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%

yespr (31235) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma and flavour. Has a slight citric bitter edge to the maltiness. Sweet flavoured wtih caramel and toffee notes. Otherwise straight forward brew, lacks a bit of finesse to work out perfect as a an Oktoberfest brew, but decent as it is.

An amber beer with a good head. The aroma is a nice fruitiness. The flavor is very filling and of a good maltblend, it ends on a slight bitter note. A nice beer.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2003
Bottled. Reddish brown. Buttery caramel aroma. Roasty with clean crystal malt character. Not even remotely similar to an oktoberfest beer. After a promising nose it just dies.
