look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Pours a Medium amber, with a finger and a half worth of head. The smell is quite hoppy if you ask me, With light toasted malt and bread. The taste virtually follows the smell. Tastes hoppy, Some light malt, Some wet bread and slightly strong skunk. Weird for the type, Eh?, It all piled together nicely thought. The mouthfeel somewhat follows, Though it allows more of the skunk to come through. Overall, A VERY easy to drink beer. Seriously, I would buy this for ANY occasion. Though at $2.50 a bottle, The prices are a bit too high for what you get. Drop your prices, And you'll consistently have my ( and I'm sure thousands of others ) business

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.
