Samuel Adams Octoberfest

  • SRM Color : 13
  • Brewer: Samuel Adams
  • Brewer's Description: Brewed with five varieties of malted barley for a big, rich flavor. The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of this seasonal beer is the color. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest has a rich, deep reddish amber hue which itself is reflective of the season. Samuel Adams Octoberfest masterfully blends together five roasts of malt to create a delicious harmony of sweet flavors including caramel and toffee. The malt is complimented by the elegant bitterness imparted by the Bavarian Noble hops. Samuel Adams Octoberfest provides a wonderful transition from the lighter beers of summer to the heartier brews of winter.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Session Glass
  • Russ' rating: 8 of 10
  • With the brew: Pumpkin Carving
  • Comments: Pouring out at a rich clear copper color, Samuel Adams Octoberfest has a very pleasant aroma and is easy on the eyes as it is on the palate. It smells of Grains and Malt, with very little Hoppy note. The head consisted of average size bubbles (0.5mm - 0.7mm) and while shorter than I would have liked to look at, it lasted the entire glass. The Hops are more pronounced as the brew is drank, giving the beer a very rich and balanced flavor. As the Brewer's description implies, the beer is heartier than many lighter Ales, but not as thick as a Porter or a Stout. It drinks easily and happily to the bottom of the glass. In general Samuel Adams has crafted another fine Beer, that I would suggest to any fan of this seasonal variety.
