Samuel Adams Octoberfest


no abv given

I had actually picked this up a few days ago, as I started to stockpile my Octoberfest selections. All my East Coast beer drinking friends swear by Sam Adams Octoberfest, but much to their dismay last year's offering was universally panned. This years offering is better, but still suffers from the Sam Adams blandness. You could tell this was an Octoberfest, but everything is very muted in comparison to the Paulaner. Much less nose, much less malty sweetness. Also quite thin in mouthfeel.

We'll see how it stacks up against other offerings as the week progresses.
