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%

Bavarian_Beer (49) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2015
On tap Pours an amber color with a thick off white head that just doesn’t quit. Malty, lightly toasted & sweet cheap beer aroma. Very sweet malty beer and incredibly smooth.Not true to style but drinkable. I guess is what octoberfest is all about. Excellent drinkability & flavor thats a little on the cheap malt liqoure side but done better.

355ml bottle. Clear copper with disappearing foamy beige bubbles. Flavors are toasted cereals, molasses, toffee, butterscotch and leaves with fruity and nutty notes. Medium body, good carbonation, thin texture.

22oz bomber into dimple mug. Best by March 2016. Aroma - Biscuits, toffee, caramel. Maybe a hint of cinnamon or nutmeg? Apperance - Very pretty deep, copper color with an off-white head. Spotty wisps of lacing. Taste - Semi-sweet caramel/ toffee at first followed by toasted bread. Biscuit flavors linger on the palate. Reserved floral hops enter the fold on the finish. Palate - Medium bodied. Dry finish. Overall - Sweeter than what I see as the principal examples of the style (Ayinger/ Sierra Nevada) but a very good American take.

Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Decent, but entirely forgettable. Poured from a bottle. Mild malty aroma, with a taste that you’d expect in an amber: sweet malt with a mild spice and very little hop presence. It was drinkable, but the malt didn’t have the spiced, complex caramel malt presence of better beers in the style.

Seffle (455) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle from SB 151023. Beautiful clear coppery amber with lacing white head. Sweet aroma with toffee/treacle. Malty and bready palate with nice caramelle toffee but a nice bitter twist. Lasting roasted taste. Very nice, indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is caramel malt and barley. The taste is caramel, bread, hay, and some squash. I find a lot of their beers to be unnecessarily filling and heavy. It’s not a bad beer. It’s not the best interpretation of the style though.

Flaska hos svärföräldrarna. Rödbrun vätska med vitt skum. Doftar lätt av malt och lite frukt. Smakar malt och lätt av torkad frukt. Ganska menlös. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet malty aroma. Malty and slightly bitter taste. Average Octoberfest but better than a lot of others.
