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: FEB 9, 2007 Looks like an amber, seeing as how Rogue’s Amber looks too dark to be an amber. Beautiful color and even better taste. Nice head and you can definitely tell that its a Rogue by its complex taste.

Darker brown in colour with a medium creamy head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Malty and yeasty nose, hops and some malts in the taste. Medium strength bitter as the taste progresses.

The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of yeast. The color is a clear amber or red and it has a small collapsing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with notes of oranges and yeast. An OK beer - but nothing special. A had much higher hopes for this one - coming from Rogue.

This is a very drinkable beer that is super-smooth. Nice hazy orange-amber body with a decent head in a pint glass. The head leaves a faint lace. Moderate aroma that is not overpowering, very enticing. Floral hops are noticable, as well a slight malt sweetness. The taste is clean and much lighter than I was expecting. Very well balanced with a good, bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Poured a cloudy amber in color, thin head, some lacing. Aroma was mildy hoppy with perhaps a touch of honey. Flavor was smooth and drinkable; a hoppy, honied sweetness with a slight bitter undertone and a slight sour aftertaste. Not bad.

pours a thick amber head that lasts forever but oh my goodness, this beer is hoppy. i'm starting to enjoy the more hoppy beers but this is still out of my league. however, it still is better than the other crap out there.

Nice, big head; similar to a pale ale, with a citrus and mildly hoppy flavor and sweet finish.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2003
This beer is a pleasing copper/ amber color with a bit of chill haze to it. It pours with a frothy cream to tan colored head. The main aroma is one of a malty biscuit, it is accompanied by a sweet hoppiness. This beer is very malty tasting, and lightly sweet. I must say this is a great session beer, lots of flavor yet it seems to be relatively light. A beer for when you aren't up to being assaulted by hop varieties and dense maltiness. This beer finishes with a balancing bitterness that counterpoints the wonderful mixture of sweet maltiness and hop flavors that are at the front part of this beer. This beer is what I wish Fat Tire was, I know it is a bit hypocritical, but I can still wish.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This beer has a darker color, and very little head when poured. The flavor is bitter, but it finishes with a pleasant maltiness. All in all it is a decent drink.

Dark ale with a light head. The aroma is strong and hopped, and the flavour is much the same, dry and hopped (nice). Overall a good ale.
