A nice straight forward festbier that is clean and malty. Well made and enjoyable.

Unpastuerized half-liter bottle from the brewery, 12/06. Pours a brilliant dark copper with nice carbonation but just a thin coverage and little ring of an off-white head. Pleasant subtle aroma of lightly toasted malts which, with a touch of noble hops, imparts a lightly fruity (cherry) aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some nice toasty notes coming through. Pretty clean with just a little bitterness upfront and a smooth, balanced, although somewhat dull finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation, with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid German-sytle Fest and one of the better Weeping Radish offerings.

Bottle. Reddish-orange pour. Small white head. Nose is malty and yeasty with some berry notes. Fair amount of fruit in the nose. Taste is also fruity and malty. Light spicy hops, berries, caramel and sweet malts. Yeast notes present themselves here too. Iíve started thinking that Weeping Radish beers are a lot like Legend, in the sense that they may have their own "house flavor" due to the yeast they use. It may be off-putting to some. Body is light-medium with very soft carbonation. Sort of slick and easy drinking. Ends with more malts, berry flavors and yeast with some caramel. Different but tasty!

What is a Festbier anyway? It is certainly not an Octoberfest nor a Marzen or Vienna Style, Itís just a Lager, nothing really special about it. Nice malty aroma with a slight bitter dryness too it. Not as smooth as some other good lagers.

Bottle, OBX, NC. Amber lager - good oily copper color, foamy white head initially, disappers quickly, solid mellow taste, slightly sweet malt and tracing of hops followed by a fairly crisp finish. Pretty darn good.

Iím surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did, given how bitter it is. This beer has a fairly sweet caramel malt, and an uncomplicated flavor profile with a touch of medicinal hops thatís oddly enjoyable. I so rarely have Viennas, but they DO indeed have a distinct flavor. Though I canít put it into words, that flavor is certainly present in this Weeping Radish brew. Very nice.

OldGrowth (2590) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Pint @ Manteo location. Good aroma, sweet, yeasty, toffee, lite cherry. Clean orangy brown color, good head that slowly faded to nothing. Sweet flavor, kind of roasty, but like aroma, though it was a notch down from the aroma. Lite body, thin creamy mouthfeel, clean sweet finish. Good, but nothing to excite. Very traditional Vienna.

I had this one on the outer banks. It is full bodied and pours a nice amber. It is very drinkable and smooth. Nice taste. I would certainly have it again.

Bottle Pours a clear amber with a decent of white head. The heads has average lasting. Lacing is okay. Aroma was subtle with hints of floral hops and spices, Had a good carbonation. The flavor was drinkable but not very deep. Has a good mouthfeel. The texture is watery. Has an okay finish with a easy aftertaste. Refreshing and drinkable but not real memorable.
