"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 so popular with consumers and especially Grateful Dead fans, that we made it the label for our Maierbock ale. Even though the association with the Grateful Dead band is pure coincidence, we have gratefully dedicated Dead Guy Ale to the Rogue in each of us. In the style of a German Maibock, using our proprietary Pacman ale yeast. Deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor." —brewer
"Appearance: Deep and lightly hazy amber honey in colour with a wispy white lace.

"Smell: Sweetness coming from malt and hops, faint hint of exotic or star fruit?

"Taste: Smooth with a medium body, the smoothness from the carbonation hold together the malty mouth feel very well. Good dose of toasted malts, perhaps some Munich? A little sweetness comes forth also though is quickly cut by an evening hop character of both bitterness and an underlying oily flavour. The finish is pleasant and is reminiscent of crust off of some homemade whole grain bread.

"Notes: Delicious to say the all-around prize ale brewed here, crafted very well. Great use of hops and malt to come up with a very drinkable brew...a quaffer's delight." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
