SEASONAL RETURN: Rogue Maierfest

Another fall lager for ya!  Rogue Maierfest makes it’s seasonal return from Newport, Oregon.  Maierfest derives it’s name from Rogue brewmaster John Maier.  He writes –

“Over the years, the traditional Oktoberfest style from the major Munich breweries has lost a lot of character and has turned into almost a ‘Helles’ style. Maierfest is dark gold in color with a solid off-white foam stand. It has a rich German malt aroma and a very distinct and complex maltness. The finish is dry.”
