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.

Belle couleur orangée; arômes et goût fruités et houblonnés; légèrement sucrée avec une amertume moyenne en finale; me fait plutôt penser à une APA

Jur (285) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
Draught @ Bar Brouw Oost, Amsterdam. Not so Helles as you think, mild malt nose. Malty banana bubble gum, hard candy (zuurstok!), with mild bitter finish. Not really my thing, but not bad.

hobsch (435) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle 0.355l. Pours hazy orange with minimal off white head. Aroma is very malty, caramel, hints of honey. Taste is medium sweet, light to medium bitter, malty, slightly fruity, hints of caramel and honey. Aftertaste is quite bitter, soft carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Average but with a really good label at least.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Bière limpide, à peine voilée, sur levure et où une timide écume pointe sans marquer le verre. Au nez, du biscuit au beurre, de l’alcool, des esters fruités. Elle est moyennement amère avec un peu de sucre résiduel et une légère acidité. Elle est de corps solide, de texture huileuse, moyennement effervescente et se termine sur une douce amertume et de longs arômes.

Ni vet den där känslan av att man har glömt något. För att inte bli söndergnagd av denna oro går man i tur och ordning igenom sin "att göra"-lista. Inventeringen är för det mesta resultatlös. Och så ligger den där känslan kvar och jäser till sig, tills den framåt kvällningen är färdigbryggd: nu minns jag, det var ju en Rogue Dead Guy Ale jag skulle dricka!

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with nice tan head. Nose and taste are malty and citrus. I need to try this again.

Case (239) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2014
Pours clear amber with tiny head. Aroma is heavily malty, sweet, caramel. Taste is also caramely but balanced well with noble hops. Clean simple taste profile and good carbonation. As a German I can say this is a spot-on recreation of a Maibock.

adasko (247) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 1, 2014
It has a sweet aroma of malts and delicate touch of peach with lemon in it. It’s deep orange/amber color, a bit hazy, with small head. It’s very drinkable and so refreshing. In taste you can feel a bit of hops. The flavour is mostly sweet but it has this pleasant bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is nicely covered but it leaves a tiny tiny warm touch in your stomach.
