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.

Mmm. Good beer. Like the rest of the Rogues, it's hard to beat..............

Pretty golden color in the glass, and a sweet, slightly malty aroma make a nice intro to this brew. I was surprised at the sweet taste as well, since I figured it would be as hoppy as the other Rogue brews I've tried, but it wasn't. It was sweet and smooth, but that's about all I can say...it's a nice brew, but not spectacular. It was a slightly hoppier version of Dundee's Honey Brown.

Had this as 'Dead Guy Ale' and wasn't disappointed. I like the Shakespeare Stout better, but Rogue does offer a wide variety of beers. This one came off smooth, but not wonderfull, no bitterness, but a full-flavored beer on the whole. I'd buy it again, but would rather drink other of their products.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 Fairy nice effort by Rogue. Not an overwhelming aroma but not unpleasent. Looks good in the glass and has a good flavor. Pretty good. Update: Aroma is pleasently hoppy. Flavor reminds me of a bitter. Is this brew a bock??

i detect a bit of hops in the aroma, color is a nice red..i dont derive anything that distinct from this brew...not bad at all though...not one of my favorite styles, so take what you will from my rating.

Rogues' interpretaton of an Octoberfest / Marzen, so not as hoppy as some other Rogue offerings. May not be a perfect example of the style, (it is an ale, after all) but still good

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 Nectarine appearance in this well balanced ale with a feint hop component. This beer is noticeably bigger on the front and lighter on the finish. A solid ale. Re-rated 1-19-08- Was called Rogue White-Crane Bitter - Same nectarine appearance with wonderful of aroma of honey and candi malts and sweet citrusy hops with touch of bubblegum. Medium-bodied with a very dry finish, Malt and hops intermingle, slight hint of crystal/caramel and perhaps a rye crispness on the finish. Nice flavors just very dry.
