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.

Definitely a great brew from this brewery. I've only tried this one and the Yellow Snow IPA, but this one is better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The stand alone beer, not too intense, not too light. An overall perfect beer in my opinion. I could drink this as a session beer and be good to go. Just yes.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2009 Very drinkable. I’m not experienced enough to know what gives this beer it’s complex flavor, but there’s a prominent nutty-citrusy flavor throughout. Not real bitter. I nice introduction to good beer. :::::UPDATE::::: Had this Halloween ’09 after a couple more years of beer-drinking experience. WHAT A GREAT BEER! It’s unique and easy-drinking...but with some muscle behind it. [Raised a 4.3 rating to a 5.0]

This brew is like a mouth full of full flavored hops. The dead guy has a wonderful aroma that you just want to dip you nose in. Takes amber to the extreme. Very tasty!

Im such a huge fan of the pacman yeast and use it from wyeast at my local brew shop. This is a great example of a maibock from the westcoast. Tangy and prompt.

One of the better Rogue beers. Nice aroma. Terrific finish. Haven’t had a Rogue beer yet that I haven’t enjoyed. Rogue is at the top of my list!

This is my favorite beer, not just from Rogue, but from anyone. Smooth, full of flavor, not too hoppy, a hint of honey and malt.

I’ve read other reviews and was shocked that DGA didn’t get the praise that it deserves. This is the perfect beer! It’s bitter and hoppy but it gos down smooth. I don’t know what this fridge temperature talk is about...you gotta drink this stuff luke warm. The coolest thing about this beer is that its tap is a skull...that’s friggin awsome. Praise be to rogue because they rock it somethin fierce.

Probably my favorite beer from Rogue. Could be my favorite beer of all time. I like the smell of it just as much as the taste.
