A- Beer pours an interesting copper, and a slight cherry color. Evident bubbles throughout the brew. A thick cap of chunky white head bubbles up and settles down slowly.

S- A spice filled lager yeast upfront. The malts are strong, and has a zesty pilsner type hop presence. Pretty meh though, nothing great.

T- The taste starts out as a baked bready crumb, and begins to transition into a brief hop bite. Theres a dry cracker crispness in the flavor, and all the while a caramel malt background.

M- Smooth, medium bodied brew with crsip level carbonation. Theres a film like texture in the finish, not in a gross kinda way but adds another dimension to the beer that makes it more than just a light drinking lager.

O- Dead guy ale is a crisp refreshing brew that is easy to drink. Not the best from Rogue's by any means but a nice staple for them.

Hazy yellow-amber with plenty of rising bubbles. 2cm head with decent lacing and staying power. Smell is warm bready malts with some floral hops. Very average. Taste is similar- Sweet biscuit malt that starts dry but finishes wet and sugary. The bitterness of the hops hit you right away quickly fading into the malt with a lemon zest finish. Well balanced but maybe a little sweet. The mouthfeel is great: creamy and full feeling, yet well carbonated and crisp.

Interesting brew. Good taste and mouthfeel, though there are better Rogue beers out there.

Bottle to Founders tulip.

A - Medium orange with a golden glow around the edges and one finger of bubbly off-white head.

S - Bready/grainy malts, a touch of sweet caramel and some noticeable alcohol. A very light bitterness is evident with some floral notes.

T - A decent hop punch up front with floral notes balanced by some bready/grainy malts with a fairly prominent sweetness. The ABV is slightly noticeable.

M - Medium body with light to moderate carbonation.
