same as every year... the best thing about Sam Adams is that they make nice solid bottles for refilling w/ homebrew

Every year I find myself liking it less and less. I think it's because every year I try more and more beers. I had a bottle last night because, being from Boston I feel like I need to, but it was pretty meh.


The Winter Lager on tap is still one of my all time favs though.

I agree, each year I find myself liking it less and less. Still an okay brew but nothing special.

It is ok, generally not my favorite Sam Adams seasonal. Though I will say it was better then the Porter I brewed in May. I am hoping bottle conditioning will save that beer. It is getting better, now at least it is drinkable.

For some reason the last time I had SA Ocktoberfest ( two years ago) it was maybe a little sweeter than this year. But then again maybe its cause I did not get any last year and my tastebuds dont know the difference.

I like this year's Sam Adams' Oktoberfest. Not the best on the planet but good. They have made a lot of good beer.. not a whole lot of great beer.. but mostly good. They do also have enough variety to hit some good notes for everyone. For a brewery their size I think they are doing well with bringing real beer to people.

Now I'm going to have some beer from my keezer.
