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.

Pleasant sweet, fruity ale. I don’t understand how this could be considered a maibock, however. Estery, fruity, honey-flavored characteristics are not unpleasant, but certainly resemble a West Coast ale more than a lager. Nice warming character; reminds me of a lower alcohol version of Lagunitas’ Brown Shuggga’.

Smell is sweet and grainy. Taste is sweet, a little fruity and bitter with a long bready finish. This is the second rogue beer iv’e had and want to try more if they are nearly as good as this.

12 fl oz bottle. Deep amber colour, off-white foam head and aroma of bready malt, grain, toffee, caramel. Taste is malty, bready, with some tangy spicy grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry grassy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

craighill (55) - GERMANY - JUN 27, 2015
One-finger head on top of chesnut brown body. Slightly cloudy. Aroma is malt fruitiness, some apples and toffee. Taste contains a hop bittering which punches through the malt character at the end. Very well balanced and moreish.

Creamy ale, not as much of the sweet German influence as I was expecting, decent, but no better.

fajry (1050) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 14, 2015
Výčap Zlý časy. Bledšia jantárová farba, biela pena. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, ľahko karamelová. V chuti stredne plné telo, nízka nasýtenosť. Zo začiatku sladkosť ovocia, neskôr karamelové chute a v pozadí veľmi príjemná dochuť prezretého ovocia. Výborné.

Plain old ale, nothing surprising, medium carbonation, nicely balanced malts and undercurrent woody notes.

Bright amber. Sweet caramel and floral aroma very smooth and intense. Hoppy finish. Very tasty ale.
