COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mad King’s Fest - ABV 5.5% The Mad King Fest Beer aroma and taste are exactly in line with each other. Very straightforward bready and biscuity with a mild hop presence that makes it so drinkable. This is the German way. This Festbier is a very Bavarian-specific style of the region’s seasonal offering. While it may be reminiscent of a Helles (Lager) style in representation, it is stronger. It is very unique, refreshing, well-made, and wholly enjoyable.

Swing-top: Clear, dirty gold with a short, soapy head... Old grain malt aroma. Sweet grain malt, bready flavor. Slightly stale, a bit off.... Disappointing.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Sweet malts, bready yeasty notes, and light earthy notes. Not bad.

500ml flip top bottle. Hazy orange-tan body, thin white head. Butterscotch tinged aroma. Tastes a little old, faded. Sort of has a nice, cleanish body..but the flavors aren’t that great...funky fruity buttery tones that make it seem off...or maybe just cheap malt? Either way, not one I’d revisit unless I was in Germany.

$3.49 50cl swing-top bottle pours a clear golden color with small white head, a few rising bubbles and no lacing. Aroma is full of grainy, bready malts with some fruits. Taste is slightly bitter with some hops present in the finish - along with a slight metallic taste. Body is thin to medium without much carbonation. (This may have been an old bottle). Drinkable, but slightly disappointing. The packaging is the best part.

I guess it is a Maerzen. There isn’t much info on it anywhere. 500ml returnable swing-top. I think it might have been brewed last year but haven’t seen it until now. The smell is fruity with doughy notes. Slight toastiness. Some diacetyl. It isn’t 100% all there but decent. The flavor is also quite fruity. It is rich in malty in the taste with a nice sweetness and some dough. The hops come through in the flavor with some low bitterness but a nice flavor. Nice mineral water body with some slight metallicness. The flavor is pretty good on this one, not too bad.
