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.

Hazy amber with a diminshing head. The aroma is overripe fruit especially banana. Hoppy on the front, stangely salty in the finish. An interesting beer, but not one I would want to drink a lot of. Has a sort of homebrew/stale keg vibe.

Pours clear deep amber with a nice somewhat rocky, light tan head that definitely holds its own. Rich medium malty nose. I love the smell of this beer. Rich but not overpowering. Very complex. Extremely different flavor. I can definitely detect the lager yeast. Almost full bodied. I haven’t had a Bock of any kind in almost a year. I’m more of an Ale guy. What is very clear to me after tasting this beer is either Lagers run over the palate differently or this is a well aged beer before bottling, cause this brew is smooth and tasty. A bit different also is the aftertaste. Intriguing. I really like this beer. At $10.00 a six-pack its worth the buy if you know your beer.

Very nice ale with a cloudy reddish amber color and a nice frothy pale colored head. Nice malty flavor with a slightly bitter after taste. Overall a very good bock beer.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This is a very good ale that pours a cloudy, ruby color. The nose is pleasant and fig-sweet/hoppy. The tastes are lightly of citrus and piney hops and the mothfeel is a cloudy graininess. If there are fruits in the palate they are figs or plumbs. The smooth, medium mouthfeel leaves a light to moderately bitter tail. This brew was hoppy enough that I thought it was a malty APA. Overall, this is a balanced and superb brew. Perhaps it is just a bit too sweet.

Pours a nice red amber with a little whitish head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a little bit of hoppiness. Flavor is nice and sweet and smooth with some nice subtle hop finish. Covers the 6.6% very nicely. Overall I thought this was a very good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Really smooth, malty taste. Slight bitter finish that makes you want to take another sip. Bottle art rocks. I drink this every chance I get
