A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

Aroma - little spicy and grassy. Appearance - pale yellow body with good nucleation. The head is about 1" and white settles slowly. Taste - Saaz hops and some caramel malt, well balanced. Palate - the body is light, carbonation average, and finish appropriately bittered.

SinH4 (2528) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2016
Clear pale yellow color with small white head. Wtf, festbier? Aroma is sweet grains, not too cellar-like. Hints of honey maybe. Taste the same. Not bad per se, but what does this have to do with a Festbier?

King_Alex_II (1181) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Golden color with a solid foam head. The smell is shy and light malty. A very solid carbonation and a little stronger body differentiates it from the Weihenstephaner Helles. The aftertaste is malty.

veceo (1211) - CROATIA - DEC 5, 2015
Clear pale yellow color, average sized white head. Sweetish malty aroma, some vegetable notes, green apples. Taste is malty with unpleasant and cheap hoppy finish. Otherwise empty. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Did I get spoiled bottle or what?
