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.

Amber color, with a moderate creamy head that left an attractive film of tiny bubbles on the surface. Mild fruity nose, cherries, pineapple. Sweet and malty, a touch acidic, with cherry and orange flavors. Lingering mostly sweet finish. Interesting, and I'd like to try a couple more from this brewer.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2003
Orange color, thin head. Aroma has mandarin, lychee and peach. Rather thin. Hopbitter flavor with blackcurrant, peach and lychee. Blackcurrant and bitter aftertaste. Love the label.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Red-brown body with a light tan head. No lacing.
Malt with a subdued hop aroma.
Sweet malt taste with a powerful hop flavor. Big malty/bitter-bock aftertaste. Alcohol becomes more apparent.
Smooth but different body.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Bottle poured a coppery brown color and was slightly cloudy. The head was off white and fast fading (like the rogue honey cream ale I had right before it). Tasted sweet initially then got a little hoppy and finished with a hoppy and almost spocy finish.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Hazy orange-amber color. Small fast fading beige head. Aroma is light sweet malt. Flavor starts sweet then a quick bite on the tongue and a hop spicy finish. A rather tasty bock.

garrison (757) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2003
This is one very tasty libation, one that I quaff with much gusto over and over again! Verily I say unto you... drink this ale! p.s. The skeleton on the bottle is cool, too!

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2003
Medium amber orange crystal clear under a medium large shortish lasting head. Faint medicinal yeast and light malt aroma. Medium soft creamy smooth body. Medium well balanced hoppy and malty sweet start. Softer slightly fruitier (hint of orange peel?) flavours. Short dry clean bitter finish. Mild bitter aftertaste.

wouldn't have guessed it to be a maibock. tasted mainly of golden syrup with some salt and vinegar chips in the aftertaste

BBB63 (5966) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2003
I for one really enjoy this brew, it's dark amber color and white head is nice. Rich malty aroma with an undertone of piney hops, citrus, and vanilla. Starts off with an hoppy bite but the caramel malt sweetness balanced it out quite nicely. Hint of spice and alcohol on the finish as well. Medium-bodied with a dry and lively mouthfeel. While not true to the original style, it is still well done and recommended.

Golden brown, ruddy, thin lacey head. Aroma = caramel. Taste has a woody sweet start, bitter finish. Pretty hoppy beer.
