Bestes Festbier und Gold beim European Beer Star 2016! Nach altem Familienrezept gebraut ist unser Festbier für besondere Anlässe. Ausgewogen, mild und sehr süffig. Gebraut mit 100% Hallertauer Naturhopfen. Als seltene Besonderheit wird das Festbier für die Ochsenbraterei Wenisch, als einziges auf dem Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing noch traditionell handwerklich in offenen Gärbottichen gebraut. Das gibts auch auf der Münchner Wiesn nicht mehr. Brauhandwerk und Familientradition seit 1871. 6,1 % vol. Alkoholgehalt

Zlotta (3034) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2016
0.5 l bottle as ’Erlkönig Festbier Original’ at 6.1% abv, best before October 2016, from Koelschtrinker, thanks Roman! Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, dense and slightly creamy, almost stable, white head. Slightly grainy, quite grassy-spicy and minimally fruity aroma of grains, straw and hints of citrus. Sweetish, slightly grainy, a bit grassy-spicy and minimally fruity taste of caramel, grains, a touch of honey, straw and hints of citrus, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Easily drinkable and thirst-quenching Lager.

Had this as Erlkönig Festbier Original - probably the same beer. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine malty, spicy, strong, but not alcoholic. Light wheaty notes. Finish dominated by spicy notes, well balanced and quite drinkable. Nice!
