Rogue makes some good beer.. and their dead guy ale is no exception. I have been drinking this since the fall when I was introduced to it at a beer tasting party and it has not let me down since.

Dead guy pours with a lovely looking cloudy golden brown color and has an offwhite head that sticks around. There's some lacing down the sides of the glass as you drink (rather quickly). On the nose you'll find biscuit malts, flowers and honey.. it's pleasant but you might not know it was there unless you were looking for it. The taste however, is a standout. Rich caramel sweetness up front with just the right mouthfeel greets you at every sip. And the finish is dead on - a well balanced hop bite at the end clears away the sweetness and brings you back for more.

Drinkability ranks high.. you could easily session this.

Pleasantly surprised!
A-Nice, clear golden amber
S-Bitter sour notes, a little banana, er, well not mine, but the aroma!
M-Weak subtle carbonation which is a nice complement to the style of beer
T-Wonderful tartness and a sweet counterbalance that works well
O-I really enjoyed this beer, while having very little expectation, a nice switch from my usual IPA addiction.
