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.

[bottle] Spicy hops aroma with some hay and melanoidins. Clear copper under a rocky, lacy, off-white head. Spicy melanoidiny caramel flavour with some walnuts and plenty of hay. Well balances sweet and bitter character, though a bit weak, letting through some ethanol. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, slight bitter hay finish.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2012
#732 Leicht kupferfarben; der Schaum ist schnell verschwunden. Das Aroma ist verhalten würzig. Der Antrunk ist sehr dünn geraten. Geschmacklich leider auch enttäuschend: Leicht lieblich-malzig, etwas röstig, das wars schon. Im Abgang etwas herber werdend. Trinkbar, aber für ein "Winterfestbier" ein Reinfall. Weihnachten ist abgesagt! Test vom 19.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,9,9,10,9 - 8,95

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.

Embrouille (2806) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2009
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of pivnizub. It pours a beautiful clear amber beer with a decent head. Sweet diacetyl malt accented nose with hints of boiled milk, papaya and candy sugar- that’s how I would put it. Malt accented taste. I don’t like the commercial description- at least accurate but not the most flattering I could think of- less of something I like in a pils without being appropriate to the style doesn’t make the beer more interesting or have character in a greater extent. Pretty lacework. Sweetish. Very drinkable. Papaya sneaking in. Tricky to rate this beer actually. Faintly sourish. I could just do with a lot more hops. Overall impression: Sweet, low bitterness, very drinkable, low carbonation, malt accentuated, fruity (papaya), buttery. Thanks a lot pivnizub!

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Das Bier schmkeckt von Anfang an süßlich und röstmalzern, was sich bis in den Nachgeschmack fortsetzt. Im Mittelteil spielen dann vor allem getreidige Aromen eine Rolle, sie spielen sich harmonisch ein. Der Nachgeschmack wirkt leider nicht so harmonisch, das getreigie Aroma schwingt in einen bitteren Ton um, das röstmalzige Aroma verschwindet vorrübergehend von der Bildfläche, kehrt dann aber doch noch mal zum Finish zurück. Nichts besonderes! Test vom 29.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,8,7,12,9 - 8,80

Bottle, bought @ CITTI, Flensburg.
Completely clear darkish golden, lovely, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, some sugars, light caramel. Medium carbonation, fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has heavy malty sweetness, light biscuity notes, some pepper, soft brewing cereal. Fine, but not fantastic.

Pours orangish amber, small off-white head. Slightly hazy. Aroma is honey and raisins. Rather sweet. Finish is kind of astringent. Medium body.
