12oz bottle. Fitlered dull copper-orange. Thin off-white head. Sweet, tastes of corn or other adjuncts, in addition to some bland malt. Pretty shabby offering, the corn sweetness doesn’t fit the style at all. Just barely drinkable, certainly cheap and sub-par. jgb9348 (6274) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Crisp deep copper coloured body with a light brown highlight and a very thing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, light nuts and a decent amount of earth - but relatively clean scents. Medium-bodied; Assertive toasted malt flavours with a little spices, some stronger alcohol and a rather pungent metallic and earthy kick at the very end. Aftertaste shows some caramelised sugars, some tannic and drying herbal notes and a bit of alcohol. Overall, a decent marzen, but not great - as expected. Nice to see Yueng try something new, but this one isn’t executed that great. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$1.15 sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2012. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2012
12 oz bottle from my pops on opening Sunday. Poured originally with lots of large clinging bubbles inside a burnt orange body with a larger rather foamy light beige head. Aroma started off all cereal grains, dust and brown bread with some warming some spice and melted toffee emerge along with a slight touch of alcohol. The carbonation is a tad strong for such a watery medium mouthfeel and finishes bready. Flavor is a bit better then the original aroma, wet bread, dough, malts, perhaps a touch of toffee. Meh with some warmth it becomes drinkable. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Gold/amber pour with white head. Aroma is light toasted malt and a corn like tone. Flavor is light sweet start with a touch of bitter on the finish. Carbonation a little over the top for me. Dry finish. Not my favorite style, but for the corn flavor and aroma ok TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2012

Taste is primarily caramel and dark bread with more sweet malt notes, toasted grains and hints of toffee. Body is medium with a lively, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more malt notes, stronger bready flavors, caramel, light toffee and some grains.

Bottle. Pours clear dark copper with fizzy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and caramel malts, light fig, faint earthy notes, and some toast. Flavor is sweet bready malts, dark fruit esters, faint hops, and light corn; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. thornecb (5918) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white soapy head recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Butterscotch and caramel aromas. Astringent with sweet caramel front to back. Mild fest finish. ganache (5908) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle, screw-top but thankfully brown glass. Nose of thin dark malt with earth and dark caramel and some roast, touch of candy sweetness, but dirty. Pours is a red-amber-orange gradient with a short off-white head. Thin watery body with light but effective bitterness, blink-and-you-miss it malt, touch of candyish sweetness but dries out quickly and thickly. Dirty and makes me check to see if someone dropped their cigarette butt in my glass, and aftertaste is stale. altonbrownd (5897) - 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. cheap (5862) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2012
From a twist off bottle. I like most yueng beers so I wanted to try this although I am not a big fan of most fest beers. Looks like octoberfest, iced tea color and all. First taste does have some of that fest attitude but what comes across first is this mild slight wild sour thing. Yes, its there all right. Does have some bitterness to it which builds thru the session. Pretty good sizzle along withthe tartness makes this fest somewhat interesting. A little more mild than most fest beers I’ve tasted. Could probably drink a few of these, not bad overall. I just can’t get used to that weird bitter finish it has which develops after each gulp. Can’t say much about the aroma except that it is there and not unpleasant. Not quite as good as Climax Hoffmann Oktoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen, Sprague Farm Spraguer Logger or Schell Octoberfest but does score some points with that tartness in there.
