COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional bock-beer-speciality of Castle Eggenberg. This beer is brewed only seasonally and therefore available during Christmas and Easter holidays. Careful and slow fermentation and maturation make Festbock a desired beer not only in Austria but also in Italy, where it is exported in 30 lt. kegs.

yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2010
33 cL bottle, as Birra Magalotti 1845 Bock, courtesy of fuijilin. Pours clear and golden orange with a dense creamy and white head. Aroma is malty, light caramelish. Sweet, malty, fruity and light metallic flavoured. Bitter and dense caramelish into a bitter and medium dry finish.

Ungstrup (37581) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
A yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is metallic combined with notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel leading to a slightly dry metallic end. The flavor is a lot better than the aroma - though still only average.

joergen (28141) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Malty aroma with hoppy notes. Malty flavour with a bit sweetness and notes of metal and hops. Disappointing.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2005
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with mediumsized creamy head. Vegetables, malt and hops in aroma along with grassy notes. Skunky malts and hops in flavour along with frass. Mouthdrying. Much carbonation, makes you burp alot.

omhper (25117) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2005
Bottled. Clear pale golden, rich but brief head. Concentrated grassy hop aroma along the lines of a richer south German pilsener. Hearty, buttery maltiness, solid fresh moutfeel, unusually richly hopped for an Austrian beer. Restrained malt sweetness. Pleasantly bitter finish. Thoroughly well made!

2.8
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head that leaves some laces. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Solid body dominated by sweet malt and alcohol. Somewhat crude - and very typical - strong lager, bitter finish without any refinement. But drinkable all right. 180106

25th October 2011
Bottle in Genoa purchased from Enoteca Squillari as ’Birra Magalotti 1845 Doppio Malto Bionda’. Clear gold beer, good white head. Light palate, a little dry. Sweet pale malt, almost sugary sweet. Creamy as well. Some buried marmaladey citrus prevents stepping over the line to ’sicklyville’. Dry finish. Not terrible!

2.7
fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2010
As Magalotti 1845
Deep blond color. Mild aroma of straws and honey. Sweetish malt flavor, correct bitterness, some alcohol presence. Boozy.

2.7
Beerhunter111 (20472) - P´Castle, GERMANY - APR 18, 2015
Das Bier hat eine klare goldgelbe Farbe und eine fingerbreite weiße Schaumkrone. Geruch scharf malzig, kräftig gehopft, würzig. Geschmack kräftig malzig, leichte Süße, dezent hopfig, leicht alkoholisch.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Süßer Antrunk, unnnausgereift klebrig wirkend. Wenig herb werdend, alkoholisch-scharf im Hintergrund. Mit der Zeit wird das Bier etwas erträglicher, es bleibt aber sehr penetrant klebrig-künstlich und wenig süffig. Ein gewöhnungsbedürftiger Bock... 9/6/5/6/7/5
