Yuengling and I go way back. Most people only know their legendary "Lager" but they make a number of good brews in addition to the Lager (my personal favorite being their Porter).
I didn't know that they started dabbling in seasonal beers (this is the second year they've produced this one)...but lo and behold, I saw this sitting on the shelf at Gilly's and decided to give it a whirl.
Smell-Smells a lot like...a Yuengling Lager.
Taste-Malty. In fact, this is a great beer to actually "taste" what malts taste like. I sometimes have trouble distinguishing flavors in my beer. If you want to taste malt, try this. Also, slight hoppy taste.
Mouthfeel-Medium bodied in every sense of the term.
Drinkability-It's drinkable but is this what a marzen is supposed to taste like? Because this tastes an awful like like Lager. I enjoy their Lager a lot...but I'm trying to figure out how this is different. Maybe I need to try more marzens.
About Yuengling Oktoberfest:
Copper in color, this medium bodied beer is the perfect blend of roasted malts just the right amount of hops to capture a true representation of the style.
