Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Like the other Sam Adams (Black Lager) cadaver, this beer is part of the 'Brewmaster's Collection'. The black lager did not have an overly hoppy finish and therefore rated slightly higher than this red. I am fond of 'red' beers and ales. But that said, I'm beginning to see why Samuel Adams beers have garnered such a great reputation for brewing.
