This is my favorite seasonal offering from Sam Adams.
It always pours a nice creamy head with some carbonation.
The taste is a malt lovers dream ... 5 malts right ? Toffee and caramel aromas.
A medium mouthfeel and and a medium finish . A fall delight for sure .
Let's say we look forward to these fall brews after a long hot summer ..

I like this one. Frankly, I really enjoy most of the Sam Adams seasonal beers. They are distinct, but at the same time not at all busy. Their Octoberfest is a wonderful malty, caramel-tinged beer perfect for transitioning into the colder weather. It goes down smooth and begs to be followed with another. An exemplary Marzen and very easy to find across the nation.
