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!

cloudy pale pour with a large bit of carbonation. Almost zero head on this beer and tastes a bit like malted barley. Aroma is light but noticeable with a bit of a hoppy smell.

2009-01-30. Crisp dark yellow body is bubbly, modest white head fades. Aroma is mild, sweet pale malts, light grassy hops. 6+ Flavour is similar, modest bitterness throughout, light grassy hops, muted pale malt underpinnings. Average palate. Serviceable, overall impression is on the mild side. Okay. Bottle from Abbot Ale House, Cork

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle. Light gold body with a small, fizzy white head, mostly diminishing. The aroma is grassy with notes of toasted and raw grain, bread, flowers, honey. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean, moderately sweetened with a crisp finish. Well made.

Not bad. his beer starts out with a bitter (not hoppy) taste followed by a smooth, mahogany finish. Not much else.

MeadMe (1611) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2009
A: Pours a light golden yellow color with a medium head. S: No real malt aroma. A bit of hops noted with a bit of citrus. T: Yeah, it’s no Oktoberfest brew. More hop than malt. Citrus is noted above and beyond all else. There is a bit of malt sweetness in the background but not up front where I want it should be. M: Medium bodied and very sparkling for a fest brew.

kevd193213 (989) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Bottle. Light copper pour with a nice fizzy white. Aroma of malt and spices. Nice even taste of malt, spices and slight sharp taste. Even finish.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Clear pale yellow, thick frothy white head. Aroma- apple, grain pear. Taste is mild sweetness more like a crappy pale lager though. What the hell kind of a festbier is this? is it super traditional because it’s unlike other German Festbier’s. Medium light body, this beer is crisp clean and refreshing but again i’m not so sure it’s a good Festbier or Marzen becasue it lacks that biscuity doughy malt.

topherh (1924) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma is sweet malt, a bit of toast and hops. Flavor is sweet and malty. Decent, but really a pretty boring beer.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle served in dimpled mug. Frothy foam tops a pale yellow body. Pretty, sweet, wheat nose. Sweet light-medium bodied palate. Some sticky, light bitterness on the finish. The "Fest" isnt exactly like standard domestic Christmas fare, but it isn’t a bad brew nonetheless.
