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%

This is the most incredible stuff I’ve drunk in fifty years on the planet. Lotta malt, dark, not much on hops -- hey, someone like me is finally making beer. Why can’t we have this stuff year ’round? Oh, yeah, if we did, they’d be taking me to Betty Ford....

Sam Adams Octoberfest has got to be the finnest beer on the market. From its festive packaging, to its rich, full flavor screaming and celebrating that fall is finally here. Cheers! Octoberfest Lover

Simply the best ever! A malt lover’s heaven! The color is absolutly magnificant to witness. But taste is all there. Nothing weak about this beer at all. It has everything! Goes great with steaks, and pork. Awesome!

Sorry for touting this one up, but it’s the first beer I ever bought, and I look forward to getting it every year. A good tail-gating beer. Not much substance to this review, but this beer gets me pumped for football

best beer I’ve had in years, perfect balanced taste. what else can i say. I’ve tried the other non seasonal beers and they are too hoppy or have an awful aftertaste but not this one. this should be available all year long,

One of my favorite seasonal beers. The smell and taste remind me of fall and it is so smooth to drink.
