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%

I found this bottle at the drink of the world in Geneva, the day of the Giant statues party in Geneva. I drank it the last saturday at Bonfol, for the aperitive. In my own opinion, it is a classic of the Bavarian Land, coming from Boston and following the tradition. There is nothing exciting but it is fully drinkable, easy and refreshing. Firstly the taste is malty and metalic, hop and I think dry for the style, typical taste of Märzen, a bit watery. The color is copper, clear and the carbonation is normal, thin and white foam. I prefer the märzen of Luzerner brewery but this one is decent.

330ml bottle. Dark amber-brown with off white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, bready malts, nuts, dried fruits and orange. Taste is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, sweet dried fruits, nuts and candied orange peel. Medium, very smooth mouthfeel, light to medium carbonation and sweet candied aftertaste with a light bitter touch in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Bottle from systembolaget. Seemed a pretty decent beer to me, funny how it takes Sameul Adams to make a better Octoberfest beer than most German ones on the market. Need to reverify this. Re-rated. Some tofee, lots of malt, some caramel. Re-confirmed at 3.1.

Dark gold in color. Big caramel nose. No noticeable hops. Quite drinkable, but I found this much too sweet.

5,5%. Oktober i Boston låter inte som något som ligger högt upp på resebyråns försäljningslista. Och den här oktoberfesten kommer inte heller att generera några folkvandringar. Arom av russin och torkat gräs med smak av mild karamellmalt. Öldrickarna lär fortsätta att vallfärda till München och den här Boston-brygden kommer inte att ändra på den saken.

Another great taste, more filling. Carmel, hops and a smile on your face. Thinking of fall as you drink this ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
