The O-fest is my favorite Sam's seasonal. Had my first of this years batch Friday night. I like it. Seemed a lot smoother than last year.

Less hop aroma than last year. I was a little disappointed with last years for this reason. That said, other than their special batches, this is the only sam adams I consistently love.

usually my favorite SA and one of my favorite Octoberfest beers. They have been increasing the hops a little more each year the last few years to the point, it just isn't a fest beer anymore. Still good but to hoppy for an octoberfest

I've had it both on tap and in bottle this year. Don't know why, but I enjoyed it a lot more on tap.

Agree that its better on tap. Had it for the first time 5 years ago, it was great. Since then Becks Oktoberfest has been my fav, although I have to say that since ive been trying others, they are both fading to the background.

Bottled: Nothing :(
Kegged: Nothing :(
Primary: Empty
Secondary: Empty
On Deck: Deception Cream Stout, BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde, Yooper's Oatmeal Stout, Joe's Ancient Orange Mead, Reaper's Mild
