Now I know what you all thinking, its APPLE season and here I am writing about Sam Adams Octoberfest no worries I’ll write about a hard cider soon but for now its fall and I think this beer deserves to be put on the spot.
While wandering around Godard park I could see summer was definitely over, leaves changing old timers wandering around the beach area probably thinking to themselves what the hell happened man. But enough about my day let’s get to the beer.
I acquired this beer well in a package store and brought it home, down the throat into the stomach to warp
my brain cells to a different world of aromas and explode my tastes buds.
It poured with amber, orange color with a fluffy, white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving little to no lacing. There is not much to smell on this one, maybe making out some sweetness from the malts ever so slightly. Taste is sweet up front then it transitions into a mild spiciness that lingers into an aftertaste that hangs around. Some carbonation but disappears pretty quickly. At 5.30 ABV it is a normal beer.
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 hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel creating a brew that’s perfect for the season, or whatever you’re celebrating. And that my friends is history in the making.
My overall impression is well done Sam Adams Brewery; ever since I tried this beer three years ago I became addicted to it. Some food I would pare it with would be any finger food for football season, also a good piece of prime rib. I would advise against cellaring this beer and drink as is.
