Samuel Adams OctoberFest

Samuel Adams OctoberFest 1
Samuel Adams OctoberFest. 5.3% abv. 16 IBU. Seasonal brew. Deep copper color. Finger of white foamy head that gradually falls to a thick collar. Good retention and lace. Nose of toffee, roasted malt. Front taste of sweet malt, caramel, biscuits, nutty. Aftertaste of warm brown sugar, dark fruit, nutty, distant herbal. Medium body. Mouthfeel is warm, smooth, creamy, coating the tongue.

This is an excellent beer, one of the better Oktoberfest brews to come out each fall season. The taste from beginning to end is high malt, sweet, rich, smooth, with a creamy finish. I love trying the many different Oktoberfest beers offered each year, but this one is a reliable standard. Highly recommended.

From the brewery:

"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 rich malts for a hearty, smooth flavor with notes of caramel creating a brew that’s perfect for the season, or whatever you’re celebrating. Cheers!"
