I really liked this beer, I was surprised by it being a seasonal and I've never been a huge fan of Sam Adams but this one really stuck with me.

I'm a fan of Octoberfest beers, so I wanted to try this one, and I wasn't disappointed. It's maybe a little too one-dimensional, as you taste the sweetness of the malt and the caramel more than anything else, but it's a good take on the style. I could have a few of these with some tubed meat and be pretty happy.

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.
