As a long time Sam Adams fan I was skeptical of them branching out this fat, but it did not disappoint. It has a red velvet taste to it with the same bitter Boston lager bite.

A surprising offering from Sam Adams; malty, yet refreshing in the summer heat, with a much toned-down hop presence compared to their standard lager.

Reddish copper color with not much head. Smells like sweet Carmel and slightly toasted malts. Taste very similar to the smell but has a fruitiness to it possibly some type of Apple.medium light body with medium carbs. Overall it's just an ok beer
