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.

neocon (34) - Gold Canyon, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2005
Nice dark amber with off white head. Has a carmel malty taste. Detect a little bit of hops. Finishes nice.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Vibrant, hazy copper-amber colour. Earthy, caramelly aroma with faint woody notes. Rich, chewy, toffeeish character. Full body. Smooth malts, toasty and earthy. The cleanliness of rogue’s yeast makes a credible "bock" possible.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2005
Thick, creamy, bubbly offwhite head with excellent lacing. Rich amber body (dark honey). Head dies down and looks like cream of wheat. Slight carbonation in the appearance. Wheaty, yeasty, heavy sweet aroma. Kinda breadish. Floral and grass hops dominate the flavor. Some caramel malts and some mild burnt malts hide under the hoppiness. Palate is mid-grade. The flavor has 2 parts. A mild initial taste then a strong finish.

SayNoToCoors (65) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2005
Now this is a good brew that is nice and easy to swig. I also find that most non-beer-geeks can handle this one, which is nice. This one has a good strong honey taste with a little kick of hops to balance things out. Worth a try!

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2005
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.
