Rogue Brewing Dead Guy Ale

A- Great head! 1 inch thick, thick lacing. Pretty amber brown, not crystal clear, but not murky either. Could be due to temp.

S- Malty, caramel, Slightly sweet. As it should smell.

T- Nice. Good, well balanced maibock. Hoppy, brown sugar. Great carbonation with a touch of bitterness. Not overly hopped for an ale, which is nice. Has just a hint of pine. Just good beer.

The beers comes in an light orange amber color.

The aroma has just lots of light brown sugar from the malt. A bit of earthy and spicy hops.

The flavor follows with mostly bready malts, with a good amount of gentle sweetness. Then there's some apple, white raisin, clove spice, yeast. There's a good amount of fruity esters in the middle.

The finish is very crisp and smooth, and has a good amount of drying and bittering. Lots of carbonation.

This actually was a very good beer for the style. Not very lager-y, but it imitates the style very well with its breadiness, yet still with that ale light body. A really enjoyable beer for those not into bitterness or the grassy hops of other German style lagers. This balances that well being an ale.
