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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a mildly cloudy copper/amber with an orange hue and a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that had decent retention and good lacing. The aroma was of toasted caramel malts, citrus hops and a biscuit yeast with strong citrus, toffee and caramel notes. The taste was sweetly bitter with a hint of caramel in the beginning then progressed into much bitterer flavor with a nice dose of citrus at the end, I am guessing a little lemon and grapefruit. The flavor stuck around long enough to let one enjoy the nice citrusy hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel had a smooth creamy texture and a medium body with a prickly carbonation. Overall a super refreshing ale that had a nice blending of malts, hops and citrus. And one that is most definitely worth drinking again.

coachd (701) - Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Aroma is malty like an Oktoberfest. Very light crimson color with an off white head. Tastes slightly sweet with a bite that is a mix between hops and orange rind. Good slick palate. Maibock is not my favorite style but this is one of the better representations I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At BKL - The beer is rather sweetish, malty, full body, ripe mandarina, boozy finish. There are better Bcke in the world.

ForlornHope (457) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours amber in colour with a thin head and good lacing. Pleasant aroma: malty, nutty and some leafy hop. Slight sweetness leads to a strong bitterness. Creamy, smooth and nutty with fruit and peppery hop. A slight alcoholic glow, dry bitter finish.

budedou (875) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2017
Pours a slightly opaque red. Mild, fruity aroma. Fairly heavy carbonation. Taste has peachy undertones with hint of herbs and roasted malt. This doesn?t really taste that much like an ale, which is probably why I like it all right.

LeoN_ (36) - Freiburg, Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Leichte Trbung. Kupferfarbe, weisser Schaum, bildet sich nur sehr wenig. Gutes Aroma, Orangen und Grser. Bocktypisch deutliche Malznoten: Honig und Karamell. Milder Antrunk, sehr sffiger Krper. Gute Mitten, ssse Noten, feine Malznoten. Abgang krftig, typisch Bock, leichte Sure am Gaumen. Geil!

Vestergaard (2000) - 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 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.
