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.

650 ml bottle. Red amber colour with a frothy and creamy tan coloured head. Caramel and toffee aroma. Toffee flavour, somewhat intrusive roasted character, fruity bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly prickly.

Poured a brown amber color. The initial malty taste faded fast to a hoppy bitterness. Nice aroma, a good balance between malt and hops.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Re-rate. Decent beer. Malty at first then a little hoppy later. Some roastinesss. That’s about all I can come up with. This one didn’t do much for me. Won’t be drinking it again.

Amber colored, partly cloudy, thick head. Malty aroma, but a hint of sweaty feet. First taste was malty, then sweet, and finished with a little bitter hops. Very creamy and thick feeling

08.29.04 bomber. Lightly hazed reddish golden pour, large but dissipating head with mucho lace. Aroma is sweet, lightish fruit like ripe plum, whole grain bread with butter. Flavor is not that exciting, rather level, but subsantial enough to be a nice match with salty snacks. Body is quite thick, almost a syrupy feel, with a surprisingly quick and sharp finish for the style...certainly a PNW influence. Very faint acidity comes through more as a ripe grain fruitiness. Pretty good stuff, I think it reminds me somehow of altbier. Definitely not a session beer, but a nice diversion. Thanks Bunkypop.

A very good ale! Nice reddish copper color, a nice balance of hoppiness and maltiness, which makes it pleasant to drink. I recommend it!

Pours a brown/amber color. Has a malty hoppy aroma. Sweet and hoppy flavors up front. Sweet and fruity finish. A little caramel. Not bad at all.

A very good Ale, with a bitter taste. The alcohol taste is covered very well. A pale aftertaste.
