I love this time of year - the summer heat is starting to fade, and it's time for a new season. No, not football - the fall beer season. Octoberfest beers are starting to hit the shelves, and this is definitely my favorite time for beers. Tonight we grabbed some of what I think is one of the best beers that Sam Adams makes. Their Octoberfest is very full-flavored with a beautiful golden red hue.
A delicious malty taste is what first hits with a very smooth after taste. This is a great session beer. I give it an A-. This is definitely my favorite octoberfest beer that is made by a big producer - definitely worth picking up.
Aroma: Very mild earthy aroma.
Appearance: Golden amber with a light head.
Flavor: Tastes like a lager - great amber ale.
Body: Full Flavored but still not too heavy.
Happy Octoberfest everybody!
