4.09/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle marked 266A14 at 45 degrees into a standard pint glass
Aroma of lemon and salt
Head average (4 cm), white, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing to 2-3 mm layer
Lacing spotty – small islands of small to medium bubbles
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor lemony and somewhat salty, light and refreshing
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

A very refreshing brew, light and lemony with a hint of salt. Well worth buying for summer yardwork.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I had very low expectations for this beer. Old Bay is a fairly potent spice in large quantities. I have often washed the excess off blue crabs from a take-out place because they had a fiery dose of Old Bay on them. Dead Rise could have easily been a hot, gimmicky beer but it isn't. The spicing was just right, turning a fairly bland ale into something pretty good.

Pours a clear gold color with a medium size white head. Head retention is fairly good and there are rings of lacing on the glass.

Aroma and taste are good also. The aroma is quite floral....The celery salt element of Old Bay is much more prominent than the spicy part. I also thought I detected a good amount of rosemary in the aroma.

The spiciness carries over to the taste too. Te basis for the beer is a run of the mill ale. The spices make it much more interesting.

Mouthfeel features the spiciness on the tongue in an otherwise fairly light beer. I had this with snow crab legs and it was a perfect accompanyment. A good beer with sea food.
