The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of this seasonal beer is the color. It has a rich, deep golden amber hue which itself is reflective of the season. This beer is a malt lover’s dream, masterfully blending together four 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.
