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 Dead Guy seems pretty lively to me...he’s still kicking!

A decent beer, easy to drink, though the best aspect is the glow in the dark bottle around haloween time.

Seemed in between an APA and a bock to me. Has a fairly rich malty/caramel flavor to it, but there’s a big flavor of (cascade?) hops going on that I wouldn’t expect from a bock. It really worked well though.

Dark orange color, fruity and citrusy aroma. Strong hop bitterness, high carbonation. Sweet palate and a warming alcohol content. Too strong in the hop area for me.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Average bock beer, nicely balanced, very drinkable, but nothing too special

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 A deep flavored brew. Good stuff, very solid body and flavor. This one gets the ol thumbs up. Dead guy, what a cool name.

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - SEP 23, 2001
pretty dark amber color with an off biege colored head leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Good balance and mouthfeel with a hoppy bite in the end. Good work here!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 The beer pours a translucent burnished copper color with a monumental head that is frothy in texture, the color a light beige, and as it dissipates leaves behind a sticky thick sheet of lace. The aroma of bubble gum, sweet malt, fresh and pleasing to the senses, start is ambrosial, thickly malt, the top is moderate in feel. Finish is masterfully hopped, middling in its carbonation and the aftertaste bitter and long lasting. This Rogue Ale is a long time favorite with me and I always keep a few on hand and to quote William Congreve. “Dead Guy Ale hath charms to soothe the savage breast, To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak”. Well that’s not exactly what he said, but works for me!

This beer is hard to come by, but is a good example of Rogue’s brewing style. I highly reccommend this beer, and any other Rogue product
