A good friend from work bought a half barrel the other day and brought me a growler. I'm not a huge Dead Guy Fan, but, I was struck by the overall taste, texture, and aroma of this beer. First I liked the almost burnt orange color and creamy head. It has a slight citrus orange type flavor with a pleasant caramel tone, like those chocolate orange slices I love to eat at Christmas. A definite quick bitter hop finish. A nice Brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Cloudy pale orange, nice frothy head that leaves a curtain of lace.
Honey, orange, and caramel the predominant smells I'm getting.
Big caramel malt and honey note with a deep grainy bread note and grapefruit hop kick at the end. A slight warming aftertaste.
Medium carbonation, creamy and slick mouthfeel.
Nicely done although I think I like the original just as well (and the bottle is less expensive).
Serving type: bottle
