3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong sweet honey/malt aroma as the beer is poured in the glass, with what seems to be a bit of fruitiness from the hops. Clear copper brown, white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweet taste, get the honey/malt again as expected from the nose, almost no hop bitterness but a bit of hop flavor. Medium bodied. A bit of alcohol showing itself. OK beer.

Piękna miedziano bursztynowa barwa, niezła piana.
Aromat zdecydowanie słodowy z nutami owocowymi, skórką świeżo wypieczonego chleba i rodzynkami. W tle alkohol i karmel. Bardzo przyjemny.
W smaku zdecydowanie słodowe, ze średnim wysyceniem, mocno owocowymi nutami, i delikatnym goryczkowym finiszem. Bardzo udane piwo.

"dead guy is a somewhat unique beer, and worth a try, but it’s a little harsh for my tastes. i like strong beers, but this has no subtlety whatsoever in the flavors. They’re not bad, just too in your face."

Possibly the second "craft" beer I ever had. Wow, that seems like a long time ago. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Honey, brown sugar, flowers and citrus.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Couleur ambré avec un col assez résistant. Nez de caramel et des notes terreuses. En bouche c’est assez simple, caramel, notes terreuses, un peu de bois. Rien d’extraordinaire.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark orange color with medium head. Intensely sweet malts, a bit of yeast. Mostly tastes like the sweetness of long-chewed bread. A bit of hops in the finish as well. Very sweet lingering aftertaste. A well-made sweet bock.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE TASTED: October 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: O’s clinch, while the Browns complete the largest road comeback in history... APPEARANCE: slow, steady bubbles are mired within an opaquely beautiful orange brown body; creamy, substantial off-white head; lacing creates white fencing... AROMA: strong citric cleansing power--peach, tangerine, and orange--weds with soft pine to produce a sweet, rewarding allure... PALATE: smooth, active and bubbling to the tongue; simmering and balanced, if not a little difficult to place--could be the ale/bock moniker coming to fruition; still, highly drinkable for a beer nearly 7% ABV.....TASTE: intense melon, ear-tingling hops, and a solid malt base at the throat creates a full, demanding taste; nothing Dead here! ... OVERALL:this hybrid beguiled me at first--seeking the ale, malt made me rethink everything--the style, the glass, the night...then, seeking the malt, the crunch of West Coast hops puts me square back in a pint glass... this beer makes me ask too many questions and, frankly, I do not mind--complex and rewarding....

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours a beautiful clear dark orange to copper-amber color forming a medium thin bubbled light yellow head. Good retention. Forms lots of lacings in the glass
S: Sweet and grainy. A bit fruity. Strong notes of toffee and caramel. Smells like a Lager more than an Ale. Bready and biscuity yeasts. Quite biscuity. Light notes of dark fruits. Flowery and citrus hops profile
T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel and crystal malts. Bready and very biscuity. Notes of brown sugar. Moderate but very balanced and pleasant bitterness in the end. Citrus hops profile in the mouth. More Lager than Ale, in the mouth too.
M: Smooth medium, creamy and a little bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Sweet, bready, biscuity and slightly bitter end
O: Great drinkability. Very easydrinking like a good Bock beer should be. An American classic (in a German body :))
