Well..I Really did not want to like this Beer,Basically Because so many of my Friends have been Raving about it, to the point I was sick of hearing how Awesome it is,and though I love my Friends Dearly,they can be Huge "Beer Snobs" who are always slagging my Beloved Heineken & Yeingling [Porter]~So I very much wanted to tell my buddies that "Rouge Dead Guy Ale" is just another overpriced,over Hyped Brew,sold to them by slick Marketing aimed @ Beer snobs just like them,who feel you must pay @ least 15 bucks a 6er for decent brew,[which I feel is total bullsh*&] there are tons of gr8 brews out there for around 7~10 bucks a 6er.
Anyway,Last night I made my usual Beer run after work,and Decided to Finally check out some Dead Guy Ale,[15 bucks a 6er] upon getting home,I Popped one right away and poured it in a standard Pint glass,and right away was taken by the beautiful,slightly amber,almost copper color,OK..looks very nice,Next I gave it the ole sniffer test,smelled malty and quite hoppy,which led to my mouth watering like a Lion looking at a Zebra,it had a decent Head,but nothing to write home about..but I have to say, as soon as I Tasted it,the less then stellar head meant nothing at all!quite simply this is one Top Notch Brew,with hints of Carmel & maybe a little toffee also,very malty & hoppy [just like it smelled] So in closing,my Beer Snob Friends were right on the money [this time..hehe] "Rouge Dead Guy Ale" is a Wonderful Brew,and will always have a place in my Beer Fridge;)
