Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Adam's pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear brown/amber color, with a light tan two-finger head that disappears rather quickly, leaving trace amounts of spotting.

Smell: Smells like pumpkins/pumpkin spice, yeasty, and very malty.

Taste: A definitely high amount of malts hits, with a backbone of pumpkin-like flavor. This is quite a malty brew, and quite delicious.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and body, I can drink a bunch of these in one sitting no problem.

Overall: A very nice brew that definitely reminds me of the fall.

Sam Adams Octoberfest

Appearance: amber, small head, and decent lacing.

Smell: yeast and malt grain.

Taste: malty grain, spices, and a slight hops.

Mouthfeel: medium.

This is a pretty good brew. There is a lot of malt character and also some spice and hops.

Part of the 2012 harvest pack, poured into a sam adams pint glass.

Appearence is copper/orange in color with a white head. Really does look like fall in a glass.

Smell is roasted malts,caramel and some hops.

Taste is pretty much how it smells. Caramel, toffee, and malts. Very pleasent.

Mouthfeel is very clean and easy to drink.Would have no problem putting down a few of these.

Overall, i really like this beer.It's a great American representation of the marzen style. I will definately be buying again.
