The Rogue Dead Guy Ale is a German-style Maibock and this was my first experience with the beer, but definitely not my last. As a Maibock this beer is all Malts with just enough hops to keep it balanced. My first recommendation is to let this one warm up before you begin to drink it. Served Ice cold the Dead Guy Ale can taste like a cheap gas station beer, but once it warms all of the deep malty character come out. It pours a honey color with an off-white head and sweet caramel aroma. The taste is all malts, with big sweet malt and caramel notes and a nice depth that lingers on the palate. This is a definitely a complex beer for a Maibock and a great counterpoint to all the IPAs I have been drinking lately. It has deceptively high alcohol content for the very smooth and easy drinking beer. The Dead Guy Ale was a nicely balanced and outstanding beer.
