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.

(on bottle)Light, hazy, amber color.Not a big nose, a bit of malt, but nothing for a bock. A tad of dried fruits too. Watery mouth, no malts there either and has a dry, malty(at last) finish.

Reminds me of the flavor you would get if you mixed a Shiner Bock with a Harp. Finishes relatively bitter but not unpleasent. The Little dead guy on the label is an eye catcher but the beer is nothing special.

SDalkoholic (2248) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Thic foam that will mellow out and fair share of lacing is left behind. Very hard to smell much in this so that didnt earn points. Flavor is slightly malty with mixed nuts, and has sweet caramel added. A dry and yet weird type of bitteness comes across that didn’t statisfy my expectation.

This has a nice amber colour bordering on brown. There is a thin head with good lacing. The flavour is initally a bit sweet with a bitter finish. It has a very nice mouthfeel with good carbonation and thickness.

Wonderful brown color and aroma. Tasty and refreshing with no overwhelming after-taste. Definitely will buy again.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
The bomber bottle glows in the dark, in case you didn’t know. This is a tasty concoction that I drank initially because of the kickin’ bottle. (I am somewhat intrigued by skeletons.) Anyway, get past the marketing ploy and you have yourself a very refreshing drink.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 I expect a bit more from rogue... Amber/brown coloured. Very malty aroma and flavour with sweet notes of nuts and caramel. Rather short finish... but balanced well enough.

chandernagor (39) - Oak Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Amber color with a white head, slightly hazy. Aroma is sweet, very fruity (peach, banana) and caramely, with hops as well. Thin mouthfeel and too much fizz for me. Flavor is sweet at first (toffee-caramel, nuts and fruits) with a much bitter finish. Not the best thing I’ve had, but definitely nice and refreshing.
