JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle. Bright red-tinted gold, with some wispy foam seeping up out of full body and low carbonation. Sweeitsh, nutty-malt smell edged with caramel and hint of zest. Rich, nutty, malty sweetness met by a pretty firm and welcome bitterness, some orange-fruit flavor in there too. Really a lovely, full-flavored, bittersweet lagerbier.

TAR (2687) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Draft at keller: Pleasant aroma of lemony Spalter, toasted hay, flowers, and a touch of mineral. Soft and snug carbonation. Initially snappy with light minerals coupled with a crisply defined punch of nutty toffee-kissed Munich malt fused with haylike pils. Vague kiss of woody Spalt pokes through, as does a hint of licorice. Fruity esters offer dense slickness while the minerals and light tastiness delicately scratch at the tongue. Quiet lemony oiliness accentuates the nicely layered malt. Well-integrated maltcentric finish features toasted bread and a bouncy fusion of pecan and honeyed hay. Perhaps a bit straightforward, but it’s mostly clean and exhibits proper balance.

FatPhil (14126) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2015
Tap (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Oktoberfest 2015)
Latvian aroma, some sweetish milkiness, probably some lactobacillus starting to wake up. Gold, brief head. Watery palate, cold, biting carbonation. Pleasant woodiness, but pretty boring. Hints of diacetyl. Meh, I’m not a lagerboy and can’t get excited by this.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - APR 24, 2015
I've been at brewery and the fest bier offered to me was golden color with a nice white head that kept a nice lacing for while. Aroma is sweet malt. Flavor is like aroma, more sweetness and light bitterness. Low carbonation with light to medium body and light bitter finish. Good one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

Erzengel (7928) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Rated as "Anna-Festbier". Die Farbe ist Dunkelgold mit angenehm süßlicher Note. Der Hauptteil wird etwas herber, dabei angenehm amalzig mit ganz leicht herb. Der Nachgeschmack ist langanhaltend, malzig-süßlich mit leicht herber Note.
→ Nettes Festbier, aber nichts Besonderes! Danke an wastl! 8/11/9/8

3fourths (9149) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2014 November 2013, bottle: Highly effervescent pour, clear honey gold color with a fine white head which doesn’t seem to want to stick around. Bananas, mineral water / calcium carbonate, apples, solvent, drywall and lactose aroma. Obvious infection. Sweet, light bodied, DMS-heavy, pasty. Cosmetics and foul fruit and cinder block dust. Bad shape for a fresh bottle.
4/3/4/2/10, 2.4

August 2014, draft at Eichhorn @ Kellerwald, Forchheim as Annafestbier.
Gold and clear. Little metallic / stoneware flavor. Sweet clean pilsner malt profile. Quenching acid, minimal hop profile decent, overall balanced between sweet and hoppy / bitter. Clean, simple.Long bitter herb-lemon finish, but hop profile in the nose is more subtle.
7/3/7/4/13, 3.4
