I have always loved Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer. This is one of the beers that made be really start to notice that there is more to beer that penny pitcher night at bash riprocks in Lubbock.
I had this offering on tap at the Angry Dog in Dallas. Pours a clear dark amber color that has a decent head. Nice malty smell. The taste is great. Malty sweet with perfect carbonation. Inviting mouthfeel and a beer I could have all night.

Arrives beautifully dark, dark orange almost red in color and with a smallish tan head. Drops to a ring that lasts for a long time.
Smell is malty, grassy with a light hops note and caramel.
Taste is of lightly roasted malts, caramel, grass, hops.
Reasonably rich in flavor, medium-full bodied, medium effervescence. A bit sharp up front but fading well. Nice aftertaste of malty caramel. A Decent marzen for a beer that is so widely available.
