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.
A tell-tale sign that summer's finally here is when your favorite local watering hole has updated their Sam Seasonal tap to Summer Ale. A slightly hazy, golden apricot color in the glass, this easy-drinking, warm- weather beer offers attractive notes of lemon, bread dough, allspice and a pinch of white pepper. Flavors of toasted wheat and lemon flesh out the mildly grainy, textured palate. Refreshing, with vibrant carbonation and a clean finish accented by hints of citrus pith.
