COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lammsbräu-Winterfestbier ist ein speziell zu Weihnachten gebrautes, bernsteinfarbenes Bier. Vollmundig, mild, süffig und sehr würzig im Geschmack. Stärker eingebraut und mit weniger Hopfen als ein Pils, hat es auch weniger Bitterstoffe.

500ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-brown body. Creamy, steady off-white head. Not so impressive caramel aroma. A real easy going beer...I certainly wouldn’t designated this as a Marzen, maybe just as much a Heller Bock or somewhere between. A touch of vanilla, cream. Unique and tasty.

The aroma is is malty with mixed grains and hay like hops. The appearance is watered down ginger ale with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a mixed grain finish. The palate is average. Overall nothing special about it.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2014
New Leaf Market. 500 mL europint, sad sack snowman on the label. Almost clear maple gold; fluffy, short white head. Sweet, bocky-malty aroma with some dark syrup. Sweetish, modestly bittered, rather bland. Watery mouthfeel, loses effervescence. Starchy, straw finish with some dark syrup tones. This came off as dilute marzen or bock. Disappointing.

obguthr (3665) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Honey and hazelnut nose. Cloudy amber, thick head, minimal lacing. Pecan with honey underneath. Tasty and sessionable.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 22, 2014
Found it with the alias and was a nice German one. Smooth and nice in aroma. Soft and easy to drink too.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a slightish white head. Nose is malty and slightly sweet with a hint of caramel in there. Taste is much the same, and is very light and smooth.

Patrickctenchi (3468) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle: Bubbly, cloudy brown-orange with a small, off-white head. Caramel, dry grass/hay scent. Taste is slightly dusty, creamy caramel.... stale bread notes. OK.

Geiserich (3306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 26, 2003
Good head with nice lace and off-white color. Color is light amber to orange. Malty and light smoky nose. Taste is light sweet and malty, burned malt notes and some acid. Light bitter aftertaste with hope notes. Better than other "Weihnachtsbeers".

TimE (3108) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2007
This is for the Winter Festbier, which I assume is the same beer. Light amber color, cracked wheat, toasted malt nose with bit of wininess and chocolate. Mouth is smooth and malty with lots of toasted notes. Nice

Paid $3.99 for a 500ml bottle 5.1% @ Nikki’s Liquors, Providence, R.I. Lager glass shows a golden /orange color with thin soapy head that laces. Nose is sweet grain and caramel malt. Toasted cereal and grain flavors with a creamy texture. Nice balance between bitter and sweet. Really easy to drink. Nothing complex yet I wonder why the ratings aren’t a bit higher. Sometimes it’s hard to find fresh imports, maybe that’s the reason. I enjoyed this brew.
