Postmortem Brew Review
Weak hop aroma.
Slight sour fruit flavor and taste.
Long lasting head.
Cloudy from pour to finish, similar to wheat ales.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Very cloudy throughout, but not sure if it was intended. Palatable, but something seemed awry in taste. Maybe the 7/11/07 expiration date had something to do with it? I'll have to try again, sometime.


  1. This beer is one of my favorities when i'm looking for something hoppy...mornings are best spent outside however

  2. D, I will have to give this a try again. Looking at my notes, it appears that this bottle must have reached max shelf life, or was handled improperly before it was purchased.

    I will look for another and review again. Thanks for the post!
