Drawing inspiration from imagery associated with the pioneers of America, the cornfields of Kentucky and the unusual town names of the Wild West, Dead Crow is a 5.5% bourbon-flavoured premium beer combining a light beer base with a rich bourbon spirit which gives it an aromatic bourbon aroma.

leaparsons (7991) - Leicester, Leicestershire, - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden with a large white head. Aromas are lager shandy with syrup, grain and lemon. Whisky barrel with honey and caramel. Flavours are very sweet honey, sugar and grain with lemon. Some light whisky. Getting a sugar rush headache. The sweetest beer I’ve ever had. Urghhh.

MarcoDL (2061) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Sweet ’beer’, with a artificial taste of chemicals. Like a weird lemonade. Perhaps this is what a dead crow tastes like.

Bamsen78 (2993) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle. Gusher. Pours clear golden with small, airy white head. Dusty aroma of cheap booze, inferior malt and yeast, with some notes of hops. Sweet flavour of cheap malt, rotten fruit, aspartame and yeast, with faint notes of hops. Sour and sweetish aftertaste. Completely out of balance and very bad.

tricksta_p (917) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Aroma of artificial sugary sweetener, candy-like caramel. Flavour is horrifying chemical sweetness. Probably the most offensively disgusting beer I’ve ever had.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2014
Orange colored substance with hardly a layer of foam. Strange aroma with a faint touch of hop. Sugar sweet chemical taste, which hangs on for way to long. 3 times nothing! Oranjekleurige substantie met bijna geen schuimkraag. Apart aroma waar in de verte wel een tint van hop in zit. Suikerzoete chemische smaak die te lang blijft hangen. 3 Keer niets!!

Bottle given as a gift. Pours dark gold colour, tastes incredibly sweet. More of a beer flavoured alcopop than an actual beer. Had this outside on a sunny day which was it's only real redemption.

Discusting to drink (although my wife likes it). However here is good news! It’s great in a casserole! Dead Crow Casserole! You can’t beat it!

wimpyjoe (3569) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle from Asda. Possibly the most vile beer I’ve had to date. Pale golden with a very thin head. Skunky aroma and an awful sweetened taste. A touch of the bourbon is evident but it adds nothing.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Aroma of strawberry chew, vomit and sherry poured on rotting garbage. Strawberry bubblegum flavour. Pours low gold with a slender skin of white. Toothrot sugary. No bourbon. Just "no" generally.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Slightly darker golden hue to the body with a pasty white head that has a slight bit of staying power. Aroma of caramel soda. Flavour is an awkward sugary mix of fusel fruitiness with a weird cherry finish. Weird film left on the tongue. Not good at all.

RichTheVillan (2510) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from B&M Bargains; clear light amber pour with a big foamy white head, honey aroma, taste is very sweet like a lager shandy with sugar dumped in, not at all pleasant.
