Draft at Quaker Steak. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. A bit of toasty malt on the nose. Nice smooth mouthfeel. A bit more malt on the tongue. Clean finisher. Good to see Yuengling expanding to new styles.

The aroma is papery with dirty dish water and caramel. it has very little hops as expected. The appearance is light copper with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall I am not a fan.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz twist-off bottle. Deep orange / light copper color. Long lasting off-white foam. Distant wood aromas. Flavor of toasted malts. Very smooth, lighter bodied. Loads of wood character. Very soft texture, easy drinking. Flavor is mellow, very well balanced. There is a nice caramel malt in the finish that follows up with earthy hop flavors along with some vanilla. Nothing like Sam Adams’ Oktoberfest (which is a Vienna), thank goodness. This is the perfect American representation of the old-world Fest Style beer. Very nice balance. (3455)

Amber color out of the bottle with a nice foamy beige head. Sweet malty nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel sweetness, some toasted grains and an odd acidity to it. Long metallic hop finish. Okay beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Coney. Muted malt aroma, with some decent hop character. light sweet and light acidic notes. Copper-amber clear with thin head that dissipated quickly. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts lightly sweet, with nice toasted malt character and a bit of caramel. Some diacetyl and fruity notes, too. Nutty but nonastringent finish, medium bitter hops. Dry nutty after.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Picked up at a gas station in Zaynesville, OH. It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of cereal, caramel malts and some hop notes. The taste was similar to the aroma with more cereal, light caramels, mild toffee, toast and some mild bitterness. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared with kristen down at the beach. Pours a clear amber copper with fair off white head that fades quickly. Caramel and toastiness, but also a distinct metallic twinge that took away from the overall experience. Sam adams octoberfest this is not. But not aweful.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from that packie across the border.
Deep golden color smallish white head. Smells a bit like the regular stuff, but maybe a bit sweeter. Nothing to go out of your way for here.
