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.

Dark reddish colour with little compact head. Smell of malts, hops, herbs, honey. The taste is the same with well balanced carbonation and bitterness. For me very tasty beer.

Been drinking this for years, even when they sold growlers at bev mo. Big malty for IPA almost arrogant bastard like. Hops are dark fruit flavors. Slightly sweet on palate. Otherwise great big brew.

Lacho (19) - USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours with a heavy foam, beautiful color. Muted aromas. Tastes like an American ale, toasty, malty, not heavy on the alcohol. Great beer for tapas.

GlassBrass440 (207) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2015
Pours a hazy copper gold with fluffy eggshell head. Aromas of caramels, toasted bread, and a touch of campfire smoke. Taste is of caramel malts without too much sweetness. Alcohol shows as it warms. Finishes with a light tang and a caramel flavors. Full bodied with a faint astringency.

Light fragrance of flowers. The taste is very bitter and fruity. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth a weak moment. For bitter beer for me to like it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
