Sam Adams Black Lager

Just saw this today at the grocery store, figured it'd be worth a shot. It's not bad, certainly, but it's also not Kostritzer. Has kind of an odd tang to it.

Anyone else tried it?

  1. I like it. It is definitely not as good as whatever one's fave Schwartzbier happens to be (mine are Monchshoff and Herold), but it is affordable and widely available. As with most other beers, it is better when at its freshest.

    1. Sam's Black is my preferred beer. But help me please, it's apparently widely available, however I have enquired in every single store since I moved to California 3 months back. I am yet to spot one. Can you tell me where I can pick it?
