3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sam Adams Octoberfest first poured very nicely and had a beautiful copper red hue to the brew and looked very inviting. The aroma was left to be desired, as it was very faint and unappealing to take in. The taste was a little watery malt, malt, and more malt to it with a little hint of sweetness with an acetic finish that lingers on the palate. On the palate it boasted a light body with fizzy carbonation. For a beer supposed to help the transfer into winter beers, I almost felt like I was drinking a light beer. One I will not be pouring again.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This is a very good "Oktoberfest" beer. It has a nice reddish light brown color. Has a nice blend of malt and a touch of hops, A good readily available autumn beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a caramel color. Tastes of caramel, malts, and sweetness in general. I’ve had this beer quite a few times over the years and it seems to vary over the years. My favorite being when it first came out. The possibility of my tastes changing are there though. I don’t dislike this beer.
I had this from tap and bottle.

A bit on the sweet as side for a marzen, but for the most part it’s typical for the style, is which is meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the seasonal sampler pack. Poured into snifter glass. Deep amber color with a nice and quickly dissipating head. Aroma has sweetness as it’s primary motivation. Some of the bready, cereal elements that are found in other Oktoberfest variations. Taste leans towards sweet characteristics much more than other Oktoberfest beers I’ve sampled. Bubble gum. Almost a candy-like quality. Thin mouthfeel especially at the finish. For a mainstream brewery, it’s actually not a bad effort. Almost feels mis-classified in the Oktoberfest category.

Another of the Samuel Adam’s brew that I like. It has a variety of spices that give it a distinctive flavor. Nothing sweet or harsh about it, just a smooth flavorful beer you can sit back enjoy.
