2.73/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - poured from a bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. 2 finger off white head died off very quickly. Color is an enticing red/orange, just how you would picture a fall leaf.

Smell - no particular smell really pops out at me. Smell alcohol, some earthy smells. Grass, dirt...haha.

Taste - really not that impressed. I enjoyed Great Lakes and Yuenglings offerings far better.

Mouthfeel - a bit watery.

Overall - a pretty average Sam Adams offering as well as a pretty average Octoberfest offering.

Serving type: bottle

3.5/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams Glass.

Appearance: Clear darker amber in color with an off white head, head was about one finger and faded quickly leaving a thin residue on the top.

Smell: Fruity, nutty, with malts and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter taste up front, but no offensive. Nutty notes, with some mild sweetness too. definately some wheat too.

Overall: Not a bad Oktoberfest brew. Not the best I have had, but still it is good.
