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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2005 I really liked this stuff, which was weird because Rogue’s beers are usually too over-the-top for me. This was a mild tasting ale that went down quite good and didn’t seem too high in alcohol.

redish brown hue, very light head, slight sweetness at first, hoppy,ends w/ a bitter taste, a good beer, but can’t drink to much of it, probably tastes better on tap, next time...

A nice amber color. Not a strong aroma, but what is there is sweet and hints to the malt side. I can taste hops in there, but it is still malty. Not bad at all.

Cloudy amber brown. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is pretty hoppy with some possible citrus sweetness. Lively carbonation. This stuff seems to be all over the place where I live, so I find it to be quite good for a rather common beer.

I like this brew. Lots of esters, lots of malty sweetness. My wife doesn’t like it, which usually means more for me.

709 requirement of grabbing and cut and paste technology. Hold on, here goes - fruity (banana ?) medium beige earthy/floral bitter sweet notes of nuts and that hoppymonumental head that is frothy in texture. American plastic barbeque quality with the gumbo-esque dinner I had. Strikingly average. Still with a generous helping of frothy, almond chewy aftertaste tempered crisp and smooth mandari. Substantial syrup personality without stickiness. Manifest component.
