Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
THOUGHTS: Sort of just a way more malty and hoppy version of their regular lager, but I guess that’s sort of like the original German oktoberfest beers. Märzens were never a favorite of mine, but last year I found several I really liked, but this is more like the first few that I ever tried that first put me off to the style. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium copper with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel, nutty and toasted malts; and moderate grassy and metallic hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a fairly short duration. There was caramel, malt, dark bread, a little raisin, toasted and nutty malts, grassy and metallic hops. But it was all sort of watered down. The light to medium body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

Bottle. Picked up at a gas station in Zaynesville, OH. It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of cereal, caramel malts and some hop notes. The taste was similar to the aroma with more cereal, light caramels, mild toffee, toast and some mild bitterness. Decent.

Quite malty and great to dirnk as many Yuenglings, my shameful secret. MArzenish and very thick for these type.

Shanebrews (285) - Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
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.

KyotoLefty (9310) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
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.

Augdraught1981 (263) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2016
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.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a medium amber with two finger head. Smells of light malt and a touch of wood. Flavors of malt, a little wood, and a touch of fruit.

altonbrownd (5659) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2016
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.

slowrunner77 (10146) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2016
sweet malty smell and taste, fairly generic and a little thin on the body. Pretty much as expected. not bad and not special.

Bricks (976) - Delaware, USA - DEC 20, 2015
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.

zoucrew102 (1380) - - DEC 19, 2015
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.
