Grim Reaper's Eulogy
A subtle and enjoyable pale ale if ever there was one. This can easily become a 'go-to' beer for any occasion.   It makes a great crossover beer when introducing folks into the world of craft styled beer and yet, it is sophisticated enough of an English style pale ale that allows it to stand on its own. While it's and American style Pale Ale, it has Yakima hops and American two-row malts, they reserved some British specialty malts for the finish.

It's clean taste and malt/hops mix is a hit with me. You should also know that Acme Pale Ale is a multi-award winning brew, across several years. That means it's consistently well made. Relax from your daily grind with one of these easy to drink pale ales.
