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.

Good rose colored ale. First sip has a nice tartness to it and a smooth aftertaste. Quite a hearty flavor for an ale. I had it with a nice american burger and I feel it really enhanced the flavor. A new top american brewery on my list.

Strong malt aroma ubundantly hoppy, alcohol thins the palate slightly, strong fruity, hoppy finish.

Red with hardly any head. Malt aroma. Flavor of an American dark that became too sweet as it warmed. I don't understand why this is rated so highly.

Reminded me more of an amber ale than a maibock. Malt seems to dominate the hops, but still like the balance. Found a pleasant molasses-like accent in the palate. Distinctive flavor in a good beer from a world-class brewer.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 Bottle.Small white head that mostly diminished, spotchy lacing, hazy, fast rising carbonation, and a orange golden hue. Nose was caramel, bitter, hoppy, grapefruit, and malty.Ditto for the flavor.Fairly smooth mouthfeel and medium in body.Decent for the style, nothing truly outstanding IMO and probably not one I want again as I didn’t care for the flavor.

thedm (5065) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 24, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Nice hoppy aroma. This brew formed a nice medium head without too much carbonation. It lasted only a short while though and left an excellent lacing on the side of the glass. It is a cloudy light orange brown color. It has a slight aftertaste but is still on the mild side. A nice drinkable but unimpressive beer.

Aroma of hops. Pours a beautiful orange-amber, cloudy, with a meaty head. Lacing extrodinaire. Mouthfeel is chewy, hoppy blast at the end. A quality beer.

Good stuff. Full-bodied with a nice color and flavor. You can definitely tell you're drinking a "real" beer.

Shag (2678) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 Excellent beer. Cooper color with a nice head. A good hop flavor with the malt making its self known. Nicely balanced. A bock? I dont know but for fans of IPA's, APA's, or any hoppy beer, you cant do wrong here.

Great looking deep read/amber in color. Definite bursts of flavor all the way from the time it touches the lips to the swallow.
