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.

Red amber colour, long lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity. Taste is initially malty, leading to a hoppy bitter finish.

Great beer. A little much on the hops for me, but overall very good bock. Slight cloudiness, and wonderful finish. Very light and cleansing.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Was 3.4 Its smooth for a dead guy. Cloudy orange amber with light orange white head. Which is really thick and slow to disappear. Strong hop aroma clean hop taste and no metalic notes. Creamy mouth feel with bitters on the back of my tounge. No alcohol notes great for a strong ale.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Copper hued with a light head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel. The body is semi-thick and chewy. It finishes with a fair amount of bitterness and a slight warming effect. An overall decent brew.
