12 of 15, 15th anniversary release. RogueToberFest - September, 2004: a traditional OktoberFest style, brewed with Beeston Pilsner Malt, Weyermann light Munich, Vienna, Caramunich, Carahell, and tradition German hops. RogueToberfest was lagered for 8 weeks and is unfiltered. Available only on draft until October 15th, unless the kegs run dry first...but only at the Rogue Ales Public Houses...

Draught (Rogue Alehouse Issaquah) pours amber, biased towards the orange side, fairly clear, small frothy off-white head, light carbonation, with light lacing. Malty & nutty aroma... quite different from most Rogue brews. Slightly sweet and quite malty on the tongue. Great body and mouthfeel. This is perhaps the best Oktoberfest that I have had this year. Finishes smooth with lingering sweet malts. I would have better notes but seeing as this one isn’t bottled I got rather upset. Highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2007 This brew was a great treat. I was kinda pissed that they didn’t release it in bottles, well at least not on the 15th, but it was a damn good brew. Very malty, nutty aroma. Taste starts very sweet and malty with a good toasted quality to it and finishes with a great hop balance to even it out.
