COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of this seasonal beer is the color. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest has a rich, deep golden amber hue which itself is reflective of the season. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest is a malt lover’s dream, masterfully blending together four roasts of barley to create a delicious harmony of sweet flavors including caramel and toffee. The beer is kept from being overly sweet by the elegant bitterness imparted by the German Noble hops. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest provides a wonderful transition from the lighter beers of summer to the winter’s heartier brews.
Beer vintage abv varies from 5.0% to 5.5%

This was much better and much more flavorful than I was expecting. I’d had several Octoberfests in the last month and most are uninteresting. This I thought was actually flavorful. I quite enjoyed it.

I must say i really like this beer. I have had it several years with not much of an impression. This year I found it soft, chewy, and complex for a macro micro. Actually it had some very nice dryed cherry hints.

Kodos (200) - USA - OCT 25, 2001
Nice full head, deep amber color. Heavy malty nose. Taste starts smooth and ends up almost like a wine. Strong alcohol in the aftertaste. There are better out there for sure.
