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.

Clear reddish brew. Malty aroma. Sugary malty palate with some caramel. Some hops blended in nicely at the end. Was an unusual beer and I liked it. Thanks for sharing, Ron.

Bottle. Pours out a nice cloudy orangy-brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is mostly sweet malt with some yeast and even a little cider. The flavor is malty with some hints of brown sugar, caramel, dried cherry, and even some refreshing lemon. It finishes clean with some bitter hops. Complex and full on the palate. Very enjoyable beer from a very enjoyable brewer.

pleasant amber brown body with minimal head....aroma is a tad weak, with some sugars and spice, with some sort of a nut brown characteristic; flavor is more developed, with notes of caramels, nuts, sugars, spice, finished with a touch of hops and alcohol that warms the stomach....great palate, and another good one from Rogue

Pours a cloudy amber with half-inch head that is resilient. Nose is malty sweet with a bread and spice character. Mouthfeel is light and a little cloying. Flavor is bock sweetness with little hop presence. Highly drinkable and certainly a worthy effort by Rogue, just lacking in any quality that takes it to a remarkable level.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Pours a brownish almost root beer colored. Sweet caramel/malt aromas. Smooth malty flavor with a nice hop bite.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottled. Pours a hazy orange with a thin head. Aroma of mostly sweet malts. Taste follows along with some bitter hops. Nothing spectacular but nicely balanced.

3.2
daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Hazy amber/red color with a small head that does leave some lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet maltiness with only the slightest hint of hop. flavor is balanced and mild mostly some caramel sweet notes and just enuff hop in the finish to clean the palate. Plesant brew that is easy to drink but has no flourishing charecteristics.

3.6
GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pours with a small yellowish off-white head on a cloudy deep amber body with a sweet fruity aroma of apricots. Sweet fruity taste with a good, mildly hopped finish with hints of yeast.

The Rogue brewery is one of the best breweries in North America and this is one of their better brews. I would always highly recommend a beer from Rogue, and the Dead Guy would be no exception
