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.

Koelschtrinker (11753) - 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 (2125) - 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 (3922) - 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.

Bottle of Magalotti in Lago Garda, Italy. Quite enjoyed this. Nice gold body with medium head. Corny nose. Nice taste of malts, caramel and toffee. A bit watery but fine in consistence.

Oakes (13136) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2010
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

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.

armando629 (2438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 19, 2010
1 liter fliptop bottle, bought in a Billa, Austria.
Poured clear golden with a nice white head that diminishes slowly to a lacing one. Aroma of malt and sourish yeast, some vanilla, minimal fruity character. Medium bodied one with an average lager character of sourish yeasts, malt, some harsh hop. Minimal fruity taste of peach and rasins, sweet vanilla. Neutral lager aftertaste. I expected more.

Ebbene si,ci sono ricascato...maledetta la mia curiosità,dovevo immaginarlo già dal nome(Magalotti)che sembra quello del farmacista del mitico Febbre Da Cavallo(Magalini) che sarei andato incontro a qualcosa di poco piacevole.Non penso che la bottiglia presa alla PAM fosse mal conservata però so che appena stappata l’aroma ricordava quello di verdura andata a male,ho tentato l’assaggio e in bocca l’impressione è stata la medesima dopo di che il tutto è terminato nel lavandino del bagno(quello della cucina non meritava l’affronto). Ora,prima di riprovarla dovrò smaltire aroma e sapore di questa esperienza.Imbevibile ma forse aveva qualche problema...

hawthorne00 (2662) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle (labeled Birra Magalotti 1845 Bock). Light orange with a dense white head. Quite high bead. Light malt aroma with some oranges. Tastes sweet and rather metallic at first. Finishes dry and fairly bitter. Holds the alcohol very well. There’s real complexity hiding there too - earthy stickiness. Much better than the first few sips suggest.
