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.

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.

One of my favorite beers. Rich and creamy without the bitter hops Rogue is noted for. Slightly sweet and very clean. Very nice.

Medium white head atop a honey-colored cloudy body. Breadlike and slightly hoppy aroma. Overall flavor is well balanced with a slight sweetness with mild (but noticable) hops. Nice dry finish. A pleasant ale.

Good red/rust color; Average white head; Aroma was sweet, clean, lovely. Good dryness from the hops. Nice maltiness as well. Tiny hint of alcohol. A standard bearer.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 27, 2003
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.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Reddish-amber hue with sweet roasted malt aromas. Full body with fruity accents and a long hop finish. Rich and hearty.
