Postmortem Brew Review
Brown color, slight reddish tinge when held up to light.
Malty and nutty flavor, the way a brown ale ought to be.
Slim caramel color head with little lacing.
Light to medium mouth feel, good aftertaste of slight hops. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Newkies, as they have been referred to, have been invading the US shores for sometime now. They are getting a loyal following, introducing the masses to what a proper brown ale should be. And who says the Brit's drink everything at room temp? The front of the bottle label says "Drink Cool." It doesn't seem they're attempting to offer tips on style with that statement.

Here you'll find no overpowering hops, no extra fizzy pizazz, no 'smart' packaging. Just good old fashioned, honest to goodness brown ale in clear bottles. It doesn't hurt they have some flashy yellow labeling, but the clear bottle shows the ultra good, solid liquid craft inside.

Get off the lagers for a while and lose yourself in something unique, "...The one and only!"
