Postmortem Brew Review
Reddish amber color.
Aroma of malted wheat and malted barley.

Medium lasting head with good lacing.
Medium bodied flavor and mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Another amber ale to sample. Seems everyone has one these days. Grolsch makes theirs with malted wheat according to the side label. I have had their beer and enjoyed it, perhaps more for it's relative affordability than for taste.

Also interesting to note, I had been choosing
Grolsch beer over domestic brands of lager due to the afore mentioned negligible price difference. I thought, "Why not have a beer that is imported for only $1 more per 12 pack?" Then, here's the twist; they have a partnership with AB (Bud)! Isn't that interesting? I thought so. Why would you assist an import on the shelves for only a buck more than your flagship domestic, (or is Bud now considered an import with the acquisition by InBev?) I'm soooo confused.....

So back to the amber is average compared to other amber ales on the market, but refreshing none the less. Good ale at a decent price.
