COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues 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.

Poured with small soapy off-white head that was mostly diminishing. Body is a hazy amber color, a little cloudy. Nose is of hops, malt and caramel. Initial flavor was lighty bitter. Finish was moderately sweet and moderatly bitter and average duration. This is a decent beer.

DerWeg (1628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
Extremely tasty & balanced Maibock - nutty roasty malts taste sweet and refreshing, and smooth hops favor structure over prominence. Aroma spicy and very soft/floral-hoppy. Nice dark nutty amber. Simplicity over intensity. Comparable to Creemore UrBock in its delicate flavorful balance.

good beer, a little pale, nice bottle label, brewed in oregon I believe, not as pale as sierra nevada, just the right amount of paleness, not really worthy of the higher price, a good simple pale beer that isnt too strong. if you can get it at a decent price its a nice drink.

As far as ale goes, this is my favorite. It has all the bite of and hops of ale, but also has a smooth crisp caramel malt like aftertaste. One of the few ales i could drink a few of in one night

35,5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Amber colour with a weak white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Very fruity flavour of melon end up with a great taste. Overall a very easy-drinking beer.

natrat (66) - Ucluelet, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
650 ml bottle. Great bottle design. Pours very nicely with a thick white head. Colour is red ale with a pinkish tinge. Smell is nice, with little hop aroma. Spicy smelling. Saazy. Unfortunately, has some off flavours. Maybe a bit stale. "Tastes like basement homebrew," was one remark I heard. Brew was cloying and oversweet. Hate to say it, but 3 out of 3 of us declared it a dumper.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Amber. Insignificant head. Well balanced aroma of rich malt and resinous hops. Big malt with hops in the finsh. Medium, creamy body. Nothing complex, but very good brew.

Great burnt orange on the pour. The head dropped quickly and left a faint coat skimming the top. The smell was tough for me to nail...it was so faint. I think I picked up some caramel though. The taste was full but very smooth. A very tasty beer to be sure.

One of the best bocks I have ever had. Great dark appearance with tight thin head. Taste is excellent with light hoppiness and strong cream taste and mouth feel. Not strong aroma, majority of flavor is in creamy taste.
