4.15/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

poured from a bomber into a 12oz McDonalds Coca Cola glass (classy I know)

A: One finger of off white head receded quickly into a thin ring around the edge. Leaves almost no lacing.

S: The nose is light and slightly citrusy. A touch of malt comes out after a swirl. Not a lot here but what it does provide smells very appealing.

Taste: Similar to nose but better. Light citrus up front followed by a hit of hops and then a good malty character. The hop bitterness lasts a long time, this beer lingers for almost a minute on your palate before fading. And a warming at the end that hits you in the throat and gut rather than the mouth so you don't have that solventy ethanol taste. Really good beer.

M: This is where Dead Guy shines brightest. Drinking it cold so it hits the mouth and feels almost thin but as soon as it passes onto the middle of the tongue you feel it. Kinda chewy and really smooth. Goes down great.

O: Wonderful beer, but I should have known that. All my friends who have similar taste to me love it and all the ones with polar opposite taste hate it. Drinks really well, and is the best lager I have had, normally not a fan of lagers. Thick, smooth, a little sweet, a little bitter, and has a long lasting flavor. Wicked good.
