Postmortem Brew Review
Yellow color with a slight orange tinge.
Sweet pleasant smell but nondescript. Some citrus.
Bubbly, thin white head that leaves spotty lacing.
Minimal malt and hops character show through in the taste.
Adequate level of carbonation.
Light bodied and easy to drink. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
After completing my sampling notes, I read elsewhere that others have pretty much passed on this one.  But thier reviews were mostly from a bottle.  I found that this was pleasant enough on tap and while not exactly memorable, it wasn't that bad.  It is an easy session drinker as it should be, for a summer style ale.

You can post your comments if you've had it in the bottle or on tap. Let's hear your thoughts.
