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: 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 (5137) - 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.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2003
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 (2684) - 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.

What an appropriate named beer for my 100th rating. Not an exceptional beer, but I like the design of the skeleton with the beehive hat. Caramel, coffee and toffee flavors with a hint of bitterness. Mellow palate that hides the ABV. Can't think of a easier beer to drink while coding up the bastard child of ratebeer. Soy loco y con pistolo!

Dead Guy is a great everyday ale. Nice malty body balanced with subtle but omnipresent hops. Very nice.

I've passed this up on the shelf time and time again. Rather pleased at the selection. Malt tones in the front. More bitter and floral to the end. Light copper in color. Good session I would say if I had to.

Really really nice. I had no expectations, as I had no idea what this beer was, and it's just plain really good. One of the best mystery beers I've gotten in a long time. Malty and heavy, with a bit of a hoppy undercurrent. Very nice. Full bodied beer, wonderful to drink.
