Sam Adams is my fallback beer. If there isn't anything on the menu appealing or the options are mostly commercial I'll get Sam. Its nice that there are such a varirty. Lately, the seasonals aren't very seasonal, i.e. summer available in April, oktoberfest in may.
Quite possibly the best beer out there! Nice caramel/nutty flavors . Perfect for the fall. I usually try to stock up on this one to carry me over into the winter months. I Always look forward to this one in the fall!
This is a great beer for the overall feel of fall. The spices are there but it's not overwhelmingly pumpkin (like many others). Delicious beer to drink by the fire or watching a football game... or really whenever.
Depends on what you mean by economical. I think it might be a buck or two more expensive than your standard Bud or Bud Light twelve pack. (At least in NY). Even though it is a seasonal beer, it still is Sam Adams, so it's not as expensive as a microbrew or specialty beers. All that said, it's yummy, so definitely worth a try.
