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.

Clear orange/amber color with a medium, short lasting light brown head. A very mild slightly hoppy aroma. Good balance between the hops bitterness and malty sweetness.

Yum, yum, dead guy in my tum. Smooth and sensual this mellow blend exudes quality. From the delicate sweetness, crested with musty malt and a citrus"y" hops which capstones the experience. The aroma is soft and perfume-like and speaks of roasted caramel. The head is a nice shade of dirty blonde and clings until the final swig. Nice color and consistency. Well done.

Reddish color. Malty aroma, nicely hopped. Didn't notice that it could be a bock. Nevertheless a good beer.

The Dead pours a rich, slightly hazy honey colour. It yields an average size off-white head, that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving some lacings. Good yeast and malt aroma, with a few citrus notes. Starts out sweet initally, and has a few fruity notes, but very few. Chalky, medium bitter finish. Nothing special here; I have others I would prefer. It has potential, but it lacks the character so many other beers have.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 Very nice arome and hop balance. I particularly liked the malt aroma and how the ale kept it's Dead Head. Every time I drink this, I like it more and more. Medium bodied with a faint taste of honey buried in there somewhere.

nice hoppy flavor one of the easiest to find of the Rogue Ales, so it does lack a little bit, some nice malty flavor as well, beautiful amber color

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Death, come sweetly to me/ Poured sprightly with deep amber hues/ And murky, pleasantly bearing a head/ Now pay the ferryman his dues./ Carried across the caramel Styx/ Headed to my burial vault/ From a unrepentingly hoppy life/ Peace found where there is malt./ Strangely, calm settles upon me/ Putting my suspicious soul at ease/ Generally not a fan of Rogueish living/ The Dead Guy beer doth please.

Bottle. Definitely hoppy. Not what I would consider a bock. The only word that I can seem to think of to describe is tangy.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Pours with a crystal clear amber body topped by a medium thick head with lots of lace. Slightly sweet lemony malt arom a with a good hoppy background and a slight smokiness. Slightly sweet yet bitter and hoppy flavor with a slightly malty character. The finish is short and bitter. Medium to full bodied, slightly tingly and slightly dry.

This is a nice red-brown creamy ale. Fruit is prevalent, and the bottle is cool. I was pleasantly surprised. Definately would drink again.
