First review of Red Robin’s Sam Adams Oktoberfest milkshake

Colin Joliat Alcohol & Food Editor

Katie Nolan first introduced you to the Red Robin & Samuel Adams Oktoberfest milkshake, but now we have the first video review.

This Spring I took a test to determine if I was a supertaster (yes, that’s a real thing), and discovered that I was not. This didn’t come as a surprise, but it was nice to know with 100% confidence that I’m a failure. Supertasters get hit by bitterness much harder than the rest of us, so you won’t find them kicking back with a double IPA. While it would be cool to claim I had a superhuman palate, I’d much rather enjoy hops liberally. What does that have to do with this milk shake? Nothing, but I haven’t had it so there’s nothing really to add.
