Postmortem Brew Review
Clear copper color.
Pronounced nutty aroma with a bit of caramel scents present.
One-finger off-white head that leaves minimal lacing.
Nutty taste. Caramel malts lead the taste.
Medium amount of carbonation.
Light to medium
mouth feel and body but slightly thin in the finish.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
A nice English style brown ale and it's organic to boot.  Many new micro breweries are popping up using naturally grown, unadulterated ingredients. This trend is very welcome, what with the outbreaks of contaminated crops we hear about, that make their way into our supermarkets. The Organic label ensures that pesticides and animal proteins (runoff) are kept from the products placed inside the bottles. After all, we want carbs, not protein in our beer, right?

Stone cold fact: In 2009, Peak assisted Maine farmers with the cultivation of commercial hops. This is something that hasn't been done in Maine since 1880.  Peak prides themselves on their commitment to organic brewing and partnering with organic farmers.

Again, a fine brown ale, using trusted ingredients.
