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%

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Dark amber/copper color with a powerful thick cloud of activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head that last around 15 minutes, with some very good leggings. Flavors of ginger bread, caramel, pumpkins, sweet roasted grains, ginger, cinnamon, lemon, apple, noble spices. Pleasant sweetness coupled with good sharpness. Slick smooth full body with prickly carbonation. A little oily and syrupy. Light finish that lingers a little, ending with a faint grassy and roasted malty feel with soft fruity sharpness. Overall excellent quality craft. Delicious and super fresh. Balanced flavors with a nice intensity. Filling yet tender, pleasing and easy to drink.

tfontana (1002) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Signal Variety. Appearance is clear amber with trace sparkle, quickly fading negligible bubbly head with no lacing. Aroma is strong caramel malts, toast, light nuttiness and fruit. Taste is bread, light caramel. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, soft-to-average carbonation and dry, biscuity finish. Overall, beautiful color and aroma has some complexity but the rest of the beer doesn’t live up to it. Middle of the road.

3.6
Zymurgeist2 (2272) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 15, 2016
The best offering on draft at the Chili’s in Gilroy while returning home. Pours a very clear dark amber with an off white head that is small, but retains. Both aroma and flavor have an overt malt richness. Some faint toast and plenty of caramel and bread loaf. This was quite tasty and enjoyable for a fest beer.

3.6
Cajun (534) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle - Pours deep amber, off-white head. Notes of caramel, toffee, baked bread. Definitely flavor of sweet malt, also caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, spices, hint of fruit. Crisp. Pleasant hops finish. Good brew.
