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.

This is perhaps the sweetest hoppy beer I've had. I found it be far more complex than any other Maibock I've had, with a sweet honey-malt base followed by some very pleasant bittering hops at the finish. Lovely!

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2003
Sweet malty nose, combined with a darker amber color. Very little white head from my bottle. Smooth taste, somewhat sweet. Hints of carmel, and fery slight impression of chocolate. Palate does indeed come off with a bite at first, then falls off. Im not a huge fan of bocks, but this one certainly is acceptable, to say the least.

A nice beer. Amber in color, hoppy and fruity. Pretty much your basic IPA.

slight tequila aroma. light caramel color with a bitter flavor. Palate goes from strong at first to smooth.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Body is honey with a decent white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Flavour is tart yet fruity and finishes hoppy and chewy. Good but Rogue as others that I prefer.

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.

JK (4961) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2003
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.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2003
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.
