Best by Jan 2013 date on bottle.

Served in a pint glass.

a. A dark golden color. Head is a slight off white color.

s. I can't quite get what the smell of this is, it is not offensive but not the most appealing.

t. this is maybe the most generic octoberfest beer I have ever had. It is not offensive but is not bad either.

m. for some reason this beer tastes almost syrupy to me.

o. not a hateful beer, but not the best. The good things are you can find it almost any where. I will gladly buy it again in the fall season.

I have been very tough on Sam Adams, but I'm pretty high on this beer, and I am likely -on my next visit- here to up the score after my 2nd Octoberfest beer.

Beautiful amber darkish fall beer that glows like a lava light. Finished with a smooth and thick wonderful caramel taste. Very sweet. If you enjoy Modelo Negra, for example, then you will love Octoberfest.

This beer would go nicely with a wonderful cd called TIME TRAVEL by Gunter Muller & Otomo Yoshihide on a cool fall night while the fire roasts in your craftsman style home.
