Chopper925 (539) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber brown color, small white head. Mighty malty nose, floral hop notes. Sweet taste, with a good balanced bitterness. More caramel malt aftertaste. Medium body, fresh carbonation.

Cerbier (769) - - MAY 1, 2015
0,5l Flasche. Rötlich-braunes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht leicht malzig, schmeckt auch so, allerdings nicht ausgewogen. Das ganze schmeckt zum Schluss etwas metallisch.

harrisoni (17994) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Erlangernick, thanks Nick. Clear mid brown amber lasting beige head. A bit Marzen on the aroma. Malty. Some decent hop. Funny it’s not as sweet as some. It’s fine, quite drinkable. Easy drinking. Not much hop on finish but I like the malt.

JoeinDahlem (1479) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
My crate of this has alternated between smooth, sweet-tooth-malty beauties and unfortunate diacetyl bombs. I rate the good ones here. Scratches that holiday comfort itch with a mellow light-caramel sweetness on medium body. Lovely light amber color. Welcome edge of alcohol warmth.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Draft at Kellerwald as Hebendanz Annafestbier.
Sweet, apple-y, a little metallic and it tends to smell like the croc, really. Seems young and rough and not lagered long enough. Medium-light body, sweet, a little syrupy, malt in the finish is baked bread and saccharine. Minimal hop bitterness, little aroma either.

wastl (130) - GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Although it is called a Festbier, it is available the whole year round I think. Never liked the looks of this bottle, strangely styled picture of Forchheim in ugly colors. Clear brown color, head vanishes quickly, not a lot of carbonation. Smells heavily malty. Rather sweet on the onset, slight bitterness, strong malty aroma, roasted, little bit of coffee, dark bread. Not very well balanced. Finishes slightly metallic, but malty flavors stick to the tongue. Body could be more pronounced, not really a beer to remember.

MichaelAwesome (6503) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Ein dumpfes Bier ohne große Momente. Malzig, mit ein wenig Karamell. Mehr aber auch nicht. Knapp im Schnitt.

McTapps (6785) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2014
The beer pours out of the bottle ina clear amber colour with quite low head and medium to thin body. Aroma of light smoke and malt. Taste of malt, barley, bread, woods, chimney, leaves and dust. Light smokey hints. Sweet, brown sugary finsih. Very strange and light unpleasant, even annoying(!) beer.

Erzengel (8432) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2014
Rated as "Annafest-Bier".
Das Bier ist orange-bernsteinfarben und riecht hopfig-frisch. Im Antrunk kommt auch zu allererst das Hopfenaroma zum Vorschein, allerdings ziemlich schnell zu der frischen Herbe eine Ladung Malz. Insgesamt ein sehr interessantes Bier, mir persönlich aber eine Spur zu herb, weil sich die Herbe etwas penetrant lange im Mund hält, wenn alle anderen Aromen schon verflogen sind. Insgesamt aber doch nicht so schlecht.
Test vom 16.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,9,9,12,10 - 9,85
