jackl (8271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Comes in a handsome bottle. Darker in appearance than most fests I’ve seen. Light, bucolic nose. Dry mouthfeel with light malts apparent on the tongue. Not very complex, made for easy drinking. OK, but nothing to write home about.

TaktikMTL (7874) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
En fût. Bock de 1 litre, partagée avec des amis, dégusté au AnnaFest 2011 (Forcheim, Allemagne). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est dorée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #3821)

ekstedt (6932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2011
Bottled at GBBF 2011. Clear amber, small off-white head. Bready and bisquity, slightly yeasty, with floral and grassy hops. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly dry with mild lingering bitterness.

rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle at GBBF 2011. Golden/copper color, small head. Malty aroma, caramel, brown sugar, bready, fruity notes. Malty flavor, a bit roasted, caramel, sweetish but also with a nice hop balance.

MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Lightly herbal hops move into earthy bitterness in this doughy, full-bodied festbier.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam drops into the krug.
-Malts once again lay out soft sugars but no polished flavors.
-Herbal hops could be brighter, especially in the aroma.
-Drinkability is reduced by the full body.

On tap at Annafest.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Hopfig und fruchtig im Geruch. Süßlicher Antrunk. Mitte hopfenaromatisch, leicht malzig. Herber im Abschluß. Etwas arm an co2, dafür sehr süffig und bekömmlich. Geschmacklich auch in Ordnung. Gut. Test vom 28.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2009
8th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Brownish gold clear beer. Smooth malt with a hint of caraway. Very clean and fresh. Dry finish with a sweet note and then a caraway malt aftertatse.

yngwie (17109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with an off-white head. Caramel-malty nose with a nice balancing fruityness and some slightly peppery hops. Malty, bready flavor with fruity hops, medium body, quite dry. Good bitterness towards the end, where also som bready flavors blend in. A quite decent beer. 090822
