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.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Medium brown/copper clear body with medium tan head. Caramel, dark fruit, malt aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity. Palate is very smooth and a bit thin.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy amber with a slight haze and a yellowish, creamy head. Malty nose with some caramel. Lovely, full body with loads of sweetish malt and some very dry bittering hops. Rather good and solid Bock - German style, but nowhere close to a Maibock as the label claims. 130206

I don’t think I’ll ever understand the hype behind this very simple session beer offering from Rogue. True maibocks, while more reserved and subtle in style, can be quite interesting without lacking depth of flavor. Dead guy simply falls flat for the purported style. It pours a simple flaxen colour with a weak head and a very basic "beery" nose. The flavour is one dimensional and unremarkable. A 6-pack beer that is an encouraging step up from Bud for the uninitiated.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Bottle Pours a cloudy murkey amber orange with a small tan head. Head left quite quickly but produced good lacing. A good aroma of hops and malts. Malts of caramel, molasses, and coffee. Has a good touch of hops from citrus. It is very nicely carbonated with a good palate. It is not as malty as the aroma would indicate. Has a very good mix. Has a light to medium body. A decent aftertaste and a good sweetness, which is well hidden. A very tasty beer.

The aroma is buttery, yeasty, malty, and full of caramel and toffee. The appearance is amber with a smal head. The flavor is exactly like the aroma and very yummy. The palate is a little on the thin side but overall it’s very good.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 A classic from Rogue and one of their best. A nice grain profile in the aroma and flavor with integrated hops as well. A well-structured body makes this quite a satisfying beer.

3.8
zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Aroma of honey and malt. Rich brown color. Has a balanced flavor of roasted malt and hops that have melon and pear notes, medium body and a sweet clean finish.

3.3
