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.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Fresh and malty. Smooth, hints of sweetness. The mainpart is a bit sharp, typical Heller Bock flavours, sweetness with a nice bitter aftertaste. Round and fresh with not too much depth. A bit sticky in the end without being too sweetish. Nice.

Good, but nothing exceptional. Slightly dark with a little after taste that hangs in your throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (821) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Maybe I got an older bottle but not much going on with this beer. Some syrupy caramel malts and wheat flavours. Not too shabby but nothing exciting.

whoisghost (111) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2015
Toffee and orange on the nose, not as bold as iíd expected. Pours a nice burnt orange colour with a thin but robust, stark white head. This is a very complex beer but in a really subtle and understated way. Quite malty - biscuit and toffee dominant with a slight bitter hit intertwined. Thereís some floral flavours in the back end, with an ever so slight lemon twang. Superb levels of carbonation and great density. A little sharp on the back end but leaves a good mouth coating.

Wow, I donít know how many times Iíve walked past this over the years. Silly me! Pours a clear orange-copper with thin white head - no retention. Smell is wonderful - semi-sweet with malt and bread and citrus. Flavor also has a slight honey sweetness, balanced well with some hop bitterness. Finish has a trace of alcohol, but smooth and again semi-sweet. I must have more...

TattooJack (294) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2015
From the bomber, has a nice cloudy two tone (brown on the bottom, orange on top) look to it, little to no collar. Smells of sweet malt. Starts out really sweet but once the palate adjusts it evens out with carbonation and is very drinkable. I donít remember having a maibock when I spent time in Germany, but then again I donít remember a lot of things I did there. This is a delightful change of pace from what I usually drink, and I like that they made a German beer to celebrate a Mayan custom. Cheers.
