UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Tap: thin brownish red body. Aroma of caramel malt with hints of hops - grassy. It comes off a little watery and finishes bitter with a predictable and mass produced like flavor. This score drops lower and lower each time I have it.

Nice red beer with a full flavour and smooth finish. Another quality Sam Adams product. I doubt I will buy it again, but if offered I wouldn’t object.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Very pretty reddish - actually very reddish beer with a somewhat confined head. Very aromatic and extremely tasty. Sweetish spiced virh moderate hoppiness. Well of course the Americans also brews an OctoberFest Bier, and they do it well.

Overly sweet malt, with a strong caramel flavor. Notes of spice and brown sugar are also floating around. Drank it out of the bottle, so unsure on appearance.

Poured a deep clear ruby red with a cinammon aroma. Taste was cinammon, molasses, and spice..sweet almost like brown sugar and a bit of hops near the end.

Overly smooth Oktoberfest style beer. Sweet caramel-flavor with a bit of hoppiness in the aftertaste. A tasty seasonal, and a nice change of pace from other beers of this style. Better than average.

Not the best beer of this style but it is probably my favorite beer by Sam Adams. Very smooth and a little malty. Definately a good introduction to this style
