Bottle from mix pack. Pours orange with minimal foam. Smells sweet of brown sugar and a hint of hazelnut. Tastes mildly sweet with a fair amount of body and a surprising resemblance to spice cake.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A poker night beer. Bottle. Transparent amber with white head, medium-high carbonation. Nose is rich malt, some toastiness in the back but not much, Flavour has toastiness and caramel, finishes bitter. I get confused when there’s caramel in German lagers. Still, I liked this, and am rating it accordingly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear ruby-amber. Paired with tonight’s homemade pretzels. The pretzels turned out great, even without a lye bath. Malt forward aroma, some caramel, dark fruits, nuts and toffee. Taste follows, moderately sweet with medium length sticky sweet finish. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: good with pretzels.

Drank from can. A standard Oktoberfest brew that is extremely drinkable at 930 in the morning for a round of golf in the fall. Tastes of nuts and roasted malts wrapped up in a spicy finish. Good not great but solid beer

The Sam Adams Octoberfest pours a clear light orange color with a an off-white head that does not last too long and leaves no lacing. The aroma is caramel and toffee. The flavor is also caramel and toffee. Overall this is a smooth drinkable beer, but not overly impressive.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I enjoyed this beer, it is nothing over the top but it is a very nice beer to have while watching some football. Pours a deep orange color with a white head, I didnt really get much on the nose besides some caramel and malts. The taste is very crisp malt sweetness (caramel/toffee) there is no real hop bitterness, but the hops are there which keeps it from being overly sweet
