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.

One of those classic beers ive had a ton of times and have just got around to rating it. Pours a nice copper color with a great white head made up of tiny little bubbles. Aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt. Flavor is very well balanced. This beer goes down as smooth as drinking skeletons or something, what am i talking about?

A little faddish yet pretty true to the mark, a bit rough, solid overall performer made even better cuz I have a bottle autographed by Michael Jackson. Not that MJ; the Beer Hunter gadfly MJ.

One of the most balanced beers I’ve ever had. Good malty flavor with a nice hop finish. A little heavy and bitter for my more ale-attenuated tastes, but still an amazing beer. Smooth, clean, refreshing - everything a good beer should be.

on draft: i asked what this was, he said ’a pale bock’ i said ’filler up’. caramel colors with a thin tan head. lots of malty goodness in the nose maybe some prunes. into your mouth sweet cereal of flavors almost unfermented flavors. too sweet for me. but i like a bit more hop flavor...lots of these rogue beers to try!

Heard good things about Rogue and grabbed this for the cool label....was not disappointed. Decent amber color, fair aroma, with good mix of spice and sweet, not overly bitter.

DocLock (8602) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Pours burgundy with a nice white head and lacing. Aroma of hops, malt, and some sweet toffee. Tastes malty, with a crisp finish.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Lovely ruby/orange color with a lasting, white, frothy head. Aroma is mostly hops, along with some maltiness and honey. Flavor is a little malty up front, lightly sweet, and pretty hoppy in the finish (not an IPA?); a hint of vanilla and caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side and starts too fizzy for my taste. Overall, this is a solid, very drinkable beer, but it certainly doesn’t stand out.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Aroma: Some light malt in the nose, pretty clean. Toasty malt. Appearance: Head doesn’t hold, slight cloudiness, dark-honey color. Flavor: Cereal, malty flavor and a honeyish flavor is also present. Vague medicinal finish at first. Mouthfeel: Nice balance, hop bitterness is medium, very well-balanced between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Overall: Easy drinking, very tasty brew that I could drink as an everyday beer.

ClarkVV (4353) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 2004 Draught. Pours a rich, muddy, caramel brown with some lighter fuzzy oranges and yellows. Decent off-white head. What a great style for a flagship beer, not just a boring old IPA or amber or APA. Lightly sweet with some typical lightly sour notes in there as well, lots of chewy caramel malt, but also a good dose of hops that are quite flavorful but not terribly bitter. Wonderful balance, really good bocky flavor. Aroma has some caramel and hops, butterscotch, light earthiness.
