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.

Still trying to wrap my mouth around this one. I had it on tap. Hazy amber color with a light white head. At first taste, its a good sweet beer, but then the hops come in and there are some citrus undertones. Surprisingly good.

Vestergaard (1910) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2017
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear orangy amber with a small off white head. Aroma has lots of heavy, sticky malts, caramel, banana, sweet overripe fruits. Taste is very very sweet, heavy malty and with a tiny bitterness that not even is close to balance this beer. Very intense for the 6,5%, but other than that i havent got a whole lot of good things to say..

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Leichte Trbung. Kupferfarbe, weisser Schaum, bildet sich nur sehr wenig. Gutes Aroma, Orangen und Grser. Milder Antrunk, sehr sffiger Krper. Gute Mitten, ssse Noten, feine Malznoten. Abgang krftig, typisch Bock, leichte Sure am Gaumen. Geil!

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Non ho capito bene lo stile della birra ma credo sia tipo bock. Il malto per poco evidente, in particolare il caramello non l?ho percepito per nulla. Il luppolo non si sente per nulla come aroma ma abbastanza come amaro, aiutando la bevuta. In generale non mi piaciuta particolarmente.

lokis333 (441) - Birai, LITHUANIA - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2017 Clead deep peach golden color with small tan foam. Aromas of tropical fruit type hops, youghurt and peach and floral notes. Palate, medium to full body with biting bitter texture leaving short dry finish. Taste, lighty bitter sweet of tropical fruits, more like not amazing IPA. Overall, okay beer, reminds more of IPA, quite hoppy still light though.
