3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dead Guy tasted like a cross between an amber and a bock, living up to the latter as it warmed up. Dark tan/amber in color, dominated by sweet malts, yet hoppier than most European bocks I've tasted. A nice beer.

Very good beer with lots of flavor and nice malty tastes. The packaging and name of the beer also gives it that unique and fun beer drinking experiance.

Hoppy and apple nose, but light. Dark orange color, medium fast diminishing head. No carbonation at all. Hoppy and medium bitter. Ok but not the hit.

Smells almost like nothing, maybe a little malty. Look of amber with a bitter, malty taste. Nothing spectacular. Business as usual

A decent beer from one of my favorite breweries, but there is nothing really special here. A fruity maltiness recalls apples or plums with a modest hop finish. Relatively full body that has an orange color. Well balanced, but a quick taste profile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2003 Copper in color with a decent white frothy head. Light malt aroma with a hint of sweetness, caramel? Flavor is moderately bitter with some spicyness. Bitter finish

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely amber color, medium head that fell rapidly but did not subside entirely. Strong Pacific Northwest hop aroma. Great malt flavors with big, but balanced hop bitterness. Spicy finish. Lovely beer that will take you home quicker than you expected.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours dark orange. It is very odd and drinkable, but not too terribly enjoyable.

On tap. Ale? Bock? What is this stuff? More like an IPA with the hops. Little head, dark orange brown color. Smooth, sweet at first but a largely bitter aftertaste. Pretty good, not outstanding, I just have no idea how to classify this.

12 oz. Bottle, I only add that as in some ways I miss the old glow in the dark label (Do they still make them?) Hazy amber color with a smallish cream colored head. Light pine, citrus and malt infused aroma. I have never been a big fan of bock ales, they seem to be like an APA without the real hops for an APA or the crispness of a lager. Lightly fruity. Not saying I don't like this one, it just lacks any definition, any characters that make it stick out and say DRINK ME! Somewhat like a lot of browns and reds out there.
