Poured Samuel Adams Octoberfest into a Samuel Adams Glass.

A - The beer pours a dark amber color with three fingers of off white creamy head.

S - Slight sweet notes, with light malts and smooth hops. Getting some slight fruity aroma as well.

T - Much better here, the flavor comes through with smooth roasted malts, light toffee and carmel. Light hops on the finish.

M - The mouthfeel is light to medium, medium carbonation.

O - A really nice octoberfest beer. Drink up! Cheers!

2013 release in July. Hmm poured into a mug.
A - It's brown and it's orange. Small bubbles of carbonation racing to the top. Good head retention.
S- Sweet toasted malt. Hops. Subtle but balanced.
T- Nice grain profile, starts sweet and ends with a nice touch of hop bitterness.
M - Medium carbonation. Frothy.
O - I buy 12 bottles every year and I enjoy it every year. It's good. Will try it again next year.
