Dead Guy poured a clear, copper color with a finger width, off white head. The aroma is malty, with some light hops. The body is smooth and malty with a little sweetness followed by a nice blast of clean hops. The finish leaves a lingering dryness.
Overall, this is a classic beer, one of my all-time favorites. The Maibock style is a wonderful beer when done right and Rogue has nailed it with Dead Guy. Well balanced, bold yet easy drinking and packing plenty of flavor, Dead Guy can be enjoyed by itself or paired with virtually any course of food.
