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%

Slightly malty with a touch of fruit makes this a decent, drinkable beer. Nothing outstanding, but satisfying.

First tried this @ 34 degrees. Didn't think much of it, then after it began to warm up, got much more flavor from this. Not a bad Ocktoberfest beer. Very drinkable.

beeebon (305) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a copper amber colour with minimal tan fizzy head which doesn’t linger. Aroma is strong sweet malt, burtn brown sugar and some orange. Taste is initially rather sweet but quicklydrying and pleasingly bitter, nicely balanced. Watery in the mouth although slightly slick too. For 89p a bottle from B&M Bargains this is pretty nice!

Martin243 (894) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
5.5% 355 ml bottle from B&M. Poured into a lager glass. Aroma of caramel and farmyard. Dark amber with a pillowy white head. Heavy caramel malty sweetness. Sticky texture. No my thing at all

jamesie1857 (1662) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
330ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Rich orange -brown body with a fluffy white top. Sweet malty nose with subtle hop aroma, then a roast malty body with burnt toffee, hints of oranges and roast nuts and then a dry-ish and a sweet lasting end. For 79p - superb.

BeerViking (3170) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from B&M. Deep amber-brown with little head. Nose has toffee and a little toast. Body is sweet caramel, with some toasted malty and a little nuttiness. Finish is sweet and lightly bitter. Too sweet but otherwise an average Märzen.

willisread (829) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 10, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours an amberish red with an off-white head. Nice toasted malt and toffee aromas present on the nose with a slight bit of citrus noticeable. Sweet on the palate with a light body. Fairly refreshing. Not bad.
