Grim Reaper's Eulogy
I should have reviewed this in the spring with my "Brews from Yesterbeer" series. Sadly I must report...
Look what they've done to my song, Ma!

This used to be " THE " import back-in-the-day. So much so, Löwenbräu
allowed it to be brewed in America under strict license agreements. They just couldn't keep up with the demand from the US in the Motherland. We'll of course we all know now, once it was over produced on US soil, we Americans naturally ruined it. Else, we grew tired of its 'non-import' status. So in the end, Löwenbräu pulled the plug and returned it to Germany once more.

Apparently it wasn't all the fuss we made it out to be. My nostalgia for it went right out of the casket after just one. How sad. At least it's once again, getting Reinheitsgebot
German purity law respect. Let's hope for a speedy recovery.
