From Rogue's web site:
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. Dead Guy Ale is available in 22-ounce bottles,
12-ounce 6-pack, and on draft.
