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.

Draft: redish color, small white head. Aroma is pretty faint, though there is a touch of hops, and maybe a bit yeasty. Flavor is slightly hoppy, a little malty, with a bitterness throughout. Palate is pretty thin. There's not much to say bad about this beer, but there's not much good to say either.

Reddish-amber hue with sweet roasted malt aromas. Full body with fruity accents and a long hop finish. Rich and hearty.

- a slightly opaque amber color, light bubbly head, aroma is malty with a definite hop touch, sweet caramel and buttery as well; flavor has a sweet maltiness with a bitter/hop filled kick, butter toffee, caramel, light fruitiness (bananas), good texture

Dorwart (2375) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Small head which dissapates quickly. Not much carbonation. Seemed a little bit flat to me. Decent foggy dark amber color. Roasted malt aroma with slight overtones of fruit. Hops present in the flavor but seems to be a little weak/watery in the flavor dept. Slightly bitter and hoppy finish. Not a great beer but complemented the ham dinner I just ate really well. I guess every beer has its place.

Hazy light amber liquid, intermitent lace and quickly diminishing off white head. Seems too dark for a true Maibock, but then again, it's also supposed to have lager yeast. You go Rogue! Nice Munich malt aroma to start followed by yeast, then light raisiny and a little bit of alcohol. Other fruity esters seem absent even as it warms. The Munich Malt flavor is interrupted very abruptly by the hop bitterness and there's some hop flavor as the beer heads down my throat along with some resinous hop mouthfeel. The raisiny aroma does not come through much in the flavor and this beer seems to be balanced toward hops, which seems slightly out of my expectations. It seems a little astringent due to overhopping and it also has a medium body. Also not what I'd expect out of a Maibock style (lager or ale). The carbonation is very nice, but this is definitely not my favorite beer from Rogue.

Nice beer. Nice off-white head. Noticable Malt and hopps and appropriately balanced.

Very rich, malty flavor and good color, smooth with an aftertaste, but not very irritating.

Nice tan head. Malt/yeast aroma. Slightly cloudy amber color. Rich malt taste--you don't notice the hops.

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2003
Nice dark amber with quickly diminishing head. Full bready malt flavor, but dominated by the Pac NW hoppiness. Flower petals, piney resin, soap and grapefruit. There is a nice smoothness about it with the hops reigned in enough to provide an astringent bitter finish, but still leave the lining of the digestive tract intact. Standard sort of well-made West Coast micro-brew - not a criticism.
