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.

BDawg82 (74) - Jackson, Mississippi, USA - DEC 24, 2015
The sweet hop aroma mutes itself a bit with the typical hop character of most smaller brewed American beer. Very pleasing, surprisingly balanced flavor dutifully follows the aforementioned olfactory qualities. Absolutely nothing bad about this beer. But not much to write home about either. It is quite good, but the price can’t be justified. Ideally, this is what a seven dollar six pack should be.

Dal9000 (394) - Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours murky copper with a thin sticky head. Initial taste of ever so slightly sweet caramel. With a chocolate/caramel middle that fades quick but with a sweet lingering taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

hauxe (165) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Rated from old notes. A yeasty, hoppy concoction ... actively bitter at the start, but mellows as you progress. Faintly smells like apple cider, although no such taste is present. Floral notes. Remains dry and bitter for the duration with only a slight mellowing.

EyeAmBaldman (459) - Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pours clear amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is very grainy. A lot of carbonation on the tongue with a sweet finish. The yeast is very unique and adds a ton of flavor. Really good Hellerbock.

Bottle. Opaque Amber color with thin off-white head and very little lacing. Malt aroma with some dried apple notes. Malt upfront with caramel notes. Dried fruit, including Apple and apricot, and mouthcoating woody bitterness in the finish that is slight powdery. Lighter body than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KoNrRiI (953) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2015
0.5 draft. Hazy, tea color and a medium, white head. Aroma of hops, pines, some malts, hints of bread. Taste is malty with a noticeably strong hop touch. Medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is sweeter, more biscuity - props for that. Overall, not a bad beer, quite drinkable.

Sampled from a bottle at The Tilted Kilt S. Wabash, Chicago. Deep amber colour with a white head. malty aroma and very malty taste. Also honey and butterscotch with lots of floral notes. Powerful flavours and very full taste in the mouth. A really nice flavoursome beer.
