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%

Amber pour with off white head. Aroma is light grain and malt. Taste follows nose but is stronger. It adds a little sweet caramel. Not bad.

Kind of disappointing, expecting more flavor for an autumn brew. Not much different than a regular Sam Adams.

Amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts. Sweet malty flavour, caramel, malts. Dito finish. Bit too sweet for me, but the missus likes it.

Lovely deep amber colour with little lacing and slight cream head. Really sweet on the tongue with a bitter aftertaste. Very moorish and enjoyable

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - OCT 13, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa algo cristalina con una mediana actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de buena retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: dulce, notas a caramelo y algo de nueces. SABOR: similar al aroma, las notas a caramelo es lo que más destaca y que mayor permanencia tiene en el paladar, algo de nueces le acompañan. El retrogusto queda un amargor medio ligero con ligera persistencia de los sabores dulces. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, mediana baja carbonatación. RESUMEN: buena cerveza de acuerdo al estilo
