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%

bnokk (516) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2016
APPEARANCE- amber color, very clear. NOSE- maltiness. FLAVOR- also malty sweetness and good body. NOTES- touted to be a classic octoberfest style - sort of marzen, I’m a fan.

Raistlin (371) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
It pours amber red, almost colour of fall leaf. Has a decent head, which settles quickly. Nose has mild notes of noble hops and caramel. Taste is malty with a mildly bitter short finish. Lively carbonation and slick medium palate. A good and straightforward beer. Like that there is not spicy finish to it like many other beers of this style.

SvanteL (437) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2016
Mycket vackert bärnstensfärgad, gräddfärgat skum. I doften finns knäck, lite russin och apelsin. Smaken är knäckigt söt, aningen bränt socker, lite russin, lite apelsinskal mot slutet och en fin liten beska. Mycket fyllig och god oktoberöl,

On tap at Max and Erma’s. Pours a dark amber color with an off white head. Aromas of caramel and malt. Tastes the same with some nutty notes and bread flavors. Not bad. Light mouth feel.
