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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of yeast. The color is a clear amber or red and it has a small collapsing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with notes of oranges and yeast. An OK beer - but nothing special. A had much higher hopes for this one - coming from Rogue.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy amber with a slight haze and a yellowish, creamy head. Malty nose with some caramel. Lovely, full body with loads of sweetish malt and some very dry bittering hops. Rather good and solid Bock - German style, but nowhere close to a Maibock as the label claims. 130206

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2008
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet fruity hops along with some hints of caramel. Flavour is bigtime fruity and flowery hops along with some nectary hints. Wellbalanced and quite nice. More IPA/APA than bock.

omhper (18961) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2005
Bottled. Copper colour, brief head. Grassy caramel aroma. Clean, fairly hard mouthfeel. Full-medium bodied, a lightly pleasant touch of buttery malt, generously hoppy with resiny, bitter finish. A good beer, but has very little resemblance to German bock beers.

anders37 (15545) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2005
Dark amber colour. Medium think off white head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and honey. Malty aroma with lots of hops in the aftertaste. Has some sweetness from the alcohol, but you can’t taste the alcohol. This one is for my father.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2005
Beautiful dark amber color. Ordinary aroma, with a hint of hop. The caramel dominates this beer, with some hidden quite good hopping.
