COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogueís 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.

One of the better Rogue beers. Nice aroma. Terrific finish. Havenít had a Rogue beer yet that I havenít enjoyed. Rogue is at the top of my list!

I agree with Kilgore415: it looks like a cool beer, it smells allright, but then the taste is strange and unrewarding. :( Donít let this beer turn you off to Rogue, though, their Brutal Bitter is wonderful!

Looks better than it actually is. A jumble of tastes, none of which are that good.

Deep golden orange coloured ale. Dead Guy Ale doesnít seem to be much like a Bock. Striking grassy flavours and a floral aroma highlighted this brew by Rogue. The finish provided a pleasent bitter.

didnít seem like a bock - tasted more like a nut brown. malty, too sweet at the finish. (had it under the DeadGuyAle moniker on 1/28/2002)
