Postmortem Brew Review

Frothy off white head with good lace.
Malt taste and hops finish with more malt in the balance.
Medium carbonation.
Medium body. Clean finish.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
A real find at the local watering hole.  What can I say, mortals? Here is a brew that has heretofore been unseen in these parts of the southeast. I tried this one first and then his big brother, the IPA. It was truly a nice amber colored English Pale Ale. Quite tasty indeed!

A great lead in to the IPA and it also helped that it quenched my thirst. Sail out of the store with some of these any time at all.
