Am I going to regret drinking this Sam Adams black lager at room temperature?

I *could* put it in the fridge but wouldn’t that just make it more skunked and not worth drinking at all?

Drink it up my good friend! But stay away from pretty girls. There’s nothing worse than skunky Sam Adams Black Lager at room temperature FARTS!

it’s a lager. they’re designed to be refriged. ales and stouts are meant to be drunk warm because of the bouquet.

May not be as bad as you think, do you know what room temp. is? Not 68 degrees, but 50-55, also known as cellar temperature. Make it a little better?

ah, room temperature is in fact the temperature of the room you’re in, it’s not a buzz word or industry term! As for cellar temperature sure 50-55. Also, just because it is a lager doesnt not mean it is best drank cold, just like all ales are not best at cellar or warmer temperatures. For instance drinking a malty/rich double bock (a lager) ice cold would hide many of it’s flavors and sweetness. Vice Versa, drinking an IPA (india pale ALE) or a wheat beer/weizen (again ales) warm would be a bit funky…

As for the that particular sam adams, drinking it a room temp. is fine, it will taste more malty; it would be better at “cellar” temp. or out of the fridge but you’ve hardly ruined it. Also sticking it back in the fridge would in no way ruin it either.

Just man up and drink it. If it doesn’t kill you it makes you stronger.
Good times!!!
