3.75/5 rDev +2.2%
Serving Type: Bottle
Poured into a Heineken Pint Glass
A- Pours a deep amber colour that is almost orange in nature. This beautiful hue is topped with delicious 2 1/2 finger lumpy head that is stuff of absolute perfection. Samuel Adams Octoberfest is a stunning beer to behold.
S- The aroma of this brew is pure sweetness! Tons of malt action going on that is well accented by some caramel notes . The scent is not offensive in any way and is actually quite inviting!
T- Much of the taste is similar to the aroma but without the sweetness. Lots of malt notes going on along with the caramel notes that are accompanied by some interesting toffee/taffy-like flavours in the aftertaste (think salt water taffy). Incredibly delicious and very satisfying.
M- Low-Medium carbonation that is appropriate for the style. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick but not chewy by any standards: Very nice indeed..
O- Samuel Adams Octoberfest, although being my first taste into the Oktoberfest style, was an enjoyable experience to say the least. Not only is the beer nice to look at but it holds some beautiful aromas and tastes that leave you in satisfaction. This brew is easily my favourite Lager and also my new favourite Samuel Adams beer! Well done, guys!

a: its a very clear dark amber color with some hints of brown and low ruby red. 3 finger white somewhat-rocky head
s: malts, malts malts. caramel, sweet toffee, hint of baking sugar. a very faint hint of dark fruit
t: not as overly sweet as the aroma indicated. there is definitely a ton of malts in here - caramel, toffee, light brown sugar. but there is also a pretty big, what i'll call, lager quality in here. almost like a bready cracker. perhaps the yeast? finishes with a bunch more malt toffee sweetness, and something with a hint of bitterness; like a very faint earthy leaf bitterness.
m: its a medium moth feel. on the lower side of medium carbonation
o: it is what it is. i know people seem to polarize around this beer, but its an easy drinker that is loaded with malts. its not too complex, and it may not be the truest to the style, but its a nice drinker after a day of work when you don't want to think too much about what you're drinking
