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.

Inbreak (2401) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2014
06.11.2014, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, caramel malts, dried fruits, nuts, grass, toffee, chocolate, broth, sugar, almond cake. Taste is slightly dry grassy, wet grass, minerals, weeds, hops, old leafs, paper, caramel malts, alcohol. Medium bitterness, slightly watery and mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough, too grassy / hoppy as a bock in my mind...

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2014
Tap at 23 Craft Beerz. Caramel, light bitterness, alright. Very inoffensive. Remember this as being less nice, but there’s nothing wrong with this. Caramel and light bitterness, that’s about it.

The most prominent taste with this beer is honey. It is oddly sweet but nothing to write home about.

Probably my favorite "easy goin’" craft beer. Golden, hazy, white foam, caramel, medium sweetness, low bitterness, medium body, oily feel, lively, long finish.

Nice malty offering well balanced by the hops. This beer was better before rogue started using their own farms hops and malt.

Bottle. When given a beer, I usually don’t refuse. This is one of those situations and I have time to rate. Anyway, murky burnt orange body. Sweet caramel and faded citrus hops, with some fruity notes in the aroma. Flavor is not my thing, and I’ve never really enjoyed this beer. Grassy, dusty citrus, some sweet caramel and just kinda gross. Medium body.
