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.

Subtle aroma of hops. Pours a nice golden color. Smooth and malty to start and just a touch of hops on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

schavuitje (27) - apeldoorn, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
een rood bruine kleur en mout smaak als van een bok donkere toon licht bitter en toch watervlug een drogerrige mond. persoonlijk mis ik de volle smaak van mout die door hop opgehaald mogen worden.

SG111 (981) - New York, USA - APR 17, 2016
Bottled. No clear date. Pours dusty copper, off white head. Aroma is fig, cherry, esters, little bit of a cola aroma, little bit of hop citrus. Flavor is cherry, fig, it’s almost toffee but not quite. Orange hop citrus. Nice hop bitterness. A little heavy in the astringency but it’s really solid. I quite like it. It’s pretty complex and good. Especially for a German style beer which usually isn’t my cup of tea (or beer).

sdg (148) - SWITZERLAND - APR 14, 2016
Dark golden color, slightly hazy liquid; Quickly dissipating white head - Aroma is malty, caramel, biscuits, some hints of dark fruits, some hops too - Taste is sweet at first, getting bitter towards the finish - full body, rather sticky mouthfeel, below average carbonation. Long, rather bitter, dry finish.
