Had this on tap at Logan airport: One of Sam Adams' better beers. Has a decent malty presence and deep copper color. Nice sweetness throughout, but lacking in the refined hop presence. A decent and easily drinkable oktoberfest. bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Red to copper color when held to light, not much aroma or flavor but easy to drink and smooth going down. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 (Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a large creamy head. Overall a descent tasting Octoberfest. jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2003
deep amber brown color with lots of light bubbles. aroma is of toasty malt, and the head is delicate. it's a good fall lager, nice and malty with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. i like this one; it's nice and mild.

Bottle: Good nose, fruity, toasted malt. Small head. Clear brown/orange. Some lacing. Sour toasted malt flavor. Kinda creamy, some linguring bitterness. Its O.K., A safe Octoberfest.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 A mild, but very enjoyable and drinkable Octoberfest. Creamy head and respectably full mouthfeel save this from macrobrew oblivion. bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2003
amber with medium off white head. midly malty aroma, taste is mostly of sweet caramel malt with a slight fruitiness. somewhat watery, but decent and drinkable auto (163) - California, USA - OCT 18, 2003
has a light/offwhite head with a darkbrown/red/orange/ colour. with an alchoholic aroma, not bad. indescribable taste. not exciting but not bad by any means. egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Poured a light amber color with a tight, creamy, off white head that left some lacing. Slightly malty aroma. Malty sweet (caramel), buttery taste. WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Malty, sweet. Nothing offensive about this. Pretty standard octoberfest. Not a big Sam Adams fan, but this is pretty drinkable.
