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.

DiamondD (38) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours clear deep amber with a nice somewhat rocky, light tan head that definitely holds its own. Rich medium malty nose. I love the smell of this beer. Rich but not overpowering. Very complex. Extremely different flavor. I can definitely detect the lager yeast. Almost full bodied. I haven’t had a Bock of any kind in almost a year. I’m more of an Ale guy. What is very clear to me after tasting this beer is either Lagers run over the palate differently or this is a well aged beer before bottling, cause this brew is smooth and tasty. A bit different also is the aftertaste. Intriguing. I really like this beer. At $10.00 a six-pack its worth the buy if you know your beer.

Bottle in LA. Pale amber, hazy, tiny head dissipates fast. Some malt and noble hop aroma, otherwise clean aroma. mildly sweet malt flavour, moderate bitterness. Hint of alcohol warmth. alcohol could sneak up you. Well balanced, easy drinking.

tightslice (507) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle from Gott’s in Palo Alto, CA. Malt and honey up front with a nutty mid and slightly bitter finish. Reminded me of something from Anchor. An American craft beer staple.

Unclear amber colored beer with a small white head, medium carbonation. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramel. Nice hoppy bitter aftertaste.

TorbenJensen (1334) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
The foam is coarse and moderate. Fine small pearl bubbles rise from the glass, releasing good flavors of caramel. Lovely bock with good caramel malt as first impression. Fine nuances of fruit and a lovely and well-balanced hop bitterness contributes semi-dry finish. Nice and tasty bock, which certainly falls in my taste.

Rich malty and hop aroma. Dark Amber garnet pour. Malty and hoppy, flavor is really rich, hops balance it very well. Great malt finish.

jamaty (1458) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2015
Ambar anaranjada, escasa espuma blanca. Aroma malteado y herbal. Excelente sabor de malta acaramelada, perfectamente balanceada con lupulos que aportan notas verbales y terrosas. Cuerpo moderado, perfecta de gas. Moderado amargor. Muy sabrosa.
