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.

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!

Bottle in Italia as magalotti 1845. Light blonde to golden colour, small head. Sweety aroma and and a sweetish taste, a bit dry, with hone6y and almonds. A bit alcoholic but not that that bad.

Koelschtrinker (13119) - 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 (2148) - 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 (4352) - 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.

Another Eggenberg bock - and I usually like those. As Magalotti. Pale golden colour. Rich pale malt aroma with light caramel. Good malt character on the palate. Soft malts...I can’t say it’s complex but I like it.3

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2010
As Magalotti 1845 Bock. Bottle shared by lgklotet. Bright gold. Nice color with scant head. Smells oxidized. Toasted corn character in the aroma. Corny flavor is annoying yet the beer still has a good character and solid construction. Can tell it has seen better days.
