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%

Flaska hos svärföräldrarna. Rödbrun vätska med vitt skum. Doftar lätt av malt och lite frukt. Smakar malt och lätt av torkad frukt. Ganska menlös. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet malty aroma. Malty and slightly bitter taste. Average Octoberfest but better than a lot of others.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
Liquide pétillant de couleur cuivre rougeoyant, limpide et mince, avec un nez de sucre d’orge, de céréales grillées et de baies. En bouche, c’est sucré mais pas trop, avec une finale langoureuse qui se termine sur une toute petite amertume. Des notes de prunes, de fraises et de sucre d’orge complètent le tableau. Très bien faite pour le style, elle allie saveurs justes, complexité intéressante, et haute buvabilité.

AbbeyRoade (517) - Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Not bad for a Sam Adams. Malty, typical Marzen that is refreshing and not bitter at all. Good amber ale backbone with deep golden color and light sweetness. Good fall brew.

33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear brown/red colour with a white head that quickly disappears. Malty scent, some hay. Malty flavour without a heavy feeling. Faint bitterness. Easy to drink. Would buy again.

Only ever had Sam Adams Boston lager so I was expecting a much hoppier beer.... This on the other hand is completely different. Much darker in colour (amber) with a rich malty and cinnamon nose. Taste is again cinnamon and dark fruits with some dark malt. It has a lighter body than I expected and is quite easy to drink. Not a bad beer but if I were looking for a dark beer I probably would look for something with more depth and body. Overall tho, I would say Sam Adams has not let me down.

Amber, thin head, not much aroma but pleasant, fresh taste, nice cold beer not much in the palate. Over all ok
