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 (502) - 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 (1815) - 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.

Pretty high on the foul content. Rusty aroma with a good dose of acridity. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Fizzy carbonation. Bottle. Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2014
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. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Looks good, clear amber off white head. Caramel nose. Toasted malt and some biscuit flavor. Slightly cloying finish. Minimal hops here. Travlr (25876) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep golden amber color. Aroma of toasted biscuit. Taste is herbal caramel. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Everybody doesn’t know how to make a good Oktoberfest brew. Yuengling is one of those that doesn’t.
