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.

AHouse (18) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Redish brown in color. Not too much head. Strong after taste. Average beer but not anything special. Not the best Rogue has to offer.

Gachupines (1243) - USA - AUG 15, 2005
Reddish brown color with white head. Taste is smooth and malty, not much of a hop presence. Little bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2005 Very smooth and very easy to drink. If you are looking for a very good beer that you can drink a lot of... this is your beer. Smooth from start to finish. Typical amber ale with a smooth hoppy start and finish is nice and malty. This is a beer that gets better with each sip, so if you don’t care for the first swig, give it another try, at least half a glass. Much better on tap than a bottle.

beerseer (51) - Lewiston, Maine, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Pours golden brown, honey-red in glass with creamy off-white head. Smells sweet and doughy; reminiscent of fresh baked bread. Tastes sweet in beginning, bitter at end. Rich and refreshing on palate.

Did not enjoy this beer at all. Will try another one down the road to see if it was a bad bottle or what.

One of my favorite beers. A german maibock made with ale yeast. Nice amber color. A very interesting rich flavor with nice aroama. I can buy it in 6 packs locally and you can not get most Oregon beers in Florida but Rogue brews you can.

fatguys (76) - Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2005
1 pint, 6 oz bottle in a huge, 48 oz Miller Lite mug. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with smells of caramel and malts. This stuff is quite thick with a real buttery palette. Several malt flavors here with a dry hops finish. Lots of caramel sweetness here. Doesn’t go down very easy; I’ve had some stouts that flow better. Lots of flavor, however, and it really warms you up. The most flavorful bock i’ve had. Would like to try on tap.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 deep honey in color. tastes of pears and caramel. i think this was it. this was the beer that opened my eyes to craft brews and how truly life changing they are. when we had no high gravity beers in this crazy city, this was what i grabbed instead.
