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.

Pours copper, head quickly recedes. Aroma is malty and nutty, slight hint of citrus hops. Nothing overly exciting in the flavor department, I don't like is as much as I used to.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 re-rate 5/11/04 bottle, 12 oz. Almost clear amber/copper w straw head that could have lasted longer, minimal lace, good carbonation. Nose is of light caramel malt, & a trace of green apple w moderate hops. Flavor is nice, medium bodied, plentifull light to medium roasted malt. Pleasantly semi dry & bitter, moderate hops w a slightly fruit flavor. Not too sweet, but has lots of malty creaminess. Lacks the pizzaz of the higher priced brews but is a good quality choice for everyday beer, goes well with food. Add on 7/14/04: Had a more noticible medium roasted amber malt flavor with a pleasant spiciness this time. Semi-cloudy w a fair bit of sediment in the bottle. The head held up well this time. 8/16/04: It is a bit sweet with the slightest taste of alcohol.

Wonderful deep rich color. Nice full tasting beer. A terrific beer anytime. Great on the bitter side.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Nice dark golden body with a small, bubbly, white head. Very fruity with hints of nuts and malt. This is a sweet and flavorful ale that goes down easy.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Orangish brown color. Very sweet nose. Mouthful of bread and carmel malty flavors with slight hoppy spice running along the side of the tounge. Finishes ever so slightly bitter. Could drink a few of these in no time.

Amber in color with a lasting white head. Sweet smelling. Taste is sweet malty and grassy. I tasted too young to me.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Pours copper with abig white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy with notes of malt. Flavor is hoppy with a bit of bite at the end. A very above average brew, one that you could have over and over.

I like the look of this reddish/coppery beer wearing a cap of wacky white. Yeasty and malty and fruity on the nose, it is initially perhaps a little sweeter than expected or desired. However it mellows nicely and has a balanced hoppiness to end off. Sometimes Rogue leaves you a little more bitter but this was not overpowering at all. Decent.
