    Frankenmuth Oktoberfest
    The overall smell for the Frankenmuth Oktoberfest is malty. It is easy to pick out a sweet bready aroma in the glass, with some toasted grains, and light caramel notes laying just below the surface. The first sip takes you right where a good Oktoberfest beer should. The malt flavors are warm and coat your mouth with a thin layer of sweetness. There is a bit of a toasted grain flavor that is typical for the style, and there is even a slight bit of a hops bite as well as a faint clove scent. The mouthfeel ends up making this beer a great session brew. There is no heaviness or thickness to be found here. The carbonation level is spot on, and helps keep the beer crisp and delicious.

  • Samuel Adams

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 winter’s heartier brews.

    Samuel Adams Boston Lager is an excellent example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex.

The Noble hop varieties, Hallertau Mittelfrueh and Tettnang-Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish. They are hand selected by Jim Koch and our other brewers from the world’s oldest hop growing area.
