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.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 On draught at Rogue Distillery and Public House. Amber colored with foamy head. Malty, bready aroma. Satisfying sweet malt flavor with slight hop bitterness.One of the first craft brews I had years ago. Forgot how sweet, citrusy, and overall great it was.

LearninBeer (486) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2016
The aroma is malty, roasty and a little caramel. Pours a clear copper with white head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter and a touch sour. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very good!

josanguapo (1158) - SPAIN - OCT 13, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 From decervecitas. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 4x08. Sweet caramel, molasses, with good herbal hop bite to compensate it without removing protagonism from the malty profile. Very drinkable, invites to long sips, specially as it warms up

About as clutch as a beer can get, Rogue’s Dead Guy might be the best workhorse in craft beer this side of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Big, doughy, caramel malt front with a brisk, euro-hopped finish, piney and herbal and bracing, with a gentle fade. Easy to drink, even easier to order a second.
