This use to be a rich, sweet, malty brew, but the six I bought today seems
bland and more like a regular lager than an Octoberfest. Anyone else notice
this?

I purchased a six last year and thought it wasn't as good as it once
was.

I tried it last year and found it bland.

Re: Sam Adams Octoberfest
Agreed - unimpressed this year.

Re: Sam Adams Octoberfest
Yeah, felt the same way. Picked up a twelve pack last week and was pretty
disappointed.

OTOH, I had a Hacker-Shoor <sp?> fest at dinner last night and was blown
away. Maybe the best Oktoberfest I've ever had.

Regards,
Jon

It's always been their worst beer.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, that didn't help. Their worst was the Cherry Wheat.

Yeah, I tried that once and thought it was atrocious.

Re: Sam Adams Octoberfest
I agree and I recommend trying Pumpkin Ale. I know they don't have it every
where, but if you have a chance to pick some of it up I would highly recommend
it. It is only around in October from where I'm from in NJ and is worth
getting.

There are a lot of pumpkin ales.  I've tried Dogfish Head's example
recently, and it was alright (it seemed to be flavored with nutmeg and
not pumpkin, though).

If your from Jersey you should try the Flying Fish Octoberfish, It is
awsome!
