BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams)
Massachusetts, United States
samueladams.com

Style: German Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
In 1810, the Oktoberfest tradition was born when Munich celebrated the Crown Prince's wedding with a special beer and 16-day party. Our version of this classic style blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor of caramel, creating a brew that's perfect for the season, or whatever you're celebrating. Smooth with a roasty sweetness, and light hop character.

Overall like it. Always have. Poured nice almost amber color into chilled glass. Decent head that fades quickly. Nice malt flavor. Crisp, refreshing, goes down easy. Nice, dependable Octoberfest from SA.

Similar to the Boston lager without all the hoppiness. But its still a fantastic beer, especially if you like a malty lager.

Poured a dark orange into a frozen glass. Deep sweet malt with good carbonation. Some bread notes as well. Pretty good overall.
