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.

Bottle. Nice dark reddish-orange color. Good tasting beer, strong bitter hoppy aftertaste. Good fizz and overall a good beer. Recommened.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 (Re-rating) Draught. Pours a kind of cloudy brown with very thin white head. The aroma is toffee with hints of butterscotch (which is a little offputting because of memories of a raunchy Dead Guy Ale I had recently that tasted like buttermilk). Flavor is some malt, some toffee, and some hops. They dont seem to be particularly well-balanced. The beer as a whole lacks some harmony. I used to drink Dead Guy a lot, then went quite some time without it, and seem to remember it being better. Perhaps my tastes have changed.

Almost no head. Honey color. Honey sweetness. Deep flavor with strong wheat bitterness balanced with malt sweetness.

nice color and aroma on this maibock, and as others have mentioned, clearly grainy taste. one of my regular purchases.

pinkzambia (1921) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottle: Cloudy copper color witha fizzy, off-white head and sticky lacing. It has wonderful aromas of wheat, brown sugar and syrup. The taste is different than you would expect having taken in the aromaa. It is marked by a higher alcohol flavor with lots of carbonation that isnt my favorite combo, but I can deal with it. Another taste is a a strong, bitter wheat. The aftertaste is great which beckons the beer enthusiast to take another gulp. I also noticed that towards the end, some of the flavors started to resemble a weaker version of a barley wine. This is another great example of Rogues repertoire.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2006 Bottle. Golden color. Sweet, fruity aroma. Fruity notes, has an ale character, nice full taste, very well-balanced. What everyday beer should taste like.

notwoohoo (109) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2005
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).

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 29, 2005
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.
