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%

CacheManyHose (383) - HONG KONG - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Malty, musty, slighty vegetal/sweaty aroma. Not much flavour, a little malt and spice. Body thin and fizzy. Heavy red ale in the nose but not much going on otherwise.

swesson (289) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap at Red Robin. Orange-Amber body with a thin off-white head. Smells of yeast and bread. Tastes of complex malted barley and caramel, finish is of brown sugar and enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. I like this beer. It is brews like this that keeps Sam Adams from being overly mainstream. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
