Pours creamy large head, deep ruby, nice tonation. Aroma of vanilla , mint , asian spices and of plenty hops . As it warms get richer more mature. Soft ale, rather light. mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Thanks for handling the order Jeremy. Dark brownish red in colour. Pronounced hop nose and flavour. This is balanced by delicous malt flavours of caramel. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2004
Bottle. cherrywood in colour with a fluffy off-white head. Lots of centennial hops in the aroma with nice malty undertones. Flavour is malty and fairly well balanced. Another well-constructed beer from Rogue. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2004
Dark mahogany colour, slightly hazy, with a small tan head. Great aroma - fruity, nutty, spicey & hoppy. Smooth, creamy body. Excellent balance in the flavour - caramel malts, hints of cocoa and cherry, woody hops in the finish. I liked this a lot. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Listed as "Red Guy Ale," With a handwritten "red" over the word Dead in Dead Guy. Pours a clearish ruby with a nice thin offwhite head. Nose is really cool, fruit snack nose, definite C-hops and cherries. The taste was incredibly refreshing and drinkable. Cherry, raspberry, chocolate covered are all characteristics that I’d give this, as well as dusty malts. A most excellent beer, and a good sessioner, I reckon.Very very nice red ale.

2004 draught @ Rebones (dry hopped). Deep cherry meets mahogany red, with some lighter orange tinges on the side. Creamy toasted-white head. Aroma of creamy nuttiness (whatever that is), light roast, lots of spicy hops and light citrus. Flavor is excellently balanced, big and wet, with a lively yeast presence and soft carbonation. The hops mingle throughout and the crystal malt really shines in this one. I love chinook hops, (I like it spicy) and the lack of pale malt really makes this one soft, creamy and smooth. Citrus finish, light grains, decent amount of drying at the end. Light earthiness, not quite smokey or roasted, but just a bit dry and dirty (woodiness perhaps). Yum, I’m surprised this isnt rated higher. beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2004
Roby color with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavor of floral hops, caramel and malt. Fukk body, soft carbonation, slightly oily texture. Not bad but the hops is mild, wich is surprising for a Rogue beer. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2004
on tap at rogue in newport. i guess this must be pretty popular as the guys in the adjacent packaging section were wheeling off many many crates of this. copper colour, reasonable grapefruit and nutella aroma, pretty smooth and drinkable, decent bitterness for a red Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Red amber color with a nice tan head. Nice hoppy aroma. Carmel and toastyness with the n.w. hops shining through then fading back a bit to a toffee bitter finish. Nice enough to buy a case. eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Maltiness dominates this brown-copper concoction from Rogue Ales. A sturdy, fizzy head. A terrific Red Ale. Slight taste of Mexican Mole sauce; roasted cashews; hint of spiciness. So nicely balanced-- a trait common to most of Rogue’s creations. Strong, velvety palate with a suprisingly smooth, unabrasive and maple-y finish.
