I've been drinking Sam Adams Octoberfest for five seasons now, and it never disappoints. With its auburn color and thin head it looks tasty in a chilled mug(my dad's trusty Stroh's mug to be exact.)

It smells hoppy, with hints of various spices. Taste-wise it hits the the tongue and you get a tangy pinch on the taste buds. Malts, hops, and various autumn spices create a refreshing experience. It's not a heavy beer, so they go down smooth. The colder the better.

For me, Sam Adams Octoberfest is a fall tradition, like Halloween and the changing of the leaves. Without it autumn wouldn't be the same.

My personal favorite Sam Adam's beer, too bad its a seasonal. Beautiful dark, orange color. Smell is of rich malts and spices. Taste is full, yet mellow, slightly hoppy and very malty with some nice spices coming through. Very solid all around beer, will buy it again and again as long as it's in season.
