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.

08.29.04 bomber. Lightly hazed reddish golden pour, large but dissipating head with mucho lace. Aroma is sweet, lightish fruit like ripe plum, whole grain bread with butter. Flavor is not that exciting, rather level, but subsantial enough to be a nice match with salty snacks. Body is quite thick, almost a syrupy feel, with a surprisingly quick and sharp finish for the style...certainly a PNW influence. Very faint acidity comes through more as a ripe grain fruitiness. Pretty good stuff, I think it reminds me somehow of altbier. Definitely not a session beer, but a nice diversion. Thanks Bunkypop.

A very good ale! Nice reddish copper color, a nice balance of hoppiness and maltiness, which makes it pleasant to drink. I recommend it!

Pours a brown/amber color. Has a malty hoppy aroma. Sweet and hoppy flavors up front. Sweet and fruity finish. A little caramel. Not bad at all.

A very good Ale, with a bitter taste. The alcohol taste is covered very well. A pale aftertaste.

Good Rogue beer. On tap. Deep copper reddish appearance with a medium beige head. Nice floral, roasted malty aroma. Flavor had a typical bock aftertaste. Caramel, malty finish. Solid brew.

savannah (37) - columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2004
It was ok. The flavor was a little too strong-not too malty, not too hoppy...just not good. Attempted to balance level of hops and malt, but failed ot balance flavor. Both are a little too overpowering. Highly carbonated .Can only drink 2 before stomach hurts.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Pours a nice copper color with good heand and not much lacing. It has a earthy/woodsy taste to it. Chaulky texture and dry finish. Not my favorite Rogue.

Offwhite head that hangs about for a couple of minutes. The aroma is not too hoppy, much more of the malty caramel nose. Color is also very caramel. Hoppy on the palate, malty on the tongue. One of my favorite beers.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Massive caramel nose carries over to the sweet body. Bitterness increases significantly toward the end of the swallow with the sweetness nearly fading into nothingness. Light brown with mid sized white head. Sweet but not overly so. Very nice!!
