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.

The stand alone beer, not too intense, not too light. An overall perfect beer in my opinion. I could drink this as a session beer and be good to go. Just yes.

Crash_the_dog (141) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Nice copper color, but fairly flat, with almost no head when served on tap. Nose and flavors were nice, but not nearly what I expected given the reputation of this beer. Maybe my palette had an off night - I will try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium carbonation, aroma is subtle with the taste of hops, malt, slight nutty flavor at the end. The carbonation seemed to wash over my tongue at the first sip, but the finish is nice.

Pours clean, almost no head. Smell is mild and hoppy. Hazy amber color. A lot of carbonation, a little bitter, but overall pleasing. Love the label. But I’m somewhat divided on the actual ale. It’s complex but vague and I’m not sure how to label it, but overall, it’s just okay.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, it’s darker than I expected, with very little head. Aroma is subtle malt, color is dark amber, darker than other maibocks that I have tried. Dry after taste, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

On tap at the Pine Room Tavern. A deep gold-orange pour. This is really good. A mild hoppy aroma. A very balanced beer, but a lot going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2014
Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je velmi výrazně znát po zrajícím sýru, Pěna je jasně bílá jemná, nízká a mizící. barva samotného piva je opálová a jemně kalná. Chuť má nádech zkvašeného pomeranče na ořechovém podkladu, finiš je výrazněji hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí vcelku mohutně, má slabší říz a je hůře pitelné. IPA se vskutku lahodným aroma a robustní chutí.

330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Hops, sweet, malts, candy in aroma. Sweet, malts, hops, grainy, faint alcohol, mango in taste. Sweet and sticky body. Medium dry bitterness in aftertaste.

Nothing wrong here but not spectacular. Don’t get me wrong, I would gladly accept one everyday and even pound a few but I ain’t searching it out. Copper cutey with malty muscles that it likes to flex. Some light smoke, earth, peat, resin and floral flave. Dangerously "everyday".
