Rogue Dead Guy Inspired Homebrew


My Rogue Dead Guy inspired home brewed maibock/helles bock ale has turned out fabulous.

Appearance – Reddish tan with a nice off-white creamy head
Smell – Distinct light roasted malty sweet smell
Taste – smooth sweet/balanced taste and hints of a light raisin – finishes sweet making you want more
Mouth – Round and whole on all of your tongue
Drinkability – Excellent drinkability, you could enjoy 4-5 pints nicely no full overwhelming characteristics.
Serving type: On Tap

This beer was a hit with all of my friends. Even the bud light drinkers, enjoyed this and had two pints. Definitely will be brewing more in the next week or two!
