Beer Review: Samuel Adams Octoberfest
The first taste is probably the best. It's got a nice, crisp bite to it. The flavor is a blend of roasted barley that gives the beer a caramel, almost sweet, flavor. Think "sweet" is the bready, grain sense. The finish is sort of malty, but fairly smooth overall. It's a decent beer that is somewhere between a lighter Summer brew and a heavier Winter beer. It's a transition beer. I would try it again, but I doubt I would want a six pack of it. It's good, but it's not something that I would want to drink the entire night. Although, it would be interesting in beer bread. Yes, you can make bread with beer and yes, I have done it. Maybe there will be a beer bread tutorial on here in the near future. We'll see.
