A - Pours a beautiful copper with a small and quickly dissipating head.
S - Brown sugar, malts, and a bit of metal? It can smell great one minute and kind of metallic the next.
T - Very malty while still being refreshing and crisp. Maybe a tad sweeter than I like but overall very enjoyable!
M - Medium bodied, could use a bit more carbonation in my opinion.
D - One of the most drinkable beers I've had in a while, these are guaranteed not to last long in your fridge!

Around this time last year I had my first oktoberfest beer. This was the one. Nice reddish copper with a thin head. Light caramel in the smell, not much. Some caramel in the taste and a bit of honey sweetness. Hops are more present than most in this style but still are subdued. You can't really go wrong with a Sam Adams no matter what the style. My first but deffinately not my last.

Good but not great beer pretty much sums it up. Picked up a 24 pack of bottles for really cheap. Pours a nice deep amber, small head that doesn't last very long. Slight malty smell, Taste is fine, no flavors really jump out at you, but nothing bad either. Good mouthfeel, not too thin. Very drinkable.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass
A: Dark copper, about a two finger head that had great retention throughout the entire time. Very clear as well.
S: Malty, bready, slight hint of caramel.
T: Sweet, very bready and biscuity, caramel, hardly any hop flavor or bitterness.
MF: Smooth, creamy, no alcohol taste, and no bitterness.
O: This is a great Oktoberfest beer and I thought the strong malty flavor was great for this style of beer. I've had other beers of this style but this Sam Adams version has more robust flavor in my opinion. A good beer to have with lightly seasoned meats and poultry.
