This is the Festbier limited addition swing top bottle. A nice sweet, bready brew with a noble hop flavour. It’s a 6% beer but you’d never know it.

Bottle. ’Festbier’ Limited Edition with swingtop cap. Pours a light orange yellow color with a quickly diminishing head. Flavor profile is light straw and a bit of breadiness, just a little in the way of sweetness from the malts. Body is light, carbonation is medium. Hop finish is clean and grass like, slightly metallic from the Hallertau. It’s too bad this is like $5 per bottle, I could easily drink this in large quantities. Overall solid.

Bottle, shared with my wife over smokey ham and white bean soup. Medium gold with an airy, bubbly white head that retains beautifully. Crisp, with grains and fresh hay and fruity nuances. Ends with a bitter note. We both liked it.

Pours a nice clean clear dark brown color with a large, frothy even creamy white head. Aroma is malty, grain, toasted, somewhat herbal. More on the sweet and not too bitter with a very slight bite. Enjoyable easy drinker.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Oktoberfest, Munich. Dark golden, clear body, with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma and taste of grains, grass, honey, bread, some herbs. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a lively carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grass, herbs and honey. OK. Slightly above average Märzen beer, nothing special, quite fresh and crisp.

In glas van 1 liter op het oktoberfest. Geel van kleur met een matige schuimkop. Drinkt erg makkelijk weg met een licht hoppige nasmaak.

Until they change the commercial description, this beer *is* sold in the USA. Just bought it down at the local provisioner. Nice latching bottle, good label. Bright blonde beer with a fluffy, white oatmeal head. Sweet cereal aroma. Lifeless, stale oaty-cereal flavor - lightly sweet and next-to-no bittering. Oaty aftertaste with a husky-bitter thing as well. Medium body. Loses carbonation. Meh. Market Square Liquors.
