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.

Introduced to this at a local pub that had it on draft. Now one of my top picks, i just wished that in the northeast it wasn’t considered such a premium brand at typically close to $14 a 6 pack. Highly recommend visiting one of their bars in Portland, OR - enjoyed a flight and still come back to this.

Headbanger (3663) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2016
22oz bottle 1/12/16 (Old Notes)-Pours copper with a decent head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and slight dark fruit. Taste of the same with a bit of grass and biscuit. This medium bodied brew is well done.

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2016
35.5cl Pours clear orange, with thin head, that goes immediately. Fain aroma of caramel and some malts. Slightly sweet, medium bitter, with some clear caramel and candy sugars. Reminds a bit of faro with extra ABV. Medium bodied, smooth with some sharp alcohol bites. Not fizzy in the glass, but livens up in the mouth. A pleasant drink overall.

Bottle: Amber in color with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is malty and some dark fruit esters. The flavor includes bread and caramel along with the fruitiness. The tastes is sweet up front and a mild bitterness on the finish.

kingaugusta (160) - Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Pours clear copper with a fine white head. Nose is weak and generic sweetness. Flavor is a balance of bread, licorice, and european hops. Finish is quick. Drinkable but unremarkable.

12 oz bottle. Didn’t know much about this...malty, almost stout-like but pale-ale in color. Surprising, interesting, good beer.

Pours nice golden and clear. Aroma contains some cereal, yeast, sweet bread, malts. Taste is balanced, some grain, cereal, roasted white bread, grass. After lasts surprisingly long and follows to balanced taste line. Very nice ale!

Decent ale. Not my style but not a bad choice when selection is limited. Once of the more standard of Rogue’s lineup

This used to be one of my favorite beers, yet I haven’t had it years. Time for a revisit. Nice golden color. Light carbonation. Lovely malty aroma of nuts, caramel, and breakfast cereal. Balanced flavor, a bit on the hoppy side. Grass, caramel, and a touch of yeast fruitiness. Still delicious, but it has fallen from my favorite beer pillar.
