It wouldn't take much to make a better beer than Samuel Adam's Oktoberfest. That stuff is awful and a real disappointment from the Boston Beer Company, whose products are usually very good. I also just bought a six-pack of their WinterFest and am wondering whether I'll be able to finish it. It has a real strong hop bite and is fairly awful. I've got a recipe for a Marzen that turned out pretty good.
