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.

Leighton (20596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2009
A nicely complex ale. Poured a reddish gold with a foamy head, which faded in minutes. Smelled of sweet malts. The taste was dynamic, ringing with traces of honey, molasses, and bread. Very smooth with a mildly yeasty afteraste. I enjoyed drinking this beer very much.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2005
Beautiful dark amber color. Ordinary aroma, with a hint of hop. The caramel dominates this beer, with some hidden quite good hopping.

harrisoni (18018) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
650ml bottle from Morrisons. Dark orange clear beer with lasting beige head. Intense US hop nose with hints of chocolate limes. When I say hints I mean completely unsubtle flavours. Really nice in mouth, got good strong mouthfeel with malts and alcohol coming through. Then smooth choc lime finish with drying intense hoppiness. Superb with good lasting flavours

TBone (17070) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Nut brown color, small off-white head. Bready malty nose. Malty, slightly citric hoppy, balanced but mild mouthfeel. Some acidity in the aftertaste. Quite boring. Interestring to have an ale which is a bock. Far from maibock.
