"I'm enjoying a Dead Guy." (Yes, there's a definite 'ew' factor to that one.)
"This Dead Guy is an Oregon donor."
And, of course, the classic play on the dead-fly-in-the-soup gag, as used in the title of this post.
But all kidding aside, there's a great maibock that has made its way to the shelves of my local LCBO that I thought I'd share with you.
Dead Guy Ale (6.5% ABV)Appearance: light to medium amber with a whitish head.
Beer O'Clock rating: 4
Nose: malt and honey.
Palate: slightly burnt butter, malt, and wild honey that carry through to a flavourful, nicely hopped finish.
Overall impression: while drinking this ale (which I drank from a fluted glass), I couldn't help but think of butter and honey on toast. As this is a spring ale, I might also have enjoyed it with breakfast.
Dead Guy goes down nicely... ugh... I mean, this ALE goes down nicely and is easy-drinking, despite its alcohol content. Although the alcohol levels might account for the fact that I inadvertently deleted the photos that I shot of the bottle and my freshly poured glass.
Go out and grab a Dead Guy before it's gone from the stores... ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
No bones about it!
