My "go to" beer of the fall. Others are good, maybe even better, but Sam Adams is readily available and I'm always happy with the fall sampler. Pours a dark amber copper color, tastes of toasted bread, a little cola, a touch of sweetness, light hops. Feel is medium bodied, light carbonation. Overall, a very great "go with anything" kind of beer.

You can tell it's an "Octoberfest" style beer, but wow it tastes very watery to me.
