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.

This is easily my favorite every day beer. The aroma is very clean and crisp. with a good malty smell. The aroma just makes me want to drink this beer. P.S. Really cool label!!

Love it, my current favorite commercial beer (American anyway). Not really a beer that one can categorize, but if a bunch of Germans wanted to brew an ale for Americans, this would be the beer they come up with. APA + Alt + Maibock = Dead Guy

I’m not sure this is really a bock. And it tastes kind of wierd.... BUT, I like wierd stuff. Light golden/hazy amber color. Thick and sweet, with a dry finish. Nothing else quite like it. The Christopher Walken of beers.

Got a Growler yesterday...very good...not as good as it was on tap but better than the bottle. Will use great Dead guy Growler to homebrew in. Poured nice/strong...good brew to watch the Celts win yesterday

A rich, robust flavor with a pleasant after-taste. The 1/2 gallon glass "growler" or bottle is a classic and a must for any collection. A good beer but as a stout/porter lover this ranks #4 on my list of Rogue Ales.

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 (1678) - 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 isn’t too strong. if you can get it at a decent price it’s 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

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005
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.
