Orange/brown pour. Nose of burnt toast, bread, caramelized sugars, toffee, slight hop presence and earthy grain.excellent and complex nose. Taste is the same as the aroma but lighter. Thin body. Great nose. Mild flavor. If it had more body it would be alot better.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours from the bottle with a nice, rich, red-brown color, although there is only a thin soapy head. The aroma is a faint combination of toasted bread and light, lemony hops. The flavor is definitely malt-forward as is to be expected, with notes of caramel and bread dominating, although there is also some musty and lemony hops to balance. The texture is a bit unpleasantly watery, with a fine, prickly carbonation.
Admittedly, this isn’t my favorite style, and this one certainly isn’t going to change my perspective, but it is similar to many other Yuengling products: solid and inoffensive, but a bit boring and unexciting.

Pretty high on the foul content. Rusty aroma with a good dose of acridity. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Fizzy carbonation. Bottle.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep amber, verging on being brown, with a fairly thick, off-white head. The aroma is of caramel malts, burnt toast and ripe bananas. The taste is of very sweet caramel malt with some burnt notes too. To me, the malt is too dark and it has too much of a caramel sweetness. I would have preferred a slightly lighter Vienna-style lager.

Everybody doesn’t know how to make a good Oktoberfest brew. Yuengling is one of those that doesn’t.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light amber with a small head. Some cardboard and apples. Caramel. Knackered malts. Taste is pretty rough. Sickly apple. Spent grain. Junk bread. Sort of harsh toastiness. Just tastes artificial and past its best. Light body, very active carbonation. Not good.

Bottle @ RG 21. Caramel color with no real head. Smells like grappa to me and bread. A little heavy, a little sour. Hard mouthfeel.
