Doughy malt aroma. Clear clean appearance with a nice tight head. Plenty of lacing. Very clean tasting with just the right amount of malty sweetness. Finishes off with a good dry hop flavor. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours a golden coppery color with a thin off white quickly dissipating head. Smells orangey with some light banana and grapefruit tinges. Taste is bitter and mellow with a nice peppery underbite. Some nice lemony elements pop through on the back of the tongue. Definitely above average for a German autumn brew. Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2008

Nice rocky head. Good aroma, hazy golden color. Very drinkable. Not too sweet, not too bitter.

Orangey amber, cloudy, quite beautiful with a thin white head. Rich malty mouthfull, nice German hops at the end, very high quality stuff, I enjoy this brewery's beers! harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
My father turned me onto this one a while back. I must say I was really impressed. This went down so easily. Great to pour and has a nice amber glow to it. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Had a pleasant chilled, hazy orange look. Mostly malt and rye flavors. Ends quite dry and clean. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Pours pretty cloudy due to a good amount of yeast sedimetn. Relatively light for an oktoberfest, being a golden deep yellow. Low head. Aroma is delicately smooht with light malts, munich, and some earthy and slightly floral hops. Flaovr is subtly in that it has a medium maltiness but balances well with the hops. Pretty good and smooth but needs to be a little darker and a little bit more malty for an oktoberfest. Perhaps more body is needed too. Pretty good overall but I expected a bit more from burgerbrau.

the very last bottle of Festbier, bought at the brewery shop. Hazy amber-brown colour, large beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, intensive malt flavours with hints of roasted malts, raisins and prunes. A delicious brew!
