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.

Very hoppy. Really good beer. Nice clear orange color. Fruity aroma. Malty and full bodied. Good.

Nice clear yellow-orange with a white head. Lightly fruity aroma with malt. Flavor is malty and full-bodied. Finishes malty with a strong hop-bitterness. Tastes like a sticke-bier.

Too damn sweet and fruity. A good attempt, but maybe "Ale" is not the best way to label this beer...

Bock? Ale? Damn Good! Lightly malty, slightly floral nose; rich, malty sweet, yet hoppy, and quickly bitter aftertaste- phenominal balance; MUCH better on tap than bottled. (tap rating)

I don't know, I was really disappointed with this particular Rogue selection. Not very good at all... Taste really let me down, slightly citrus-y with a sprinkle of mediocrity.

Pours copper, head quickly recedes. Aroma is malty and nutty, slight hint of citrus hops. Nothing overly exciting in the flavor department, I don't like is as much as I used to.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 re-rate 5/11/04 bottle, 12 oz. Almost clear amber/copper w straw head that could have lasted longer, minimal lace, good carbonation. Nose is of light caramel malt, & a trace of green apple w moderate hops. Flavor is nice, medium bodied, plentifull light to medium roasted malt. Pleasantly semi dry & bitter, moderate hops w a slightly fruit flavor. Not too sweet, but has lots of malty creaminess. Lacks the pizzaz of the higher priced brews but is a good quality choice for everyday beer, goes well with food. Add on 7/14/04: Had a more noticible medium roasted amber malt flavor with a pleasant spiciness this time. Semi-cloudy w a fair bit of sediment in the bottle. The head held up well this time. 8/16/04: It is a bit sweet with the slightest taste of alcohol.

Wonderful deep rich color. Nice full tasting beer. A terrific beer anytime. Great on the bitter side.

Smells of hazelnut, honey, and maple syrup with hops on top. Deep brown color. Taste is deep sweet malts with a nice hop finish. Yummy!

Nice dark golden body with a small, bubbly, white head. Very fruity with hints of nuts and malt. This is a sweet and flavorful ale that goes down easy.
