Rogue Dead Guy Ale: Take 2

I've been meaning to grab another Rogue Dead Guy Ale brewed by Oregon Brewing Co. in Newport, Oregon for about a month now. After reviewing it for the first time, I've had this nagging feeling (which wasn't my wife) that this beer should be a Best Sixer member. So here is the second chance.

Very nice floral and citrus aroma. The flavors are sweet yet not too sweet as it is nicely balanced with a good bitter flavor. There are citrusy flavors, maybe a hint of orange and a good amount of hops. Slightly spicy and a touch of honey are also nice flavors, although I don't get the same alcohol flavors that I did about a month ago (go figure). The tangy and hoppy aftertaste make this a crisp and refreshing beer. I do like it and would drink a bunch more if I had them. But for now, I'll stick with my Best Sixer lineup that is in place.
