3. It's funny. Until a few days ago, I had never tried hard cider and now I'm really enjoying different kinds -- like today, I sampled 2 Towns' Ginja Ninja, a ginger cider and I loved it. Earlier in the day, I had my first pint of Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. I mean this beer has been around forever and I've spent a few hours in the Rogue Public House over the last few years and I see Dead Guy Ale in the grocery store cooler every single time I shop for beer. It's very popular. Now I know it's also very good! I have really been asleep at the wheel regarding this beer: it's a German Maibock, a splendid style, making it easy to drink. It's balanced, not that hoppy, and very satisfying. I guess I'll say it again: this beer has been around for over twenty years, and I feel like I've discovered a brand new ale! Wow.
