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.

This to me is a perfect beer. Not over the top well balanced and very sessionable for its 6.5%. Big fan

Szivárványszínű illata sok jót ígér a továbbiakat illetően, ez az intenzitás és komplex aroma egy bak sörnek sosem válik hátrányára, ha egyáltalán van, amelyiknek nem tesz jót. Linzer, frissen sült kenyér, vajkaramella, csipetnyi likőrösség, harapható illatjegyek. Ezek az egymásba karoló, stabil aromák idővel azonban némiképp összeesnek, a hőmérséklete túlzott emelkedése sajnos nem tesz jót neki, bár nyilvánvalóan ezen tulajdonságában is sok hasonlóságot mutat a többi söritallal. A lehetőségekhez képest a körülményektől elvonatkoztatva kissé mézes, virágos, fűszeres és alkoholos, kenyérhéjas szerkezet bontakozik ki egy jól körülhatárolható grillázsos, karamellás keretben, amihez később egy füves savanykásság is csatlakozik. Szerethető karakterű, jól eltalált ízvilág, valódi természetét azonban érdemes lenne a teszt során rendelkezésre álló feltételektől eltérően olyan körülmények között felfedezni, ahol a nyári hőségben megemelkedett hőmérsékletét fogyasztáshoz alkalmas mértékűre csökkenthetnénk le.

Not my favorite type of beer, but an awesome specimen for helles bocks/maibocks overall. Nice light color but not lacking at all in flavor. Good sweet light caramel malt flavor with breadiness and no hop flavor except for maybe some spice on the swallow.

CanCrusher (629) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle 0,355L. Hazy, copper colour with creamy, off-white head. Sweet aroma of orange, mandarin, pineapple, biscuits and vanilla. Taste starts slightly sweet and crispy. Finish is moderate bitter and fruity. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation and still a lot of fruits. Damn, this beer is so good...

Bork (141) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pleasantly bitter, yet malty orange bock with a substantial amount of fruity notes. Alcohol pops into the finish but not so that it is disturbing.
