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.

Aroma of banana, raisins mixed with hops spicyness. There is also nice touch of bread and caramel notes. In higher temperature alcohol is really noticeable. Taste: Very malty (bread, caramel) with toasted flavours. Spicyness, flowery notes which reminds me of black tea. It is quite sweet with dry, little sour finish. Good balance, malty and fruity beer. We can see that they used much hops. High drinkability. Good one.

Clear amber pour with a slight dark ruby cast. Massive head with normal lacing that retains well. Nose of caramel over sweet floral against a very subtle spiciness. Medium body with a smooth texture that hints at oily resin. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The complex flavor profile is quite nice and well balanced. It begins with a citric tartness, flows into a softer caramel light sweetness that gradually comes to the forefront with a bit of spicy heat. It finishes with a sweet fade into light hop bitterness coupled with a light spicy hop flavor. An outstanding and well crafted maibock.
