Dacrza (881) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2013
DATE TASTED: September 7, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams lager glass... OCCASION: a beautiful Autumn football night...APPEARANCE: handsome dark amber body; steady, full effervescence; thick and creamy off-white head; slick, sporadic lacing--solid if not attractive... AROMA: bright, punchy (almost medicinal? band aid?) malts that do not distinguish themselves positively...PALATE: thinning, mouth-quenching consistency; surprisingly active at the teeth, denoting some hop presence...TASTE: doughy bread malts mesh with bittering hops to produce an ESB of sorts; a flattened profile as the glass drains--toasted cereal lacks the malt punch or sweetness that elevates better marzens... OVERALL: the sum of its parts? a reasonably drinkable, affordable fall alternative to higher-priced fests...the flipside? not festive enough, considering the proliferation of marzen possibilities at most distributors now...

muzzlehatch (4876) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2016
12 ounce bottle from my Uncle Don’s (that’s Don, my real uncle, not Dan, my hyperreal uncle, for those faithful few who follow Muzzle’s every mystifying masturbatory musing) garage fridge in Caldwell, OH, drunk a little above cellar temp from a large juice glass. No, I’m not really back into the true tasting game - I didn’t bring my own glass(es) along on this trip, and have to settle with inappropriate glassware that will undoubtedly make any ratings written tonight or tomorrow night invalid and pointless. Anyway....dark amber to copper, clear, smallish off-white quick-dying head...lightly smoky-sweet cereal-grainy aroma, hints of soap and a mineral touch I can’t quite put my finger on...lightly sweet body initial flavor characteristic carries through to the finish, a touch of herbal roughness, a rather poorly extracted malt note that comes off as dry, stale cereal floating in tepid water...the sweetness is rather sugary and artificial and the finish is somewhat cardboardy and cottony on the tongue. I’m probably making it sound actually worse than it is; truth be told this is somewhat drinkable, but just. Hopefully the last Oktoberfest of the season, I’ve had enough for now.

Slight cereal aroma. Thick, pillowy head and golden copper color. Light sweetness and light hop bitterness. Finishes clean.

rollinsr (575) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 20, 2016
Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is yeast esters with a hint of caramel sweet malt. Flavor is crisp but with little else to it. There is a slight funk to the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jandd1983 (3944) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2016
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.

Nekronos (4135) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 28, 2016
Quite malty and great to dirnk as many Yuenglings, my shameful secret. MArzenish and very thick for these type.

Shanebrews (288) - Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
This is an Oktoberfest Light. Everything about it is thin and bland. It looks okay but disappoints on aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. The requisite elements are there but not in adequate quantities. It’s not really significantly different from the regular Yuengling lager.

KyotoLefty (9527) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
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.

Augdraught1981 (263) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2016
This is a clear pouring, copperish amber lager, with a thick off white head, a beautiful beer. Smooth, highly drinkable, and malty, which is exactly what an Octoberfest beer should be. This is reminiscent of the Sam adams version, which is equally as good and BETTER than some of the authentic German Marzens, if you ask me. Yuengling is making some really good seasonal offerings at a value that cant be beat. Damn good beer.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a medium amber with two finger head. Smells of light malt and a touch of wood. Flavors of malt, a little wood, and a touch of fruit.

altonbrownd (5898) - 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.
