Fall is in the air, well at least a little bit, but regardless of mother nature Octoberfest beers have started to hit the market. One of my favorites every year is from Sam Adams, with their Octoberfest. This was one of my first favorite craft style beers, let’s see how it fares now. Enter Octoberfest:
This beer pours into you glass a nice dark copper color, with a larger than normal head. The smells that come off of it are, like described, a “Malt lover’s dream.” Taste wise, this beer follows suit. Lots of malt flavors hit your tongue, but not overly sweet type malt flavors mind you. The beer is very rich, but not so rich that you can’t drink a few over a sitting. This is a great beer to introduce your “not into beer” friends to a decent seasonal beer.
If you are looking for a quality fall seasonal brew, I’m sure that you will be able to find this one, as it seems to be everywhere. And for the price, it is very hard to pass up. I usually pick it up quite a few times in the fall season. Well done!
