Postmortem Brew Review
Ruby red and dark brown color.
Balance of malt and hops aroma and taste.

Balanced carbonation.
Excellent clinging lace down the side of the glass.
Medium bodied mouth feel; fruitiness in finish.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This is the second of the two sixer's we sampled from our trip to the mega-cooler in Ft. Collins. Oh, how I dread returning to the Florida crypt where we cannot get this earthly nectar...I must implore my grocers to obtain shipments, somehow. Returning to the 90 Shilling...

What a wonderful balance of roasted malt and hops. Not only in the aroma, but in the taste. Just simply delicious. A great beer to have with a meal or maybe even a couple alone. Such flavor and body. Yum. Yes, I said yum! That is a fine superlative and succinctly defines this ale. Deal with it!

Now I am sad again, until we return to the Rockies in the fall whenst' more of this delectable ale can be had.
