Grim Reaper's Eulogy
The history of this beer goes back to 1260 AD. That means, they know how to make beer, old school. Just a simple, easy, breezy wheat indulgence.  It's like drinking a loaf of bread in a glass!

This really hit the spot this evening.  I had worked up a thirst trying to select a draught that hadn't recently had the keg blown.  After five shutouts, I just picked it at random and viola'.  Lady luck was in the house.

It's smooth and almost creamy texture goes down easily on a hot summer night like tonight!
