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%

hauxe (309) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2015
Rated from old notes. A medium bodied brew in which the malts are quite predominant. Only in the aftertaste did the hops come to the forefront. Well balanced, with a warm alcohol presence that makes itself felt after mid-bottle. Pleasant.

It’s a really easy beer to drink because it’s not overpowering in any way, but you can get better Octoberfest beers. However, I had it again recently and immediately questioned why I’d ever had it before, including that time, so there’s that.
