Dark amber brown with a small bit of quickly receding head. Smell is very nice, with some buttery pine nut flavors overlapping malts and hops on the back. Taste is much the same, with similar components. Mouthfeel is light and sharp with good amounts of carbonation. Feels perfect on the back of the pallate. It is crisp and refreshing, but it has plenty of flavor hidden within it to make it quite a good beer for a warm summer evening.

dark hazy orange color with a light tan head...dissapates quickly to a top layer that laces well

smell is sweet and fruity...hints of apritcot and apples

taste is a little bitter start to a sweet bananna/apricot finish

lightly carbonated with a nice full mouthfeel

pretty easy beer to drink..wouldnt have a problem killing a 6pack..but its much more enjoyable to save it and have one a night for 6 days :-)

also..one of the cooler labels ive seen

had this awhile back and forgot to review it..its definitely a good, classic beer and worth a try if you havent yet...

No Bottle Date

A - Pours a hazy amber with a light tan head. Good amount of carbonation visible.

S - Smells sweet and malty. Hints of raosted malts and molasses and sugar.

T - The malts leads you down the journey, but the hops make their presence known right away. The malts then continue you on your way, with a nice sweet finish. There is a lot of biscuity malt in this one.

M - Medium body, with moderate to high carbonation. This beer goes down nice and smooth.

D - Absolutely. You could session with this beer. This is a delicious beer that is easy to find, and even easier to drink.

Dead Guy should be a staple in everyone's beer diet. It's got a full rich flavor, but at the same time it's light to medium bodied, and quite drinkble. To me, this tastes like everything Bass Ale aspires to be. The tastes are comparable, but Dead Guy gets it right. There is nothing too complex about this beer, and that's a good thing. It is a testament to the fact that your tastebuds don't always need to be assaulted with a billion different flavors to be an interesting beer. The beauty of Dead Guy is it's simplicity. It's also great with just about any food you can think of.

this is a good beer!

it is a hazy copper orange with a decent light tan head. i really like the appearance of this beer.

taste feels crisp. mildly sweet. slight alcohol aftertaste that i enjoy. the lingering taste makes you anticapate the next drink. maybe that is why it is so drinkable.

a good a beer. i would recommend it to anyone.

From Notes:

12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date.

A: Honey in color with a slight haze. A very thing white lace.

S: A small sweetness from malts and hops, and a fruity smell I just can not put my finger on.

T&M: Medium body with the right amount of carbonation. Malty sweetness that is balanced bye hop bitterness. A dry grainy finish, that reminds me of some multi-grain breads.

Notes: This is a well put together beer, and it is what I have come to expect from a Rogue product. But this style is not for me, but it is still a quality beer.
