2012 new label
P: Beautiful glazed copper body that looks similar to orange jello. Fast fading inch of foamy off white orange tinted head that dissolves to almost nothing. Slow moving carbonation.
S: Rich roasted malts, syrup, candy sugar, caramel, honey wheat bread, spices, hawaiian sweet rolls, toasted grains, mild citrus oils.
T/M: Taste follows the nose with rich and full flavor roasted malts. Sweet but mellow and earthy with almost pumpkin pie spices. Full bodied and sticky to the mouth with a good sting of carbonation and a semi dry whisper of herbal hops at the end.
O: This was one of my first beers from the Boston Beer Company that I tried and loved. I look forward to this every year. Its a mellow but rich beer that packs loads of complex flavors that are well mingled together and very refined. I have yet to try many oktoberfest/Marzen but I look forward to expanding my horizon. Until then old Sam keeps me pretty happy.
