Appearance: Amber; clear; medium, frothy head, long lasting, good lacing

Aroma: Malty; sweet; slightly bready

Taste: Juicy, malty, zippy on start; goes into a cola-like mouthfeel in the mid; finishes slightly hoppy and semi-sweet; a little thin, and not particularly noteworthy

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

I tried some very good fall beers last year, but for some reason I love coming back to the Marzen style Sam Adams Octoberfest. For me it's the quintessential Autumn beer. It pours a deep amber color and possesses a sweet malty finish. A very nice divergence from many of the Highly Hopped IPAs around NE Ohio.

Sam Adams Octoberfest will always remain one of my favorites for the Autumn Season.
