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.

A bit better than last year. Still yearning for the beer they brewed years ago. I use to buy 10 cases when it was a craft brew.....unfortunately, now mass produced it has lost the subtle flavors that made it great. I'm now down to one beer a year.
