I like this one. Frankly, I really enjoy most of the Sam Adams seasonal beers. They are distinct, but at the same time not at all busy. Their Octoberfest is a wonderful malty, caramel-tinged beer perfect for transitioning into the colder weather. It goes down smooth and begs to be followed with another. An exemplary Marzen and very easy to find across the nation.

Best by Jan 2013 date on bottle.

Served in a pint glass.

a. A dark golden color. Head is a slight off white color.

s. I can't quite get what the smell of this is, it is not offensive but not the most appealing.

t. this is maybe the most generic octoberfest beer I have ever had. It is not offensive but is not bad either.

m. for some reason this beer tastes almost syrupy to me.

o. not a hateful beer, but not the best. The good things are you can find it almost any where. I will gladly buy it again in the fall season.
