In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Yuengling Brewery. It is their fall seasonal, which is Oktoberfest. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this America’s oldest brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this East Coast craft brewery. Let us get into this Oktoberfest.
It has a clear amber color with a white constant head. The smell is light and very fade. I can not pick up any notes. The taste has a light old caramel notes. The aftertaste has a dry malty finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.yuengling.com):
Yuengling® is proud to offer our Oktoberfest as a homage to our German Heritage. Copper in color,this medium bodied beer is the perfect blend of roasted malts with just the right amount of hops to capture a true representation of the style.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, this beer is brewed to the classic beer style. It is pretty spot on for the style. There is nothing wrong with it. I will be really honest. It is not my favorite Oktoberfest. I would rather drink the original Spaten Oktoberfest. I am not a huge fan of the imported Oktoberfest. It is about same tasting notes. I know beer and craft beer drinkers love this style of Oktoberfest. There is the German Style of the Oktoberfest and there is the American version. I am a fan of the American because it has the heavy caramel and sweet notes. I know this beer does well and people hunt it done. I recommend this beer if you like the German Style Oktoberfest. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
