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.

AndreasP (324) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Sweet, almost like honey, with rich malt and some mildewy-spicey notes that keeps it from being a sugary pleaser. Not much bitterness to add further in the counter-balance.

wombat23 (2137) - Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2017
12 oz. can. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Malt, caramel, dark bread, grassy notes for the aroma and flavors. Finish trends towards maltiness and mild bitterness. Not bad but not as good as I remember.

Hoprider (778) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2017
Pours a light brown colour, fairly large fluffy head. Aroma has soft dough, light malty notes, a very soft hoppy character. Taste is middle of the road malty, light ale. Nothing too bold here. Easy drinking, light malty brew with a soft to medium mouthfeel and a pleasant bready aftertaste.
