"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."
- Rogue Brewmaster, John Maier
This German Style comes from the use of Oktoberfest 2633 Yeast which is a blend of lager strains designed to produce a rich, malty, complex and full bodied beer that attenuates well while leaving plenty of malt character and mouth feel.
