Clear deep golden colour with solid head. Grainy aroma with a touch of grassy hops. Bit mushy malt backbone, and seemingly low on the Münich malt but nevertheless a pretty solid Festbier without flaws.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, from the brewery) Clear, deep golden to light-amber colour with a medium-sized foamy white head with nice lace. Moderately sweet malty, slightly toasted aroma with notes of citrus and a touch of herbal hops. Initially sweet and toast-malty taste with a honeyish fruitiness; medium-dry malty, slightly bitter and hoppy finish. Once again I prefer the counterpart brewed by Hummel.
