Draft in Lancaster. Poured dark copper in color with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, grain, with some mild floral hops. The taste is sweet with caramel malts, grainy, earthy, with a mild hop character. Typical Lancaster lager flavor.

Tap at the brewpub as the Festbier. Pale amber beer with a lightly flowery aroma. Soft sweetness as well. A little bit dusty and a little bit bland. Straw-like malts and some lingering floral hops. It seems a bit too similar to many of their other lagers.

Tap at brewpub: Decent, somewhat softer, creamier palate than what seems the house style. Otherwise a bit indistinct but pleasant.

Sampler, at Lancaster location, labeled Fest Beer Amber Lager. Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head. The nose is slightly sweet toasted malt with a little bit of caramel and Vienna malt. The flavor is fairly dry toasted malt, pretty clean and crisp, with no flaws. Not really an exciting example of the style, but it is pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. This could use a bit more chewness, but it was OK.

Pint @ Lancaster Harrisburg. Orange copper colored body. Slick, wet palate, basic flavors of cracked barley, sweet caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar and rye, similar smell. Nothing spectacular, somewhat simple, and a little coarse/grainy, which I don’t like so much in Vienna. Tasted really similar to the Spring Bock.
