bottle, picked up rather oddly at prague alefest 2012. murky copper with a splotchy head; fizzy, some bready malts, caramel and a tinny bitter finish - a standard combination but executed with finesse

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Comes as Festbier. Thank you Masn/G2B.dk! It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a weak head. The aroma has notes of malt, citrus and a light sourness. The flavour is rather citrussy with notes of malt, apple and a light sweetness. Not too much "Fest" in this one :)

Bottle (label reading Festbier) - Clear light amber body, not lasting yellowish head; Quite simple malty sugary honey nose; Light thin body, simple bitter sweet; Some length in a malty bitter finish, simple honey sweet sugary flower aroma. Not really interesting and no really well composed.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Red, bit foxy beer, slight haze, with about no head left. Very strange nose, plywood, berries extract, medicinal. Awful, in fact. Very fast disappearing, short sweetish-sourish-fruity flavour. End a bit burning, but generally very lame. Slick, not even medium bodied. A bit old? It’s still before its given BBD. Anyway, not something I’d finish. All the same, thanks, Joss!
