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.

Palme (3163) - 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, bought @ IperSimply, Peschiera. As Magalotti 1845 Bionda.
Clear golden with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma has malts, apples, vinious, a touch of cellar. Low carbonation, oily and fat mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of metal, sweet malts, maize, vinious, sticky sweetness. Not good.

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!

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Süßer Antrunk, unnnausgereift klebrig wirkend. Wenig herb werdend, alkoholisch-scharf im Hintergrund. Mit der Zeit wird das Bier etwas erträglicher, es bleibt aber sehr penetrant klebrig-künstlich und wenig süffig. Ein gewöhnungsbedürftiger Bock... 9/6/5/6/7/5

Dorqui (2083) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 10, 2010
Bottled 0,33L. BIRRA MAGALOTTI BOCK 1845. Intense golden color, very good bubbly aspect. Modest resistance head duration. Much gaunt aroma, realy inconsistant. Good taste with notes of "aged honey", mellow, clear aged grapes, sweet caramel final.

mkel07 (3031) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2010
330ml bottle. Clean, clear amber with a deep white ehad that sits proudly . Hard to detect distinguishable aromas, mild and almost non-existent.. Strong medicinal perfume flavour that leaves an impression on the palate. Okay without being exceptional.
