Beer Review: Harpoon Octoberfest

No offense to Sam Adams, but Harpoon is my favorite Boston brewery.  Here’s a German-style Marzen for the Fall.

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!
