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%

Poured into a Sam Adams glass and a nice off white head developed with mild lacing and retention. Great caramel / copper color which was clear. Aroma was mild with hints of caramel and malt. Tasted very malty with a slighty toasted toffee taste on the back. Some spicy and caramel hints. Mouthfeel was full and creamy with a mild and sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2013
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.

WheatKing (1246) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
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.

Prufrockstar (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2013
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
