Postmortem Brew Review
Deep golden color, slightly translucent.
Grain smell with minimal hops present; some citrus.
Off white, head that dissipates quickly leaving scant cover.
Very little lacing noticed.
Higher than average amount of carbonation.
bodied; watery.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Somebody call a cop, 'cause I've just been robbed by a fireman!  This brew was a bit thin, even watery, (no pun intended.)  The neck label mentions that for every barrel Hook and Ladder sells, they will make a donation to a local burn foundation.  That is very noble of them.

I will not let the paucity of one bad experience color my thoughts.  So just to be sure, in the future I will try some of their other brews to make sure I didn't get 'burned' by this one bottle of beer.

Good cop, bad doughnut....Good fireman, so-so beer.
