Review #18

Here is the link for the written review:


  1. Where is the written review for this beer mentioned at the end of the video?



  4. Thanks for posting the link. I was wondering where all the newfound negativity was coming from.

  5. Seriously, guys. You need to educate yourselves before you claim to be a "Beer Authority." Yes, I saw this link in the Beer Advocate forum, but I disagree with some of the knee-jerk criticism there. For example, I like the way you start your reviews with some backstory and information. Kudos for advocating good beer. But looking at some of your other reviews--you rated Arrogant Bastard essentially the same as Iron City... really? And none of you picked up on the fact that despite its name, Rogue's Dead Guy Ale is actually a lager. You stated at the intro that it's a Helles Bock but then repeatedly compared it to other ales. Come on guys... you can do better.

    BTW, I'm not hiding behind some anonymous tag here. You can find me on Beer Advocate under username Jettjon.

  6. I'm also a BA. And I know we're supposed to be "nice", but the fact of the matter is you, your blog and your fellow reviewers are idiots, talking out of school, and speaking of which you know very little. Absolutely ridiculous. You're not even remotely reviewing to style, but how could you when you clearly haven't any firm grasp on the styles. The Anchor review is my case in point. Please shut up and come back a year from now when you actually know your ass from a hole in the ground, beer-wise. And BA Jettjon, sorry dude, you're wrong, Dead Guy IS an ale, it's just a hybridized bastardized beer using a profile similar to a Helles bock, but it's top-fermented, buddy, NOT lagered. This place is full of crap.
