I didn't get any of Yooper's Brews (I REALLY need to join in these swaps) but the head on that looks like a little too much. Is head like that charactaristic of the Brown Ale style or is this excessive?

All in all it sounds like Yoop got some good reviews.

No, that is definitely not "too style" for the head. I really have no idea why they are overcarbonated- I used my usual 4 ounces of priming sugar I believe, and I didn't bottle early. The ones here at home seem ok, but the ones that traveled seemed to really be overcarbed.

I'm glad you guys liked the beers- thanks for trying them!

Awesome. Superior's review indicated that it didn't taste overcarbed, so perhaps it was agitation in shipping? Either way, that certainly does look like an awesome brew that I'm going to have to make soon.

Merry Christmas ya'll!

Dead Guy Clone

Nice pop when opened, i poured it into a pilsner glass and had to stop twice, but it was worth the wait just for extra time to smell all the hop aromas.

Nice amber color, nicely carbed, good head, that lasted all the way to the bottom with nice lacing.

I drank it a little on the cool side but it tasted great, I have never had the original so I cant help much there but I will be copying the recipe and brewing it soon. I did save an inch and let it warm a bit (had plans to let more warm up but had no willpower) then it tasted & smelled even hoppier and more of the crystal & munich showed through.

Great job Yooper!
