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.

[22 oz. bomber] Pours a fizzy, golden color. Taste is quite malty- nice hops to round out the finish. Good, but not great. Pe

drpimento (3641) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Light head. Highly carbonated. Deep coppery- amber color. Very malty caramel flavor nicely balance with sufficient hop. very pleasant mouth and finish. tasty beer! Had it on draft at the Bodega, where it’s gone now except in bottles. Dowtown La Crosse.

3.5
illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Draft. Amber color with diminishing small white head. Aroma is dominated by fruit and sweet malt, very little hops detected in my sample. This drinks very smooth and balanced. Feels light and creamy in the mouth, with sweet malt, caramel, and slight tanginess, nicely offset by a wisp of hop bitterness that comes through stronger on the finish. Good, but not great. This would be a nice session brew with food.

12 oz bottle-pours a tan head that reduces. Color is slightly hazy copper/orange. Aroma is hops, malt. Taste follows. A good beer.

billism (44) - Missouri City, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2005
650ml bottle. Pourd a cloudy redish amber/brown color. Very nice sweet aroma. Sweet tasting malt and citrus flavors. Well balanced, not very bitter. One of the best beers I have tasted.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 Poured a deep, cloudy reddish-amber with a decent sized sandy colored head. Flavor was very malty with a slightly sweet finish. Nice carbonation and palate, very enjoyable. It is what I have come to expect from a Rogue beer, I can’t wait to try the rest of them!

3.7
KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2005
On Tap: A light reddish-brown color with a light ring around the outside, no head other than that. The aroma was malty through and through. The taste was similar, malts very prevelant, a crisp finish that I enjoyed, for a good mouthfeel.

4.3
OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Brownish amber in color. The taste was nice, rich and full bodied. Malty taste with a nice clean hoppy finish. I really like the few Rogue brews I’ve tried and I hope I can try more of them.

3.4
Ron (3963) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2005
From BOTW. Hazy red color with a small head that does leave some lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet maltiness with only the slightest hint of hops. Flavor has sweet notes and a light hop finish. Plesant and enjoyable brew that is easy to drink.
