Postmortem Brew Review
Golden to amber and clear colored.
Light wheat grain notes in the aroma with a twinge of hops.
Two-finger white frothy head. Slowly dissipates leaving stretchy strings of lace.
Satisfying hops flavor and delicious light wheat taste.
Moderate amount of carbonation.
Light and refreshing
mouth feel. Super easy to session.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Big Sky - in a can. So many brewers are getting down to canning. A thing of beauty when it comes to chilling, transporting and preserving great beer. And, by no means is this some kind of tuna fish in a can. It's Montana Trout Slayer, a lovely golden yellow Pale Wheat Ale that is simply delicious to session. Put it in your backpack, or cooler to the beach. Hey, you can take it down to the river and keep it with your creel in the chilly river water. Easy to chill down and cool off with, lightweight to carry. And at 4.7% ABV, it let's you focus on reeling in the big one.

"A Bigger Tale With Every Ale" is printed on the side of the can, indicating that your fish stories about the-one-that-got-away will increase with your beverage consumption. Everything you need to know about what's inside, and outside, is on the can. Yep, it's all there, neatly on the can. Including the warning from the "Sturgeon General". Well, I am taking some liberties with that schloky pun.

You don't like my puns? Cry me a river.
