What Would Eli Drink?
Sam Adams Octoberfest Ale
WWED Grade: B

Appearance: Definitely amber in color. Kinda golden amber.
Smell: Musky and sweet. Definitely got some malt in this one.
Taste: Kinda sweet. Not too bitter. Definitely malty. Like a malted caramel.
Mouthfeel: Goes down very easy – like water…with hops, yeast, malt, barley and likely a couple other grains. Light carbonation.

ABV: 5.4%
Serving Type: Pint at Chug Pub in San Francisco.

Imagine the surprise Sam Adams had after InBev bought Anheuser-Bush, and they, Sam Adams (an American Craft Brewery) were now the largest American owned brewery in the states! Pretty cool, eh? Okay – about the beer. Wasn’t bad at all, and somewhat traditional for an Octoberfest Ale. Wanna learn more about that? Click here. Kinda sweet, not too hoppy – more malty. It was light and easy though, not terribly filling. I could easily drink a couple of these. But it wasn’t so great that it’d be the only beer I’d want at a bar with 15 taps. Worth tryin’ though.
