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%

Picked this one during Halloween season, had it while watching Blade Runner 2049. Nice movie, very nice beer for a marzen.

BeerInHeaven (500) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 pours copper amber with a decent beige head. Light malt aroma. Taste of caramel malts. Faint hop presence. Not as sweet as others I've had in the style. Fairly quick finish with just a touch of sweet linger. Not bad.

Pours light amber golden with a nice white head and an aroma of malt with a hint of caramel. Tastes of slightly sweet malt with a hint of caramel balanced mildly with hops. It’s medium to light bodied with lively carbonation.

Luneylane (267) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JAN 13, 2018
A bottle from Jasons, near NCCU. Aroma: a bit malty. Appearance: clear reddish amber, head dissipates to nothing. Palate: Medium-bodied and oily, average carbonation, predominantly bitter at the finish. Taste: medium bitter, some vanilla. Good value for money, markedly more flavoursome than the Boston lager.

Bottle from Tops. Dark copper coloured. Caramel, biscuit, some dried fruits.

OsuStu (287) - - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 12 oz bottle. Amber color with a bit of an orange hue. Head is a light brown that shrinks quickly. Aromas of caramel, white bread, leaves, and clove. Taste is similar. Some decent carbonation adds a little to the character.

De geur is helemaal niet goed. Mooi flesje. De smaak is niet zo slecht als de geur maar toch ook nog niet goed. Niet mijn ding
