    [Best served in a Lager Glass]

    Poured amber almost orange in color with a small off white head that diminished quickley. The aroma was that of toasted caramel malts and citrus with a nice hoppy scent. Tasted of citus, lemon I think with a full flavor of hops. Mouthfeel was creamy an medium bodied with a nice hoppy aftertaste that lasted qiute a while. Overall a really tasty ale.

    The malt character of this beer just overwhelms the palate. The beer has a bitter sour finish. I would say that I drank a bad bottle but this was not my first attempt at drinking dead guy.

    All around great beer. A great blend of flavor, color, quality and value. For about $17 you can get a growler of this at the store.

    Drinkable any time, but complex enough for the most savvy aficionado. Incredible malt range, but very surprising hoppy complexity. It will satisfy beer drinkers of any level, and is the perfect beer to get your Bud friends hooked on craft brews.

    Definite go to for ale fans, this is a bit more complex than I was expecting. Fruity and slight butterscotch notes during drinking. Good stuff.
