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.

The aroma is slightly malty. The color is dark golden with a tan head. There is a malty sweetness to the taste and the finish on the palate has some bitterness.

drpimento (3755) - 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.

illinismitty (2377) - 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.

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!
