Postmortem Brew Review
Copper color.
Sweet, malty and slight grain smell.
Two finger crisp white head that leaves a very nice amount of lacing.
Fresh tasting with just a nudge of hops over malt, as is proper in Pale Ales.
Modest amount of carbonation.
Light bodied; refreshing.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
The flagship beer from this brewery since 1986.  That seems to be the year the general explosion in micro breweries happened.  And this Extra Pale Ale will not let you down.  It has just the right amount of gentle rolling hops to balance with the malts, to make an exceptional easy drinker.

I found this to be a pleasant start to my days chores.  It works with you, not against you. Done nicely in the style of an English Pale Ale.
