    Blind tastings are always fun. It’s funny how the label on a beer can affect the flavor, but it’s a very real phenomenon. I’m a little shocked that Sam Adams did so well, but their Oktoberfest is one of their better beers. Can’t wait to see what happens in round 2.

      @jim – it was really cool. Part two was really fun. little less traditional oktoberfest, including two ales! I was shocked with Paulaner, but at the same time having two American beers (Sam’s and Flying Dog) inline with Hacker-Pschorr was pretty cool. I just started editing Round 2; trying for Thursday, but it may be next Monday.

  2. I haven’t had all of those but Spaten and Sam Adams Oktoberfests are probably my favorites.

  3. Very cool! I’m finding that I like some of the domestic Oktoberfests better than the German ones! This year I’ve had the Flying Fish Oktoberfish (an ale) and Left Hand’s Oktoberfest, both were better than the Germans I thought! Looking forward to round 2 as well!
