Yuengling Oktoberfest has a thick, beige head, a mostly clear, copper appearance, with lots of fine, white suspended sediment, and some glass lacing. Aroma is muted, but one can pick up some glutinous brown bread notes, and flavor is of sweet, slightly bitter, brown bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium, and Yuengling Oktoberfest finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. RJT Mad5245 (1) - Lansdale, Alabama, USA - AUG 24, 2012 does not count
Beautiful Märzen aroma. I think it is its best quality. Head quickly vanishes. Nice Märzen taste, hint of molasses. Pleasing aftertaste. Overall great beer. Best Yuengling IMO. Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Comes out of the tap a reddish amber with a fine-bubbled light tan head. Powdery aroma is malty with caramel and earthy undertones. Malty flavor has earthy, caramel and grassy underpinnings - quite satisfying. Body is above average, and fizzy texture leaves a strongly tingly and earthy finish. Prosit!

On tap. Bridge View Tavern. Nice deep golden orange pour with a thin whispy head. Bright fresh and tasty with nice cinnamon spice. Very nice indeed. I am proud to be the ninth person to rate this beer. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Do my eyes deceive me? Does that say "Yuengling Oktoberfest?!" Um, yes, please!
12oz bottle poured into a conical pint. Pours a tawny dark rusty amber with a small sheet of lace atop. The nose is fruity with notes of banana, stawberry - though faint at that. Toffee and caramel sweet aromas round this out, with a touch of ethanol. A different aroma, but not offputting.
Smooth clean mouthfeel, that begs to be gulped. Spot-on carbonation gives the beer enough girth to satisfy me. Sweet caramel and toffee flavors, light fruity back end. Bready finish. Alcohol adds just enough zip to bolster this beer. A total malt-heads dream. Really a good beer. I expected to find some major flaws in this, but I couldn’t really find any. A well-made beer, perfect for the cooler months ahead.

Very easy to drink beer at an affordable price. This isn’t the "gold standard’ of Oktoberfest beers but it is nice for what it is.
Aroma - caramel, slight roasted flavor
Appearance - Amber and clear. Minimal head.
Taste - Medium sweet, not too bitter at all. Malty.

Making this one official with the 10th rating. A nice caramel orange color. Off white foam, everything seems to be in order. The aroma is nicely toasted malts, some caramels, a bit of grassiness, still nice. The taste is a bready malt, slight sweetness, a nice drying hop bite with a bit of toasty malt mixed in. I don’t know if it was the pipe of Ashton Consumate Gentleman with it, but this beer hit the spot. I would like to see this in bottles but I slightly hesitate on that because I remember the draft Bock being better than the bottled Bock released the next year. bdgf06 (19) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Smooth Oktoberfest lager. Easy on palate and good taste. Nice aroma and aftertaste.

Pours a crystal clear copper-amber with a short white head. Fruity, toffee nose, like many other American Oktoberfests. Wet and smooth, with ample scrubbiness. Fruit, toffee, toasted malt flavors that blend very well. Very smooth finish. Better than Sam Adams’ in my opinion. RONCOD (247) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a thin tan head. Malty, sweet aroma. The taste was a roasted malt with a slightly sweet caramel flavor that finished a little bitter. Really good beer.
