Postmortem Brew Review
Toffee brown color with some ruby highlights when held up to light.
Deep bready aroma
with nutty notes. Roasted malt background.
Nicely foaming two finger tan head with decent lacing on glass.
Creamy sweet malt taste up front. Some nuttiness and a bit of hops.
Nice amount of carbonation.
Medium bodied mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
New brew for me straight outta the west. I returned from Colorado in November with a mix 12 pack of Ska and this is the first one opened for review.  They are a funky fine brewery; just take a tour of their website.  Try not to bust into a ska dance snit while the music blares over your PC speakers! Very cool attitude from this bunch.

The Buster Nut Brown is a great English style brown ale done pretty straight up.  It's easy to sit around all day with a bunch of these. Enjoy the music, enjoy the commentary and by all means, enjoy some Buster Nut!

Gotta get out to Durango one day and meet these cats!
