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. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2014

>> Thank you Griffin for the beer! Pours a clear amber with a weaker grayish head. Weak, spotty lace. Brown sugar nose with sweet honey bread. Taste is soap and dish water. Heavy mouthfeel of old walnut and bread crust. Soapy, suddy hydrogen peroxide finish. Very unpleasant, but somehow it was consumed without complaint. Quite poor for this style.
My Bottom Line : blipp (9295) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Shy, spicy hops are suggested within mildly toasted and caramelized cereals for a clean, perfectly serviceable lager.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the clear copper.
-The hop spiciness and malt toastiness combine for interesting pumpkin seed allusions.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The dry, wooden finish is forgettable.
Bottle. Thx Steve!
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Malty, with some light sweetness, and light toasted bready notes, followed by a toasted malty finish. Low bitterness throughout. Pretty good. douglas88 (9193) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2013
12 ounce bottle thanks to Cheap. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. A light malty nose, some skunkiness. Light fruity malts, some bitter skunkyness, metallic. Tastes a lot like Yuengling! Haha. Fond memories.

Pretty high on the foul content. Rusty aroma with a good dose of acridity. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. Fizzy carbonation. Bottle. b3shine (8875) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent amberish wrong with thin off-white head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells and tastes of malt and lager yeast. Average on the palate. Solid by Yuengling standards. drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
9/15/11. On tap in a pint glass. Clear amber pour, a bit on the light side, almost orange, with a creamy tan head that fades and laces a little bit. Very light aroma of grain, caramel, and not much else, honestly. Similarly light flavor of caramel and dusty grain tannins with a lingering roasty, almost tannic bitterness. Could be worse. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Draft at a local Glory Days. They said it was the Yuengling Oktoberfest, so there we go. Poured a copper color with a small white foamy head. Aroma was sweet malts, very much like say - the Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Drinkable, I suppose good enough to get once they make it to bottles next year. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light amber with a small head. Some cardboard and apples. Caramel. Knackered malts. Taste is pretty rough. Sickly apple. Spent grain. Junk bread. Sort of harsh toastiness. Just tastes artificial and past its best. Light body, very active carbonation. Not good.
