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: SEP 1, 2012 This has been one of my favorite ales over the past few years, although I am not as big a fan now as I was about two or three years ago. Although considered a Maibock, it is somewhat darker and maltier than most Maibocks. It pours a slightly cloudy amber with a white head that dissapates quickly. Strong aroma of sweet malt. Very well balanced, flavorful and easy to drink. Dead Guy is a fine all-around ale that I enjoy throughout the year. I would also like to note that I experienced amazing customer service from the staff at Rogue Ales.

Golden Amber body under no head. Slick, moderate mouth feel. Satisfying heartier drink. No offensive flavors but no really positive notes.

Towey1989 (591) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malty of caramel, honey, some bread, spicy orange, subtle nuts and red berries. Taste of caramel, molasses, honey, red berries, bread then orange, cranberry and slight apple. Medium bodied and a slick texture. A quite dry, caramel then orangey, earthy bitterness in the finish. A very malty, sweetish start and then a fruity, citrusy end. Really decent.
