COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogue’s proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast. It is deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Dead Guy is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops.
In the early 1990s Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with MaierBock as the elixir.

12 oz. bottle poured into shaker. Hazy honey color with a modest foamy cream head that reduces to a slick in a few moments. Carbonation is slight but persistent leaving minimal lacing. Slight aroma of caramel malt with some light floral notes. Flavor is malt forward with honey sweetness giving way to a spicy middle and some welcome bitterness in the finish.

A really tasty malty brew. Goes down smooth. Deceptively strong. Lots of malt and a beautiful amber pour. Could session this all day.

Medium dark copperish / amber color pour that’s hard to describe. Nose & taste are hops, fermented fruit & bread. Excellent beer from an excellent & one of my favorite breweries.

tomekk1978 (277) - POLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa, piana znikoma, bardzo szybko znikająca, wysycenie nieskie. Aromat: raczej nie porywający - słodowo karmelowy. Smak: słodycz z chmielową kontrą. Goryczka niemal mietowa oraz nuta alkoholowa na końcu. Dość interesujące piwo, jak na jasne ale czy też koźlaka. Pod tym kątem smak wręcz zaskakująco dobry, a samo piwo pijalne.

Diver (8) - Algonquin, USA - MAR 23, 2014 does not count
The aroma is mild hop scent. It has an amber, orange, color with minimum head. A light bitter taste with medium body. This ale has a combination bitter and astringent finish. I would be interested in their other products.
