Orange amber...

Smells like watermelon candy and molasses...with a twist of orange...in fact it tastes sorta like that too...

The texture of the beer is nice when cold but it gets too hot as it warms. There is too much sugars here for me. Or something like that.

I tried to enjoy this beer but I really cain't. I paid $13 for a sixxer. That is too much for me. Even if it is free range coastal water.

This beer trys to hard to be something. And it doesn't even know what it's trying to do. This beer is like a college dropout trying to make everybody thank they is smart.

Smells wonderful and is looks gorgeous...just all mixed up inside...maybe that's why the guy died...I dunno...

I had this in 2002 and said I would never buy it again but since I have had some really really good Rogue beers lately I thought I would see if somehow my tastes had matured. Nope the flavor is still dead.

I'll pass next time.

I was surprised that Rogue Brewing Company's Dead Guy ALE was supposed to be a maibock. It doesn't taste like a Maibock to me. I'm sure it's great for people who enjoy ales, but I'm just not one. I prefer the subtle sweetness of Spaten, Sam Adams or even Gordon Biersch bocks.
