Black Market Aftermath Pale Ale

2014 Black Market Brewing Co’s Aftermath Pale Ale has big dreams. The can looks like something that came out of the marketing department at the now defunct Jolt Cola after they watched Ghostbusters 25-30 times. The can claims, “When the world as we know it is on the brink, human comforts will be few, and survivors will scramble to prepare for the AFTERMATH. You won’t have any time to waste on any ordinary beer…Get your hands on this beer now before it’s too late.”


AHHH, Quick to the store….to buy a different beer. Sorry Black Market, in the event of the apocalypse your beer isn’t the first I’m reaching for. If i’m looking for a can that looks like a soda so I can sneak it onto the beach however, you’re my beer for sure.
And drinking one on the roof of a hotel overlooking Venice Beach is a sure way to enjoy it more but when it comes down to just the beer it is somewhat forgettable. Nothing stands out and to add a bit of pretension to this blog it tastes a bit pedestrian. Husky aftertaste is a bad thing and that’s all I really have to say about it. No flavors stand out except that aftertaste. It is light enough to drink real quick to avoid a lasting distaste so that’s good. 2 Chubs.
*Fyi: Their website is down as of 1/27/2014 with a message saying they are building a new one.
