On draught at the Pour House in Mountain Home, PA. Pours a lovely coppery gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass. The aroma is mild corn with some malt. I don’t notice the corn in the flavor although there is a bit of sweetness here beyond what is being provided by the malt. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Ed5388 (3481) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malt, and slightly nutty. The taste is on the sweet side with caramel, and a slightly burnt aftertaste. LinusStick (3462) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
A boring Oktoberfest beer. Even more so as it is released in August. Anyhow, this is a decent macrobrewer attempt at the style. Aroma was alright. Classic lager aromas with notes of caramel and roasted malt. Pour was a nice light dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was weak and thin, but refreshing. Roasted malt and caramel are the big flavors, but don’t really stand out. Decent carbonation and a quick finish. Not much lingering after the swallow. Will try again in the fall when this beer should be consumed. Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Light malty aroma with grains, bread and caramel. Flavor was toasted malts, grains, bread, corn and light caramel. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice copper color with a decent off white head. It has a slightly metallic aroma with a slight breadiness. The flavor has stale earthy notes with bit of fresh mushroom, bread, and club soda. Thin, watery body with a bit too much carbonation. Not a very good interpretation of the style.

Bottle much thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of cereal, caramel malts, some light cereal and maybe a touch of some hop notes, but not many. Taste is sweet grainy cereal, light caramel, mild toffee, dry toast, and some mild bitterness, but not much. Eh, it’s ok. hershiser2 (3266) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle from Kroger, CHO. Pours an amber brown with a large frothy off-white head. Smells of roasted nuts, leaves, and malts. Tastes lightly nutty and earthy. jb (3255) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Very sweet and malty nose. Dark orange appearance is very attractive. Malty caramel/munich malt. They nailed it with this one. True to form and tasty and with the cooler nights I know Oktoberfest is coming soon. NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Draft at Milkboy. Clear medium-light copper pour with a nice frothy white head. Pretty much tastes like a standard Yuengling with maybe a bit more malt presence. Nothing to write home about but worth a try. Chudwick (3219) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle - pours caramel with offwhite head. Nose is cardboard. Flavor adds caramel. Light bitterness. Horrible.
