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!

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2006
A yellow beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with a dusty hop note, on a very clean malty back ground. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of grain, leading to a dry hoppy and rather bitter end. The hops sticks around on the palate. A very clean beer, that can be drunk in large quantities.

It’s an oktoberfest/märzen. Golden color, creamy white head. Sweet malty and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Malty in the finish, some fruity hops with trefoil and grass. Clean but not very interesting.
