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.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 Pours red/amber with a medium white head and light lacing. Slight bitter "classic bock" smell, with a sweet undertone to it. Tastes slightly bitter with a sweet undertone. Aftertaste is quite nice. Decent beer. Gets old though.

A very good any time drinkable beer. Goes well with whatever your doing, whether your having a meal with friends, playing frisbee or just chilling in front of the tube.

Had this first time on tap on the bay in Seattle. Pretty good beer; fairly hoppy. I’m rating it now after buyin a liter.

This beer was a little bitter than I expected. A little malty favor as well. Still better than your average beer.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Pours a nice hazy copper with a soft, cream head. Little aroma that does hint at banana, but very light. I really don’t detect any hops, as the bready malts really control the flavor. Mild, sweet and consistent all the way through.

I had heard it was great, was merely pretty good. A little more bitter than I had hoped for, especially after a couple. All things said, I would buy it again.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2005
copper color w/ a nice large bubled off white head that laced fairly well. Smell is smooth and enticing, a bit of a carmel malty w/ some hop (is this a mai bach?) Palate is nicely carbonated and smooth, not overly creamy though. flavor is a plain malt, not the carmel sweet I smelled, a bit of an oddly flavored hop that I haven’t decided if I liked or not yet. Overall a decennt beer w/ a good flavor.

Now here is a beer with a great name, can anyone drink this and not feel like a badass? The flavor is enjoyable with a nice smoothness that makes this a good starter beer for anyone wanting to get into craft brewed beers.

As much as I like Rogue’s brews, this is not my favorite. Nevertheless, it pours a somewhat cloudy amber with lacing on the glass. Somewhat sweet with more malt flavor than hops (as a Maibock should be). A bit of hop bitterness to offset maltiness, but certainly more malty than bitter. An OK beer in my book.

Pours a nice caramel with a tint of amber. Decent light head. Aroma of caramel. Tastes malty with caramel overtones as it warms nicely balanced with hops. One of my favorites. Goes well with all meals.
