Review: Yuengling Oktoberfest

Review: Yuengling Oktoberfest

Pennsylvania’s Yuengling has launched its annual Oktoberfest brew expression, a beer they’ve put out every year since 2011 — but only during these high holy holidays of beer-drinking. Brewed with a blend of Tettnang and Hallertau hops, it’s a traditional copper lager, toasty with pretzel and brown bread overtones, lots of chewy malt, and the slightest hint of lemon peel. The finish sees a spiced apple note emerging, giving it an almost wintry overtone that works well with the darker lager notes that come before. All told it’s a fun and complex — yet easy-drinking — seasonal.

    Hi Christopher,
    I just read a couple of your beer reviews since I am looking for some extraordinary (not every-day) beers for our annual gathering of friends from the years of study. I found some really got beer inspiration here and want to leave a “thank you” for that. Cheers.

      Hey, thanks for that! From Germany, no less!
