Default The greatest beer reviewer ever!

Ok, I have seen this guys videos posted on here before. He has several different beer reviews on youtube. Here is his review for Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. It is absolutely hilarious and entertaining!

My thoughts on this:

1) Where was this recorded? Looks like a tent in the mountains of Afghanistan.

2) I think the reviewer is "Chet", the bully brother from Weird Science.

3) What a meatstick! Or a douche. Or simply just a huge tool.

4) He doesn't like the beer because he can't see himself playing "beer pong" with it.


That being said, although I don't agree that Dead Guy is the "worst beer ever", I'm not a fan, and I don't understand what all the hype is about. Rogue makes awesome beers, maybe I'm just not a fan of the style. Isn't Dead Guy a Maibock?

He smells the beer from the bottle, not the glass lol.

But yeah, Dead Guy is pretty terrible.

DGA is a Maibock-style ale. Maibock (lager) grainbill, fermented with Pacman.

Heh... he smelled it from the bottle. Not terribly wrong - but you can get a much better sense of the aromatics of any beer by pouring it into a proper glass.

I didn't really pick up too much humor in it, and he really didn't do much of a review. No comments on head, body, mouthfeel, carbonation, etc.

I'm guessing that he's a BMC guy and considers Blue Moon to be an exotic import.

I think the image on the bottle is what sells the beer..lol..Although for what its worth it is a Maibock and it came out in the 90's. I think that is pretty impressive for a Micro Brewery at the time. Im not a fan of this particular beer but Rogue does make great beers. I remember when Sam Adams was the only beer that you can taste the hops in years ago. Oh and what's up with the AK-47's on the wall? I guess thats for the people that don't agree with his reviews?

Unless this is satire, this guy just lost all credibility with this one. Here's his review of Coors Light - which, according to him, is considered a pale ale:

Then again, he can pickup barley while smelling the bottle, and the hops.

LMAO.. here are some other beers he's tried that don't hold a candle to Coors Light:

Fat Tire
Small Anchor (I'm guessing he means Anchor Steam) - "Really, really gross"
Slavochik (dunno, I've never heard of it)
Sapporo - "that sh!t sucks"
Fosters - "This sucks, this is nasty... it's Australian for whale piss"

St. Pauli's Girl (St. Pauli Girl) - "Actually not too bad"
Beck's - "Actually pretty decent"

"But by far, all these beers get their ass kicked by Coors Light."

This is like a train wreck... I can't stop watching...

I really love this guy! He gives me hope that I could review beer and people will put it up on the Internets.

Seriously though. Did he read up on the style and description before tasting? Does he only like lighter, drier beers?

I mean, DGA is ok, not my favorite style, but it doesn't make me want to vomit! I think he is just averse to thicker, maltier beers. Hideous is a bit harsh, and not very helpful for a review. Does it meet the style? Yes? Then maybe your tastes are the problem!

I don't like Sour beers. If I had to review one though, I'd be honest and say ahead of time that I don't care for them and keep that in mind.

Heh. I'd like to see him sample a good funky Belgian style! Tasting of horse and leather.

I know this guy has been mentioned before but I LOVE him. You have to check out his coors light review. He attests that this is the greatest beer in the world, says it is a pale ale several times, shows us how to properly pour a beer while dribbling half of it down the side of the glass; what can you not like about this guy.

I guess I give him kudos for being a BMC die hard beer drinker while still having the balls to try a ton of other beers outside his realm of taste. If only he could know a little more about beer before reviewing them, like the difference between lager and ale.
