Now Quaffing: Sam Adams Octoberfest

This beer pours a clear copper with a large tan head. Head dissipates quickly and there is little lacing. Nice sweet aroma with some earthiness to it. There is a nice medium body to the mouthfeel that lets you know the beer is there. Tastes are sweet--fruity and malty, with a slightly bitter finish. This is a very drinkable brew despite its mass production.

Better than Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen and Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest-Märzen.

this is a pretty damn good beer...not the best octo fest but good. amber in color, good head, some decent lacing, good flava and body. malts ruled with some good hop cutting through. this is a malt based beer that is decent body but not too filling. give it a try

suckem up and movem out
