355 ml bottle B and M Stores, Bristol - Pours clear, dark amber with a small white head. Small lacing. High carbonation. Smell - fruity citrus, touch of nuts. Taste - sweet, malty, touch of caramel. Nice drinkable beer.

This one is one of my favorites from Samuel Adams. I got it in the 'Harvest Collection', and I fell in love with it. It was also my first craft beer. I love how it's not hoppy at all.

Love it around autumn time . Gets me in the mood for fall and the holidays. Nice Amber color and good taste. Definitely a go to beer at that time of year. Nostalgic for me

Look: light, slightly orange-y Caramel color
Smell: caramel, very light hops
Taste: lightly malty flavor, sweet but not too sweet, hops perfectly balance the beer
Aftertaste: can definitely taste the malt with the aftertaste but it doesn't linger terribly long
Overall: I always eagerly anticipate this beer release in the fall. It is my favorite octoberfest brew. I am so looking forward to this years release!

The best of the Sam Adams seasonals. Perfect weight and fullness for a fall beer. Even my German friend likes this beer

This is a great beer to drink in the fall, the smell that it gives off after you pour it into a glass is pretty unique. Also the taste is great, there is really not a lot of beers that come close to the great taste of a Samuel Adams Octoberfest.

Looks, smells, and tastes like Autumn. The perfect fall beer and for me the most eagerly anticipated each year from BBC. Picked up an extra case to enjoy well into spring - right around their 'enjoy before' date matures - and reminisce about cool fall temps. Solid, solid beer.

More orange, less sweet, more spicy, longer lasting head than most Märzens I've had lately. Poured into smooth-sided 15 oz stein, a transparent, but lucid burnt orange. Not very aromatic, faint caramel in with the malt. Pleasant carbonation. Thirst-quenching. Comparatively clean finish.

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Caramel colour pour with minimal white head. Negligible carbonation. Smelled of sugar, caramel and hops. Sweet tasting beer, with a trace of caramel. Thin texture, light body.
