I found this to be a very rich, and smooth offering from Sam Adams. I am a fan of Octoberfest bears and Sams didn't disappoint for a large beer brewer.

Poured into a pint glass with a deep copper, amber color. Creamy thick head with a touch of lacing that stuck around even after a few sips.

Smell - was that of mild malt, roasted barley with a slight floral hint.

Taste - initial taste is floral and nutty yet not overly sweet with a hint of caramel, and autumn spice towards the end.

Mouthfeel - very drinkable light, crisp, medium carbonation seasonal

This is not a bad offering from Sam Adams and overall a very drinkable beer. 4 pints later and I didn't get tired of it.
