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!

TBone (14897) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2005
Draugh ("Weihenstephaner Festbier")
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.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Bottle, 5.8% at KØ07. Bready aroma. Pale yellow colour, very small white head. The flavour is quite thin, some bread. Disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (14581) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Süßlich getreidiger Antrunk, geringe Herbe. Weich, sehr sehr süffig. Die helle Malzigkeit steigt, damit verbunden auch die Würzigkeit. Vollmundig, süß, süffig – alles in richtigem Verhältnis zueinander. Gut! 12/12/14/12//12

brokensail (14529) - San Leandro, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, yellow pour with a short lived white head. S: The nose is bready and biscuity with a slight spiciness and some lightly floral and citrusy hops. T: There’s plenty of spicy and sweet orange hop flavor. The malt provides a bit of bready flavor and substance, though the beer is fairly light. M: The body is quite light on the tongue with a bubbly carbonation. D: I don’t think Weihenstephaner makes a bad beer, and this one follows that trend. A nice light beer with some pleasant flavor.

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2001
Combines the two styles brilliantly, with the aromatic maltiness playing off of the toasty notes.

bhensonb (13208) - 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.

Tmoney99 (12729) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet caramel malt and wheat aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid refreshing drinkable beer.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of ilovedarkbeer) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, bread yeast, and alfalfa. Flavor of lemon, grass, and biscuit with a slightly metallic finish.

HenrikSoegaard (12259) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2006
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Week but ok hoppy aroma. Nice bitter flavor, average bitter finish. Watery palate. There are better festbier around.
