Holy Cow - my mouth is watering looking at this picture. I LOVE Octoberfest, a night by the bon fire and my boots on with a Sam Adams in hand, you've got the perfect fall night. The taste is smooth, nothing too heavy and if you love craft beer - this is one for the books.
Being a little bit of a beer snob, I was pleasantly surprised when I gave this seasonal brew a shot. I'm a huge fan of our local Octoberfest, but moving across the country forced me to try something new. This beer is packed with flavor and for a reasonable price!
This beer is one of my favorite seasonal beers. It is excellent when you can find it on tap (I have found that most places will start carrying it in September if they have a dedicated Sam Adams seasonal tap). The taste is delightful fall-ish with a smooth body.
Will never turn one of these down. (It's a drink one and enjoy type of beer. Not excessive) In general I am not a Sam Adams advocate but they put the right amount of everything for a perfect flavor for this.
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.
