Dacrza (693) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2013
DATE TASTED: September 7, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams lager glass... OCCASION: a beautiful Autumn football night...APPEARANCE: handsome dark amber body; steady, full effervescence; thick and creamy off-white head; slick, sporadic lacing--solid if not attractive... AROMA: bright, punchy (almost medicinal? band aid?) malts that do not distinguish themselves positively...PALATE: thinning, mouth-quenching consistency; surprisingly active at the teeth, denoting some hop presence...TASTE: doughy bread malts mesh with bittering hops to produce an ESB of sorts; a flattened profile as the glass drains--toasted cereal lacks the malt punch or sweetness that elevates better marzens... OVERALL: the sum of its parts? a reasonably drinkable, affordable fall alternative to higher-priced fests...the flipside? not festive enough, considering the proliferation of marzen possibilities at most distributors now...

DrNosha (705) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2015
Vom Fass im Brauhaus. Bernsteinfarben, wenig Schaum. Röstmalz und Gerste in der Nase. Malziger Geschmack, kaum herb. Oktoberfestbier schmeckt anders. Das Bier ist aber ok.

smaynard6000 (848) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2015
bottle. Pours an amber color with small tan head. Faint sweet malty aroma. Straight caramel malt flavor. Light bodied. A bit more flavor would be nice, tastes a bit light for a marzen. Not bad though.

kevinator (1550) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Nice floral malt aroma typical of the style. Pretty harvest color. Too watery and bland palate. Flavors were muted but malty with a hint of honey sweetness.

MattShizzle (572) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Copper color - clear. Malty aroma. Decent enough but doesn’t compare to real Oktoberfests from Germany or US craft breweries.

ElCapitan22 (299) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Pours a nice amber color with no real head retention or lacing. Smells nice and malty with no real hop notes. Tastes sweet and malty with a real smooth finish. This is a perfect session Oktoberfest beer.

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Gold/amber pour with white head. Aroma is light toasted malt and a corn like tone. Flavor is light sweet start with a touch of bitter on the finish. Carbonation a little over the top for me. Dry finish. Not my favorite style, but for the corn flavor and aroma ok

johnnnniee (3163) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle from that packie across the border. Deep golden color smallish white head. Smells a bit like the regular stuff, but maybe a bit sweeter. Nothing to go out of your way for here.

jsporrer (219) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Pours a dark orangish amber color with a thin off white ring. Thin body. Pleasant aroma with the faint smell of sweet grains. Tate is thin and watery with very light carbonation. Fairly smooth with a balance of hops and malt. Flavors are pretty weak with very little spice. Not very impressive or as good as the original Yuengling Lager.
