3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Color a deep amber. Thin off-white head. Malty aroma, with hints of brown sugar. Flavor was malty, in caramel and sugary notes, rounded with a slight bitterness. Not bad, but not the better Marzen.

This is an Oktoberfest Light. Everything about it is thin and bland. It looks okay but disappoints on aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. The requisite elements are there but not in adequate quantities. It’s not really significantly different from the regular Yuengling lager.

Bottle. Plain nose. A bit of brown bread, caramel, some minerals, and a bit of candy. A touch of peach comes out later. Amber-orange, clear, with a low, fine head. Plain, thin, fruity flavor, a bit of apple, caramel, bread, minerally hops. Drinkable but a bit watery.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a clear pouring, copperish amber lager, with a thick off white head, a beautiful beer. Smooth, highly drinkable, and malty, which is exactly what an Octoberfest beer should be. This is reminiscent of the Sam adams version, which is equally as good and BETTER than some of the authentic German Marzens, if you ask me. Yuengling is making some really good seasonal offerings at a value that cant be beat. Damn good beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Food Stop Rockville. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is malty, toasty, caramel. Taste is also malts, caramel and spices. Thin, watery texture. Not great. A bit bland really and too sweet in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very good looking beer. Reddish appearance with decent head. Smell is pretty neutral, all I get is a bit of malt. Taste is slight malt, balanced, bready. Palate is solid. Good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Sweet, grainy malt aroma with light caramel notes. Pours amber colored with a thin but retentive off white head that has good lacing. Starts with grain malt flavor with little depth. Finishes smooth and refreshing with some sweet caramel flavor, but watery and lacking the nice caramel sweetness of an Oktoberfest.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
expected more taste- beer tastes watered down and only a hint of pumpkin. I think the hint would have been better if spicy. this lacks imagination and is not a very good brew
