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.

Poured an orange/amber colour with a thin head. Aromas of caramel, malt and hops.Nice hoppy flavor with a good amount of malt and a dry finish. A good beer I think I’ll have more!

Pours little to no white head. No lacing. Aroma is a sweet malty. Color is a hazy copoer. I don’t know why but I get a Malibu Rum flavor from this, not that its bad , it just reminds me of sweet coconut for some reason. Slight bitter hops palate. Decent beer.

one of my favoriate all time beers. Good strong ale, not much in the way of aroma, some hoppy essence, but the gold lies in the taste. It has a moderate hoppy and bitter essence mayched with a sweetness I can only describe as "honey". Its not over powering, only adds to the quality taste of this wonderful beer. PLEASE BE APART OF THE ROGUE REVOLUTION!

One of those classic beers ive had a ton of times and have just got around to rating it. Pours a nice copper color with a great white head made up of tiny little bubbles. Aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt. Flavor is very well balanced. This beer goes down as smooth as drinking skeletons or something, what am i talking about?

A little faddish yet pretty true to the mark, a bit rough, solid overall performer made even better cuz I have a bottle autographed by Michael Jackson. Not that MJ; the Beer Hunter gadfly MJ.

savitska (163) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2004
One of the most balanced beers I’ve ever had. Good malty flavor with a nice hop finish. A little heavy and bitter for my more ale-attenuated tastes, but still an amazing beer. Smooth, clean, refreshing - everything a good beer should be.

on draft: i asked what this was, he said ’a pale bock’ i said ’filler up’. caramel colors with a thin tan head. lots of malty goodness in the nose maybe some prunes. into your mouth sweet cereal of flavors almost unfermented flavors. too sweet for me. but i like a bit more hop flavor...lots of these rogue beers to try!

Heard good things about Rogue and grabbed this for the cool label....was not disappointed. Decent amber color, fair aroma, with good mix of spice and sweet, not overly bitter.
