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.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a rich copper witha thin ivory head. Smells of pale malt and lightly fruity yeast. Light hoppy aromas. Taste is quite fruity and malty. Yeasty and sweet pale malt. Lots of floral hops up front with an understated but strident hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with a nice bitter aftertaste. Pretty good but I thought I would like this more.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours copper with a decent head and carbonation. Head settles back to about 1/4 of an inch and remains and laces decently. Aroma is caramel and bread and a touch of hops. First sip and you can tell that this beer has body for a bock. Some definite caramel malts coming through quite sweet yet balanced well with hops that give it just a touch of fruit taste on the back of each sip. A very simple brew yet a smooth drinker for a session. On the palate this is pretty creamy and less carbonated than I originally thought by the bubbles. As usual Rogue knows what beer drinkers want. I like this one and will reach for it again soon!

Nice mild yeast aroma....malts add to an enjoyable sweetness. Possibly a bit too sweet for me. Light on the palate....reminds me of apricots. It’s a decent beer.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Coppery color, thin head. Sweetly malty, but with an impressive hop backbone to balance. Quite simple, I guess, but a tasty session beer.

Louipa (121) - USA - MAY 7, 2005
Usuall ale aroma thats not very strong. Slightly lighter color than most ales, and slightly less rich in flavor than most. A good ale, but I usually prefer one with a richer flavor. It felt like something was missing.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2005
On tap: Nice slightly hazy nut brown blondish pout, with a thin line of off-white head. Aroma is a light buttery and nutty wisp, mostly backed with sweet malt. Flavors seem weak to me, without much depth, yet well rounded. The nutty flavors are well balanced with a good dose of Saaz hops. Some citrus slides in. Palate is very smooth, refreshing and crisp, leaving a light oily coating that keeps going.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Honey amber color. Very little head. Aroma is malty with floral and (apple?) notes. Taste is rather sweet. Also fruity with a little hint of citrus. Hop character can be detected in the finish rather than on the tongue. Overall a very good ale. I would buy it again.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Nicely lasting light tan frothy head. Reddish amber body. Flower blossom pineapple and perfume aroma. Nice balanced taste... good perfumey Saaz hop character, good amount of sweet fruity malt. Fruity gets a little odd at times... occaisional hints of candy strawberry and/or watermelon. Good stuff
