Several of my friends swear by this stuff, so I begged one off my buddy Jason and the result is this review.
Dead Guy Ale is a honey colored brew that pours a fine looking 3/4s inch head. Settles quickly but leaves a nice amount of lacing. Smells of hops, yeast, and sweet nectary goodness. The sweet scent grows as the beer warms.
Taste is bitter, smooth, crisp, hops, more bitters, and alcohol. A slight fruitiness in the beer. Departs with a nice refreshing, full finish. Has a lot of immediate "bite". Yeast in the taste, too. Left me with the impression of eating a fresh loaf of bread. Despite that, it's not very filling.
Dead Guy is a very good beer. What Rogue beer isn't, right? A little more expensive than I'd like, (around $8 for a six pack) but that's Rogue for you. This wasn't a "knock my socks off" beer, but it's a very solid brew and one you should try if you haven't.

11/09/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Far better on tap than from bottle. Bordering on the crisp side. Hops are well under control and there is a slight apricot in the sweetness. In a word, a classy glass...Oops, that was two words, but you get my drift.
Serving type: on-tap
