COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional bock-beer-speciality of Castle Eggenberg. This beer is brewed only seasonally and therefore available during Christmas and Easter holidays. Careful and slow fermentation and maturation make Festbock a desired beer not only in Austria but also in Italy, where it is exported in 30 lt. kegs.

33 cl bottle as Magalotti 1845 Doppio Malto, 7.1%. Dark yellow color, clear, unstable white head. Malts on the nose. Aroma has a nice amount of pale malts, very bready, sugar, candy orange, banana. Thin hop profile, alcohol can be noticed. Taste is initially sweet, then slightly bitter and finally sweet again. Tart mouthfeel, thick oily texture, dense, full bodied, soft carbonation. Finish is sticky and somewhat spiced. Heavy one, reminds me of some weizen-bocks.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and cereal grains. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not a very good bock at all and not recommended.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2012
0.33l bottle. This is a crystal clear pale golden one with a medium sized light bubbly white head. It smells light sweet with some corn, also I get tones of fruity zesty melon and that’s just about that. Not extreme, not exciting, not bad either, just a bit dull. In the flavor this has some clear alcohol touches. Watery ans thin melon dominates, pale malty flavor and traces of corn and irony copper. No clear off flavors, but this is not one I will remember for a long time. 22.06.2012

Bottle in Genoa purchased from Enoteca Squillari as ’Birra Magalotti 1845 Doppio Malto Bionda’. Clear gold beer, good white head. Light palate, a little dry. Sweet pale malt, almost sugary sweet. Creamy as well. Some buried marmaladey citrus prevents stepping over the line to ’sicklyville’. Dry finish. Not terrible!
