Upon opening the Samuel Adams Octoberfest, I poured the beer into a tulip glass to maximize the aroma of the beer, and allow me to examine the color. It appeared quite red but remarkably clear with a thick tan head that looked almost perfect.
Aroma was that of bittersweet balance, the maltiness commingled with the aroma hops to make your nose want to drink this beer.
Taste was incredibly well balanced, a wash of sweet pale malt and dark caramel malts, which balanced well with what seemed to be a moderate mix of noble hops, and what I think were hallertau hops. The two played off each other to make one of the best balanced beers I could have imagined.
Feeling the beer in your mouth was a delight, light, carbonated to perfection with enough substance to really deliver the flavor.
Overall I loved this beer, it is by far one of my favorite Oktoberfest styles.
