Bonus Pint Night 10/31/06 Rogue Dead Guy Ale

Description from www.rogue.com:
Dead Guy Ale
Gratefully dedicated to the Rogue in each of us. In the early 1990s Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with Maierbock as the elixir. Strangely, the association with the Grateful Dead is pure coincidence.

Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogue's proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast. It is deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Dead Guy is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops. Dead Guy Ale is available in 22-ounce bottles, 12-ounce 6-pack, and on draft.

Measurements: 16 degrees Plato, IBU 40, Apparent Attenuation 78, Lovibond 16
No Chemicals, Additives, or Preservatives

Wow. 25 posts. That's crazy.
Dead Guy Ale had a good full head on it, and it smelled flowery. I got some of the head in my nose.
Very hopsy, but not undrinkably so. Very much like an IPA. I could drink a couple pitchers of this, as Darren could probably vouch for as he saw how fast I gladly put this down. A good solid beer.
