Aromatic, sweet malty, slightly roasted aroma with light notes of caramel, liquorice and a distinctive spicy herbal hoppy touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Toast-malty base with roasted notes and caramel plus a herbal touch from behind. Medium-dry, slightly sweet malty and moderately bitter, herbal hoppy finish. Very quaffable and pretty well-balanced Festbier.
