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.

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.

One of the better Rogue beers. Nice aroma. Terrific finish. Haven't had a Rogue beer yet that I haven't enjoyed. Rogue is at the top of my list!

I agree with Kilgore415: it looks like a cool beer, it smells allright, but then the taste is strange and unrewarding. :( Don't let this beer turn you off to Rogue, though, their Brutal Bitter is wonderful!

Looks better than it actually is. A jumble of tastes, none of which are that good.

Deep golden orange coloured ale. Dead Guy Ale doesn't seem to be much like a Bock. Striking grassy flavours and a floral aroma highlighted this brew by Rogue. The finish provided a pleasent bitter.

didn't seem like a bock - tasted more like a nut brown. malty, too sweet at the finish. (had it under the DeadGuyAle moniker on 1/28/2002)
