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.

Poured a reddish color, with a sweet candy aroma, huge white head with nice lacing. Mild hop/caramel flavor, with slight alcohol taste.

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.

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.

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

I dig the Dead Guy. I nice amount of hops and enough malt to get this beer going in your nose before it begins playing with your tongue. Very easy drinking, a great quaffing beer.

Probably the blandest Bock I have tasted.I have grave doubts whether it should be even called by that name.Considering the complexity of the ingredients that the brewery says are in it this is a very simle ale.Pors nice with a moderate head, looks quite good but is rather boring.Nothing distinctive about it and not a lot of kick for a 6.6 ale.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2003
In my opinion this is just a classic "beer". No muss and no fuss. Just a damn good tasting every day down home kinda beer. I could drink this beer every day.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2003
Bottled. Tart bitter flavour. Golden, reasonable from the pour. It had a cranky bitter hop finish, giving it a cheap & corn syrup personality. Best bitter flavour without finesse. WARNING: Don’t drink this as the last beer of the night. Wow betide thee that does.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2003
bleaugh. an utter steaming turd in a bottle. overcaramelly malt flavours wallow in a sickly stew of sweaty/cheesy/banana esters. a bit cardboardy - maybe oxidised. and the finish is just random bitterness for no good reason, a consolation prize for all the sweet thick cloying crap you have to endure to get there. no balance, beauty or delicacy of any kind here.

I got this one on a whim (i'm easily swayed by funky labels) and i honestly found it to be pure whatevery. Mediocrity in a bottle!
