The flavor is loaded with sweet malts, roasted barley, molasses and brown sugar. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Pretty decent Oktoberfest, I’d drink the hell out of this if it were available locally.

This beer had plenty of potential, with a beautiful, dark amber pour and a fairly thick tan head. The aroma was very inviting, too, with plenty of caramel malt, lightly toasted bread and a hint of crisp hops. But that’s where the good traits in this beer end, unfortunately. The head doesn’t leave much lacing around the glass. The flavors aren’t very well balanced, with some sour notes toward the finish. I did get some toasted malts and light hops, but the sourness really overshadowed the good flavors. I really didn’t expect a whole lot from this beer, in the first place, and it aligned fairly well with those expectations.

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.

Clear mahogany pour, off white pour. Smell is bready, caramel, earthy, old malts. Taste is medium sweet corny, souring fruits/malts, earthy, caramel. Eh.

Lacking a real body and a finish on the palate. A little watery and not true to form.

Thin at first, then building to a malty taste that still lacks punch. Bland finish. Rather disappointing overall.

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.

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.

boto (1981) - 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.

Bottle->SA. Clear amber with small white head. Roasted malt, bread, earth, grains. Weak example of the style. Thin, but quaffable.
