Hearty and smooth, brewed with select Moravian malt. The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of this seasonal beer is the color. Samuel Adams Octoberfest has a rich, deep golden amber hue which itself is reflective of the season. Samuel Adams Octoberfest is a malt lover's dream, masterfully blending together five roasts of barley to create a delicious harmony of sweet flavors including caramel and toffee. The beer is kept from being overly sweet by the elegant bitterness imparted by the German Noble hops. Samuel Adams Octoberfest provides a wonderful transition from the lighter beers of summer to the winter's heartier brews.
Vibrant amber color with a substantial cream-colored head. Offers rich aromas of roasted malt, Portobello mushrooms and fresh-baked bread with hints of apricot jam and hop florals. The palate is full and creamy with flavors of clean cereal and malt backed by hints of maple, sweet spice, and hop oils. Exhibits excellent balance and integration, with a touch of grapefruit pith on the finish.
