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.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Pours a slighty hazy dark orange with a mild off-white head that dissipates quickly, but there is nice lacing--thank god. Aroma is a woodsy, buttery one. malt, malt, and more malt which disappears almost immediately. This beer is very smooth, but rather one-dimensional. The palate is pretty watery. I think this beer is quite overrated.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Deep amber brown color with minimal white head. Aroma is apricots, caramel and hay. Flavor is sweet malt with bracing hops, but a little unbalanced. Lingering bitter, metallic finish. Nice medium body with little carbonation.

VTDeerHunter (51) - Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Hazy, copper with a small, white head. Malty and caramely nose. Flavor was malty with a little hoppiness in the finish.

Sweet beer. Really malty probably too much. Could use more hops to balance.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2003
I found the malt character of this beer to be too pronounced. There is hop bite at the end, but the hop and malt flavors never coincide. I thought this beer was interesting at first but the more I've had of it the less enjoyable it gets.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Sweet fruity flavors. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but good none the less.

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Poured a reddish color, with a sweet candy aroma, huge white head with nice lacing. Mild hop/caramel flavor, with slight alcohol taste.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Hazy golden brown color. Not much aroma. Small tan head. Not too much flavor going on in this one. A mild hopping with a musty malt flavor. Really kind of boring and uneventful. I was expecting more.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Amber in color, light tan small bubbly half inch thick head. Very appealing to look at. Smells of light floral hops and yeast. Start and middle are a little bit empty, but ohh the finish is so nice. Good fair amount of hops with a nice dry hop bite. Sip or drink it slow, its quite smooth with a nice hop bite. Drink it fast and watch out, the hop bite bites. Has a light body feel and leaves a dry hop tang in mouth and tongue.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 25, 2003
On draught. Appearance: hazy, honey colored w/ a medium white head. It has a malty taste up front w/ a bit of a funky tart finish. Maybe grapefruit or lemon? unique, to be sure
