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: JUN 30, 2003 Don't know why it's called an "ale" and a maibock; I don't think a beer can be both. Anyway, pours a bright, almost fluorescent orange. Creamy malty aroma--smells surprising deep for a lighter-colored beer. Flavor is smooth and malty with a pilsener-type mini hop bite at the end (not surprising given the Saaz hops). There are some fruit flavors here, mostly banana and peach, with a bit of walnut. Has one of the smoothest and most enviable textures of any beer I've drank.

A great meduim bodied beer. I love the artwork on the bottle, and while it is being poured, you catch a bit of a fruit aroma, a balanced taste that is very mild and smooth, perhaps I did not pour it correctly but this beer had almost no head at all.

Orange tint to a dark golden colour. Fruity-strawberry smell and malty & hoppy tones. Medium body with a very light taste and a very subtle aftertate. No detectable characteristics keen to the beer. Too bad the taste doesn't give you as good of a beer as you'd expect from the smell and colour!

This one doesn’t know if it wants to be a good heavy beer or a good light beer. Medium heavy in body mellow in flavor with a very mild hop flavor and aroma

not too heavy. Clean and drinkable. Well balanced medium hopped finish. Little to no head.

One of my favorite beers. A bit heavy at first, but once you get through the first half, the extra alcohol kicks in and you don't care. Seriously, though, this is a great beer from Rogue.

This one grew on me as I downed the bottle. Not the best Rogue has to offer, but a nice lighter ale.

anticop (79) - Porterville, California, USA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 pours a dark amber, malty with a semi-strong bitterness, not a real strong taste, but a good ale

Nice malty ale. Fruity/grape flavor yet not too sweet. Not as full of a taste as I had hoped for. The flavor sorta dies on ya... maybe why it's named Dead Guy?
