OK so this is one of the last sam adams beer I haven't had. I'm pretty happy to be nearing the end of their normal rotation and this one gets some GREAT reviews by my friends.
Anyway this is my second beer of the night as the first one left me interested but not ready to decide (a good hour between them). This beer is warmer and I'll just say that it should be served on the warm side.
A quick smell will tell you that this is a fairly malty beer. It doesn't have a fruity or sweet smell. Oddly enough the taste is about the same.
My only other octoberfest was from spatan and it was much sweeter and almost had a fruity flavor to it. I was really hoping for something on that side but I supose sam adams isn't one to go extreme with this style.
This is a nice looking beer with a nice malty flavor that is very very drinkable . It goes down easy, it's light and smooth. That said it's not interesting. It doesn't really make you want more. It's got enough flavor to mix well wtih foods but I'm not really sure what this "season's confort foods" are supposed to be.
Serving type: bottle
