Postmortem Brew Review
The color was golden brown, more gold than brown.
Very pungent smell and was slightly bitter to the back of the tongue.
Rich foamy white/yellowish head.
Medium mouth feel...heavy for a pale ale of note. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
And now, for something completely different! We have a new feature in this posting...a "ghost writer." When I get around to some of this ale, I'll add my two cents. The following comments do not represent my personal views, so tough noogies if you don't like them:

Ghost Writer's Eulogy
I am not a huge fan of ales to begin with. I didn't hate the beer like
I dislike Samuel Adams ales, but I wouldn't drink it often to enjoy. The appealing label may be the only reason I would ever choke down the taste again.

The beer is very much like the movie itself, low budget and corny, but distinguished and classic all at the same time.
The ale makes you happy when you least expect it, just like the movie. It starts off with a good entry taste and leaves you with a bitter after taste like most ales I've drunk in the past. A good experience to try, but I wouldn't start a crusade to get one.
