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.

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thin ring of white head and no lace as it falls down. The aroma is really malty and sweet. There is a strong caramel going on, but its very bland and plain. The flavor is much of the same. Its god a light caramel sweetness and a lingering bitterness from the hops. There is not a lot going on, and its kind of a bummer. The mouth feel is a little light with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet caramel and bitter hop on the back end. I dont know how I feel about it.

Can shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is fruity, caramel, slight metallic, toffee, it smells pretty good. Appearance is amber, off white head, mostly hazy. Taste is slightly caramel, slightly malty bitter, toasted, slightly fruity, really light flavors all around. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, toasted caramel aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty boring flavor-wise.

On the the occasion I am having a finicky palate this is my go to beer. Sure Ill switch things up but this is always a good beer to get things started. Maybe its just the kid in me but sometimes I like the sweet, carmel malty taste vs the bitter taste of pine sap.
