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.

Deep amber color with nice everlasting foamy off-white head & lace. Sweet aroma caramel, fruity with hints of piney hops. Medium, & creamy body. Flavor has hints of yeastiness, a tiny bit of toast, some caramel sweetness finishes with a hop bitterness. Fit for a king, or a dead guy.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Dark orange with small off white head. Decent mouthfeel, with a thin malt flavor being overcome by hop flavors and aroma developing into a mildly bitter finish. One of Rogues most widely distributed and enjoyed offerings, and for good reason.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2005
Hazy orange colour. Thin white head. Citric, hoppy toffee nose. Fruity, almondy bitter flavour. Quite refreshing, interesting brew.

marcus (9687) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 8, 2005
On tap at Rogue brewery. This amber ale poured with a nice off-white head. The flavor was light, pleasant, crisp and clean. Not as pretentious as some of the other Rogue ales.

harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
650ml bottle from Morrisons. Dark orange clear beer with lasting beige head. Intense US hop nose with hints of chocolate limes. When I say hints I mean completely unsubtle flavours. Really nice in mouth, got good strong mouthfeel with malts and alcohol coming through. Then smooth choc lime finish with drying intense hoppiness. Superb with good lasting flavours

Wow! Something really different. Color lives up to billing - deep honey indeed. Head and activity were disappointing, taste wasnt. Nice, genuinely hoppy ale taste, without the usual overwhelmingly bitter attack and finish. Almost sweet for crying out loud! Maybe the honey color comes from the real thing afterall? Surely not an everday ale for most people, but a WAY TASTY occasional treat for serious beer lovers all the same. Excellent brew! Try it back to back with Rogue American Amber for a nice, stark contrast in tastes.

Hello butter, i love what rogue is about and the amount of different styles they have but maybe they should have a di-acytel rest once in a while.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Bottle. Fantastic beer, nice label on the front of the bottle. Slight taste of hops, interesting flavor, and very smooth. Finally re-rated this beer. Its still a good, solid beer, but I need to revise my pretty naive review from 3+ years ago.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 $9.99 for a six pack at Broudys Jacksonville, FL. Pours copper/amber with a small white head. Hoppy, malty aroma. Flavor is oddly fruity, with a lightly hoppy bitter finish.. A great caramel hit. Nice medium body and mouthfeel. Carbonation is good and not overdone. An interesting beer that is a bit out of the ordinary. Pretty good. . ... . Rerate .. 08/24/2007 .. ... .. On tap at Mello Mushroom. This stood up well on tap. Sweet with a delicate bock flavor, and at the same time had a good hop character. Great balance. Really enjoyable brew on tap.
