Yeah Fall is already the best time of year, and when you add all the oktoberfest seasonals it's just the ****.
I thought regular Sam Adams lager was pretty nasty. But I don't think I'm a fan of lagers. Miller Lite is a decent quantity-over-quality piss beer.
first time i tried sam adams, i couldn't stand it, too hoppy. i thought guiness was pretty nasty too. over the years though, my palate changed, heck, when i drank my first beer (bud ice or bud light or something like that) i thought that was nasty too, think over the years i just developed a taste for a flavorful beer rather than the watered down types.
now i'm counting down the days until sam adams' octoberfest is on the shelves (2 more weeks!)
i'm guessing maybe the heiniken in america is different than in other parts of the world maybe? i do know that happens sometimes, guiness being the obvious one (tastes much different in ireland according to family that went over there).
