Not too shabby. Everything you’d expect from an oktoberfest, and reasonably priced. A little bland and thin, but a nice aroma, with a little spice. Not the best example of the style, but a fair one, and not my favorite Yuengling beer, but it is tasty. Light maltiness and a bit of yeast is apparent, which I love. Maybe some nondescript nuts, perhaps hazelnuts. I’ll probably spring for another sixer or two of this $6.99 seasonal before it is gone, which means I think fairly highly of it. Still thankful that Yuengling began distributing in Ohio, and that we have begun to get their seasonals and lower-volume sellers. Yum! *edit* Good call by Berkshirejohn to say this is almost like a brown ale, because it is!

rosenbergh (7051) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Bavarian Bottle Shop) Helen, GA.
Clear amber colour with a small light tan head. Sweetness, caramel malt and some mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is dry malt and some hops. Quite drinkable but utterly useless.

GJF (1258) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Not a bad version of the style. Good clean malt backbone. Clean flavors. Decent Marzen.

Jow (2202) - New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at inlaws. Pours orange with fine enough head. Light nose of caramel and hop. Tastes of caramel, bread, metal, earth, and some hopping. Watery palate.

freekyp (1500) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2014
People are going to knock this brew for being a Yuengling but truthfully, its a darn decent marzen interpretation, showing requisite malty toasty notes with dialed back hops, just enough to balance. A sporting 2 finger head is nice and rocky, but short lived. Aroma is on the weak side with a bit of malt and perhaps some noble twang. On the lighter side in terms of body, but still within style guidelines. Not great but far from bad.

mike67 (805) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of some hops, caramel and fruit soda. Body is medium and astringent. Astringent hops, caramel malt and some grain fill the mouth. Finish is long and unpleasant. The brew to avoid.

bkurtz (831) - PERU - OCT 8, 2014
Pours a clear amber/copper with a creamy head. Bready aroma. Aqueous, but decent for a macro.

EyeAmBaldman (270) - Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a one finger off white head. Aroma is so nice, sweet and malty. Mild carbonation in the mouth. Taste is similar to Lord Chesterfield until backend aftertaste. Not the best Oktoberfest, but still a good one. Has a bit of a skunky original taste with a sweet backend. Pretty good.

Beerman6686 (4427) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
This poured a darker orange with a white head. Aroma was of caramel malt, grass, and metal. Flavor was caramel and grass. Slightly better than reggie yuengling .

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
This beer smelled sweet, malty and delicious. The flavor was... saddening. Too much of a stale hop presence among a not-so-balanced malty profile. It went down smooth, but the after taste only got worse. Not a great example of a great style at all.
