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.

Amber in color with a lasting white head. Sweet smelling. Taste is sweet malty and grassy. I tasted too young to me.

Pours copper with abig white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy with notes of malt. Flavor is hoppy with a bit of bite at the end. A very above average brew, one that you could have over and over.

I like the look of this reddish/coppery beer wearing a cap of wacky white. Yeasty and malty and fruity on the nose, it is initially perhaps a little sweeter than expected or desired. However it mellows nicely and has a balanced hoppiness to end off. Sometimes Rogue leaves you a little more bitter but this was not overpowering at all. Decent.

The label on this beer drew me to try it. I like the orange amber color. The head fizzles out quickly and doesn't leave much lace. The aroma is malty and sweet. It has a nice sweet taste as well, but almost too sweet. Overall, a pretty good beer worthy of any dead guy.

Quickly disappearing head. Very little lacing. Fresh bread aroma. Flavor is good but nothing notable. I haven't had many Bocks but this seems like an average ale to me.

This is a bock? I was expecting much darker and much more complexity in the flavor. This beer was pretty good, but it's totally forgettable. Rogue has way better beers to offer than this one.

This is a Maibock: It's not an Amber, it's not a Pale Ale. Keep that in mind when you review it. Pours a dark amber with a decent off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Smells of malt sweetness with a touch of hops, but it's more complex than that. Taste is like a mix between an Amber and a Bock. Lots of caramel malt but offset with a generous amount of hops. I wish I had the 22oz instead of the 12oz bottle because the bigger ones list the ingredients. I'm quite certain that it has neither Cascade or Centenial hops because while the hop taste is definately present, it's subdued. The alcohol content is noticable but only barely. Mouthfeel is very full, creamy yet crisp. Drinkability is certainly great, but beware of the alcohol content.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 My wife loves this beer but there is an off perfumey element that I find a bit unpleasant. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle with a very cool label this beer pours amber-orange color with minimal head. The beer is very cloudy. There is a mild sweet scent. The taste is sweet and nutty with a mealy texture. The nut taste lingers. There is a bitter sourness that lies beneath the surface flavors of this beer. I can not readily identify what it is but it turns me off.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2004 Hazy amber with a medium diminishing white head. Lightly floral aroma of honey, caramel, cookie, and toasted bread. Medium watery, very slightly syrupy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet flavor of honey, caramel, and bread with hints of citrus and pine. Finishes moderately bitter. Decent.
