Dead Guy Ale

Deep honey in color, Hearty malt aroma, bold hop flavor. ABV of 6.3% The Clone Kit produces a drink that is virtually indistinguishable in color, flavor, and hop profile from the original.  It’s a beautiful copper beer with a rich malty backbone and firm hop bitterness built in the style of the strong bock beers of Germany.
