Postmortem Brew Review

Slight strings of lacing on glass.

Medium grain and malt taste up front with a bit of yeast at end.
Light mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
"Beer From Around Here" is printed on the label.  By around here, they mean the southeastern, no, make that The South.  Capital T - Capital S - period.  It's brewed in Atlanta and the label declares their proud southern heritage by listing "grits", "hound dogs" and "Mama" in the same sentence.  So basically, if you 'aint from Georgia, or a state that touches one of their borders, you can pretty much forget about having access to this brew.

As far as the beer is concerned, it was refreshing and light bodied.  Perfect for hot days when you want something extra special.  By 'extra special', I mean, something that doesn't come in an eighteen or twenty-four pack.  This beer 'aint going to be chillin' in the Coleman in back of the pickup, unless 'yall got a special date.

Very enjoyable to drink. Be proud of your beer.  Be proud of your heritage. They are, and they make no 'bones' about it!
