3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 This has been one of my favorite ales over the past few years, although I am not as big a fan now as I was about two or three years ago. Although considered a Maibock, it is somewhat darker and maltier than most Maibocks. It pours a slightly cloudy amber with a white head that dissapates quickly. Strong aroma of sweet malt. Very well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink. Dead Guy is a fine all-around ale that I enjoy throughout the year. I would also like to note that I experienced amazing customer service from the staff at Rogue Ales.

Bottle poured into a tall tulip. Surprising, almost unique, flavors evident on the first sip. Color of a dark honey, aroma of sweet malt and bread. Very smooth, rounded nut-like flavor. Malty, floral hops, sweetness, creamy texture, quite complex, easy to drink, tastes and looks more like an amber ale than anything else, I would certainly drink this one again.

-pours a hazy amber-red with a medium to big,foamy,offwhite head
-medium carbonation visible
-Follows the nose with a toasty finish
-low to medium bitterniss
-light to medium,creamy body
This is not a Maibock,hell it’s not even a Lager.
Aside from that,a great Amber Ale though

From notes: sweet, malty, lots of body, a bit more balance with the alcohol would be nice.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The taste isn’t too bitter and no after taste which pretty good for me. Aroma itself isn’t hoppy.

Bottle, bubbly fluffy head, hazy deep orange color, biscuity fruity aroma, biscuity jammy flavor with some honey in the back, herbal bitterness, a bit too sweet. Decent.

Introduced to this at a local pub that had it on draft. Now one of my top picks, i just wished that in the northeast it wasn’t considered such a premium brand at typically close to $14 a 6 pack. Highly recommend visiting one of their bars in Portland, OR - enjoyed a flight and still come back to this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle 1/12/16 (Old Notes)-Pours copper with a decent head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and slight dark fruit. Taste of the same with a bit of grass and biscuit. This medium bodied brew is well done.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
35.5cl Pours clear orange, with thin head, that goes immediately. Fain aroma of caramel and some malts. Slightly sweet, medium bitter, with some clear caramel and candy sugars. Reminds a bit of faro with extra ABV. Medium bodied, smooth with some sharp alcohol bites. Not fizzy in the glass, but livens up in the mouth. A pleasant drink overall.
