No offense to Sam Adams, but Harpoon is my favorite Boston brewery. Here’s a German-style Marzen for the Fall.
Beer: Harpoon Octoberfest
Brewer: Harpoon Brewery
Rating: *** (7.4 of 10)
Comments: This seasonal beer captures the feeling of autumn, crisp with the smell of burning leaves, and beautiful foliage all around. Indeed, the beer itself is a lovely dark red color with a foamy head, although the head disappears a bit too quickly. The beer’s aroma is a musty caramel and the taste is initially bitter, but with a spicy aftertaste that tingles the tongue. Here’s to the season, Prost!
