Meh. Not all that impressed; like most Sams this is a dumbed down version of the real deal that's marketed to the newcomer to the micro- scene. Would order it if there's no other Marzen's on tap and the month happens to be October. But otherwise, meh.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours crystal clear dark golden with a decent white head. Pleasant smell of sweet caramel notes followed by some nuttiness. Taste follows nose with a sweet caramel/nuttiness, follow by an earthy smooth clean finish. Mouth feel is pretty smooth, medium bodied, and lightly carbonated. Overall a decent Oktoberfest for Samuel Adams with a great price tag to boot. Not a bad seasonal if you just want an easy drinking malty brew, cheers!
