Dark Amber with thick bubbly beige head; aroma is tinny malt; flava malty raw grain some sweet notes; feels light medium with big soda bubbles ; finishes tangy malt grain ryanscourt (1475) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Maybe a mix between a marzen and a yuengling lager. Not too much in the way of a malt body and hop finish pretty light. Pretty weak overall. rjplumer (1098) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Light roasted malt aroma. Deep amber and clear brown body with a light film for a head.Caramel roasted malt taste that leans more on roasted side of the equation. Light sweet finish. HourGlass13 (909) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Dark amber pour with nice off white head. Aroma is malty, dough and lite roasted. Flavor is malt, caramel, and a crisp taste. Good beer to be readily available. Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber with an inch of beige head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, caramel, and hazelnut. Taste is sticky malts, hazelnut, and wheat bread. Mouthfeel is on the thin side but the flavor lingers a while. Pretty good and sessionable.

Bottled. Pours a clear medium amber with a tan head. Sweet bready aroma; doughy malts and little hops in the flavor. Overall a bit bland. voyageurmike (437) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours clear caramel brown with decent, brief head. Faint malt aroma, bland watery slightly sweet malt with clean finish. Not a beer that stands on its own, it needs to be paired with sone food having a lot more character than it does. coyforce (684) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2015
OK brew for an American take on an oktoberfest marzen but just lacking the quality of the European counterparts. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Nice malt and hop aroma
Appearance- Traditional color and minimal head
Taste- more of a Vienna style not bad but there are better out there
Palate- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall- Ok brew, I prefer their lager but this isn’t terrible

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.
