Beer Review #44 - Rogue Dead Guy Ale

Hi Guys,

I know its been a while but here it is. Who would have thought a 7 month old would suck all the energy out of you. Rather then drink a beer and write I much prefer to drink a beer and relax. But don't worry I know that if I am truly going to be the famous beer writer that I know will happen (yeah right) then I have to post. Like I stated in my last post I hope to do one review a week and go from there. On to the Rogue Dead Guy review.

Appearance - The Dead Guy pours a nice copper color with a great head. The head leaves a nice lacing on the side of the glass.

Aroma - The Dead Guy has a good hint of pine and maybe a hint of citrus from the hops. This is well balanced with hints of caramel from the malt.

Taste - All the flavors in the aroma come through in the taste of the Dead Guy but I feel the malt has a slight lead in the taste.

Mouthfeel - The Dead Guy has a nice light to medium mouthfeel. The carbonation caries everything throughout the mouth.

Drinkability - This is what I call a good all year beer. It has enough body for the cool months but is light enough for the summer.

Welcome back all see you next time.

Matt C.
