Rogue Dead Guy Ale…in a bottle

Appearance-amber copper color with a decent head of about two fingers, the head rises and falls settles with a large crackling bubbly of lace.

Smell-pungent with a very notable mix of spiced hop and breaded sweet malt, the two smells mix well and the aroma is pleasant.

Taste/Mouthfeel-medium mouthfeel, a hint of hops upfront but the sweetness of the sugar and breaded malt dominates upfront, mix of toffee and candied sugar notes. As it progresses the hops come back into play, the finish is smooth but retains a lot of flavor, last notes were sugar and hops on the tongue. More sips bring up some slight fruit notes and alcohol but the dominant characteristics remain. Pretty tasty.

Overall-nice beer, deserving of its reputation. Worth a try, hopefully you won’t get gouged like I did in trying to procure it. Recommended.

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.
