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.

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...

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.

Deep blond color. Mild aroma of straws and honey. Sweetish malt flavor, correct bitterness, some alcohol presence. Boozy.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - JAN 28, 2010
Acquistata come Magalotti 1845 Bock, ma ratebeer mi rimanda qui, sarà davvero la stessa birra. sull’etichetta schloss eggenberg è riportato, bene un indizio in più. perchè mai allora ci tengono a dire sia di Terni? mah! Versa color oro, con una schiuma poco persistenze, aroma fresco e fruttato, al palato è dolce, quasi vaniglia all’inizo, poi tende all’amaro che permane nel retrogusto. di corpo medio.

Bottle. Nice and tasty. Aroma is floral and spicy. Flavour has average duration, and it’s sweet, with light bitterness. Oily in the palate, and medium body. Yellow colour, with a frothy white head.
