look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice amber/orange color which looks perfect for fall. I had this both on tap and in a bottle and I must say that where I had it must've taken great care of their taps. Also out of the bottle I found their to be less scent.

But anyway, I went into octoberfest expecting not to like it since everyone in the world built it up like crazy, but after trying hacker pschorr's and brooklyns, I must say Sam adams is awesome.

Light crisp, malty, and brisk. Just a tad bit tinny and slightly sweet.
