Beer of the Week: Dead Man Ale

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Since 1989, the Oregon-based brewery Rogue Ales has produced 60 different ale varieties. Each was brewed with its non-pasteurized process and is made with no preservatives.

The Dead Guy Ale is a hazy amber color and pours with a thick, white head.

The aroma of the beer smells like caramel malts, rising bread, and a touch of citrusy hops.

The brew tastes similar to the way it smells. There is a fresh orangey taste upfront, which turns into a crispy cracker flavor, and finishes a tangy hoppiness.

The brew is a German Maibock style beer and is 6.5 percent alcohol by volume.

The Dead Guy Ale should be paired with pork or hot and spicy dishes.

So crack open a bottle this weekend — it will make you feel alive again.
