Pours clear amber into a pint glass. White head recedes to form bubbles on the rim. Stale toast aromas. Soft with sweet toffee and candy corn upfront turning to mildly bitter roasted marshmallows in the lasting finish.

Strawberry Banke CBT, Portsmouth, NH. 8 oz taster glass. Aroma of hops and caramel maltiness. Flavor is very nicely balanced malt and hops. Mild hop in the backend with little or no bitterness. This is a traditional example of a fest lager. Well made.

Tap at brewpub: Headless orange, clarity. Mildly sweet and clean Munich malt aroma. Clean light flavor with a hint of caramel. Not hoppy enough.

Bottle from stowehop. Dan you are the man. Pours a red/brown color. Fruity and malty aroma. I almost get a hint of pumpkin bread. Flavor is very malty and sweet with a small dose of hops on the end to offer some balance.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a nice reddish amber in color with a very small off-white head and almost no carbonation. Aroma is malty with some small hops. Flavor is robust maltiness with plenty of roasted malts and just a hint of sweetness. The flavor of the hops is present, but not much of their bitterness. Very nice...

Draught sampler at the brewery. Great festbier. Slightly hazy, copper appearance. Very blanaced aroma and flavour that had an interesting sour note in the finish.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2004
2004 draught. Deep reddish orange color with some lighter browns and gold tinges. No head, but good lacing. Mostly clear, though with some haziness. Aroma is quite faint of caramel, light hops and a touch of nuttiness. Flavor fortunately, is not faint and has plenty of good malt. Not too dry and not too sweet, it adds a good nutty, earthy grain flavor backed up by plenty of hops on the finish. The hops are not bitter at all and add a great spicy, earthy element. Yeast done pretty well, adding a bit of sourness in the background. Medium body and low carbonation. No wateriness.
