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.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This beer has a darker color, and very little head when poured. The flavor is bitter, but it finishes with a pleasant maltiness. All in all it is a decent drink.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2003
Dark ale with a light head. The aroma is strong and hopped, and the flavour is much the same, dry and hopped (nice). Overall a good ale.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Draft: Nice and dry, with a golden to brown honey color. A good malty and some what yeasty brew. Typical Rogue nose and palate. Over all pretty good.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - SEP 7, 2003

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Lightly carbonated orange-copper body. Fruity toffee malt aroma. Complex and tasty malt profile with flavors of vanilla and poached fruits. Well-balanced malt sweetness, hop spice bitterness, and light sourness. Not spectacular, but definitely unique and enjoyable. Revisted on multiple occasions, this beer never stuns me, but leaves me consistently satisfied.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours a cloudy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a rich, malty aroma. Taste is a ping pong of malt and hops. A moderatly bitter and smooth finish. Like Fathermoss said bitter and sweet at the same time. A fresh tasting, rich and drinkable ale, but I would argue with the bock category. An ESB on steroids maybe?

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Nice orange color with a small head. Great play of bitter and sweet between the hops and malt. Drinkable and tasty.

thehoff (585) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2003
This isn't bad beer but is reminiscent of many different microbrews I have come across. The hops is definitely evident, sweet, and bitter. OK

FatherMoss (21) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Beautiful reddish-gold color, almost nonexistent off-white head. Aroma was good, but struck me as somewhat forgettable. This strikes me as a very unpretentious beer - little aroma, almost no head, but the TASTE...oh my. What a banquet for the tongue. This Dead Guy has a little bit of kick left in him. Sweet and bitter at the same time, very smooth. Excellent brew.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2003
The Dead Guy pours a copper/amber color, medium body, with an off white head and an extreme fuzziness. The flavor and aroma are quit malty, but not overshadowing the pungent hops. I pick up on a nutty, flowery, grapefruit citrus essence, but also a cask like woodiness. Overall this is a pretty good brew, not exceptionally memorable, but a good Bock/Ale, what ever it might be.
