bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle from Half Time as Wolters Fest-Bier. Pours a light golden-amber with a slight creamy/bubbly white head. It has an excellent spicy/grassy nose. Must be the hop extract! Near med body. Flavor is rather light caramel with a lot of noble hop bitter. It’s light compared to darker beers, but it’s really good. Except for a bit too much sugar I’d put it up against better pilsners. Based on hop intensity. Green bottle but no skunk.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2009
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, malt and it’s a little dry with a hint of citrus.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 28, 2013
Herber, leicht würziger Antrunk. Leichte Hopfennoten, die Würzigkeit nimmt ab. Trinkbares Märzen. 10/8/8/8/9/8

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear, dark golden appearance with a white head. Toasty, caramel malty lager, mildly nutty aroma. Somewhat bitter, grassy, straw, hay, toasty caramel malty flavor. Not all that good.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a spotty-lacing covering of white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some floral Saaz hoppiness and a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with some finely dissolved carbonation and light sugary sweetness with a decent balance of bittering hops before a crisp bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style, but could be a little fuller bodied.

crossovert (6945) - Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Green bottle festbier. 11.2 oz bottle. It pours an amberish gold with a frothy white head that actually leaves some nice lacing. Smell is lightly skunked, it smells like a beefed-up Euro Pale Lager. It is like if you made an EPL maerzen. The flavor follows, it is a bit more malt forward than the nose would suggest, but it is pretty basic, and weak for a Festbier.

Hansen (6444) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2008
Light amber and clear. Has a big, white head, lasting. Hoppy notes in the aroma, some malt too. Flavor is harmonic, starts moderate sweet and finish moderate bitter. Light syrup texture.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Where and how: Bottle 330ml Beers of the World
Aroma as expected green bottle issues were noted up front. Ok, since that was given beyond that …notes of grainy clean malty character with faint hop hints. Slightly mineral finish. 5-
Appearance :
Top: lighter , lasting head, sparse lace shown.
Base: clear light amber.
Palate : medium light bodied with thinner walls. Lighter than average carbonation.
Taste: Mild “skunky” accents. Clean malt base. Soft approachable finish. Zero heat nor harshness.
Other notes too bad this is sold in green glass.
