COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eine Bierspezialität der Privatbrauerei Hirt mit jahhundertalter Tradition. Besondere Reintönigkeit in Farbe un Geruch durch überlange Lagerzeit. Im Antrunk extrem süffig und eher lieblich - im Abgang harmonisch zartbitter. Hirter Festbock ist ein völlig naturbelassen gebrautes Bier. Nich pasteurisiert!

Iznogud (1549) - CROATIA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml at Tolkiens House, Zagreb. Pours golden with short lasting white head. Sweet malty, bit fruity and pretty strong alcohol note which is a dealbreaker for me.

0,33l bottle out of Bockbeer Box. Too sweet. Should be better balanced...... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unusally fresh approach for a traditional Bock beer. Cystal clear, fine peony hops,visually impressive crown with limited stability. a good start for Advent.

Cristobal37 (393) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - NOV 25, 2013
After sampling a few good Austrian bocks this one is the weakest, blandest, most forgettable of the bunch. I’ve heard good things about Hirter, but their festbock is flat, empty, and abandons your palate faster than a bat outta hell. Pass!
