Serving Type: Bottle

Poured into a Heineken Pint Glass

A- Pours a deep amber colour that is almost orange in nature. This beautiful hue is topped with delicious 2 1/2 finger lumpy head that is stuff of absolute perfection. Samuel Adams Octoberfest is a stunning beer to behold.

S- The aroma of this brew is pure sweetness! Tons of malt action going on that is well accented by some caramel notes . The scent is not offensive in any way and is actually quite inviting!

T- Much of the taste is similar to the aroma but without the sweetness. Lots of malt notes going on along with the caramel notes that are accompanied by some interesting toffee/taffy-like flavours in the aftertaste (think salt water taffy). Incredibly delicious and very satisfying.

M- Low-Medium carbonation that is appropriate for the style. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick but not chewy by any standards: Very nice indeed..

O- Samuel Adams Octoberfest, although being my first taste into the Oktoberfest style, was an enjoyable experience to say the least. Not only is the beer nice to look at but it holds some beautiful aromas and tastes that leave you in satisfaction. This brew is easily my favourite Lager and also my new favourite Samuel Adams beer! Well done, guys!
