COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of light citrus and bread. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that ringed and laced. More of a fruit aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied with very mild, nigh creamy, carbonation. It’s lightly sweet, a bit fruity, and there’s a very little bitter that builds over time. The finish is more dry than sweet, it’s got some light fruit, and a bit of bitter. Floral hop? Not your typical lager. Very tasty indeed.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours pale straw with a two-finger white head. Grainy aroma with a touch of breadiness and a respectable dose of German hops. Flavor is more of the same. Those hops come in honey-sweet and earthy. No, it’s no Marzen, but this is a great, drinkable, pilsener-ish beer for all sorts of fests.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Slightly hazy gold colored body with an egg shell white head. This is easily the lightest Ofest style brew I have ever seen. The aroma has old fall leaves and some toffee. The mouthfeel is creamy and thick. The taste has notes of toffee and black tea. There is also a little bit of bitter bread crust in the finish. A decent brew, but could use a little more malt balance.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2007
This poured to a pale yellow with thin white head and a little lacing. Aroma is a mix of grassy hops and slight skunky grain. Mouthfeel from this somewhat carbonated beer is slightly tingly, but this moves right into a flavor of grass and grain. Finish is short, stale and a littel skunky. Not one of Weihenstephaner’s best by any means.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Straw color with a soft white head. Decent lace. Pale malt and somewhat grassy/herbal hops. Smells like a fairly typical euro lager. Quite lively in feel. Pale and toasty malts abound. Quite heavily hopped with a green hop and herbal quality in the middle. Soft wintergreen and malt follow in the finish and linger. Smooth and drinkable. A bit sharper than most fest brews, but very clean.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Clear yellow body with a light white head. Sweet malty aroma with some german hops. Sweet german hop flavor with a light malt background.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Ridiculously huge and sort of impressively white frothy head atop a clear yellow body. Aroma was mildly grainy and malty with a bit of sweetness. The flavor was much more intense than the aroma, with a lot of the sweet grainy flavors. Very clean and super easy to drink. I can imagine having a huge stein of this and getting good and drunk. Not the greatest brew really, but still pretty solid for what it is. Light and easy, good for those who want to go the distance.

truebluehes (155) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle. Yellow brew with small head that disappears quickly. Aroma is very faint, but what’s there is sweet and dusty. Flavor is clean and very grainy. Glorified bud light of sort.
