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.

I was suprised by the amount of grainyness to this beer. The yeast leaves a slight bit of esters, so it feels more like an ale than a lager (and in fact, PacMan is an ale yeast iirc).

Draught. Brown hazy color with thin off white head. Smells of malt and alcohol. Caramel and malt are prominent flavors with a hint of alcohol. Not very bitter for a Rogue product. Moderate carbonation. No bad, not great.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 bottle. Aroma is yeasts, floral spice. Flavor is hearty malts, spice, light fruits, and a good bitter finish.

This ones not the greatest of Rogues, but it still honors the name. Be aware that the last few sips from the bottle have a strong kick that kinda takes ya back to that awkward moment when you had that HUGE secret that you had to tell someone but couldnt, or that moment waiting for someone to get out of the bathroom (as you do the piss dance, legs squeezed together, about ready to make a mess), or the first time you tell that girl that you love her and she says "thats nice"- its kinda like that. Overall, I liked it more than the average supermarket beer, but dont get too excited just because it says Rogue.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep hazy amb er-orange with a big foamy straw-coloured head. Aroma is surprisingly mild, orange juice, fresh roast malt, slight cascade hops, a bit spicy and sour. Taste is very juicy (orange, apricot, pineapple), slightly sour malt, decent amount of fresh hops, but by Rogue standards this is hop-mild - very fruity and floral, quick diminish, decent bitter/sweet balance. Mouthfeel is a bit chewy and lively, very slightly acidic. Very easy to drink - not a home run, but definitely a stand-up double.

Clear amber in colour but head fades to nil in about a minute. Nice nose of roast malt, which appears again on the palate, but this time with a big blast of citrus hops. A big complex beer that has a good long satisfying finish. Morrison.

This is a great beer. I drank 3 of them within an hour at a restaurant in Lincoln Beach, Oregon. It has a full bold flavor, not watered-down. This is a beer to enjoy, not just get drunk on. It went well with the fish dinner I was eating and I normally dont like to eat while I am drinking beer.

Off the tap, starts dusty malty smell that tickles the back of the throat. It is best served slightly below room temperature. Opens with a nutty start finishes with a sweet malt flavor. Very enjoyable with spicy food. Finishes like it starts. A very well rounded beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 Another great Rogue beer. Flavorful and balanced. A beer drinkers beer. Nothing fancy, just a great beer start to finish.
