COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich and malty, Festie is now available year-round, and it is our tribute to the great German lager. Its name invokes the German tradition of Oktoberfest, while also paying homage to the end of the summer music festival season.

3.1
TheGB (579) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Pours a nice amber with a 1/2" head. Aroma of yeast and some malt. Light to medium bodied with a smooth taste. Fine, but not that interesting.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear amber bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted pale malty nose with some noble hops and a touch of tart fruitiness. Starts with too much carbonation and foams in the mouth, slowly revealing some earthy floral bittering hop balance before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable once the carbonation subsides.

3.2
Shag (3071) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Orange color with white head. Aroma contains citrus and caramel. The flavor also contains some caramel and citrus namely lemons. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Overall an ok beer.

Aurelius (5684) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Sweet malt aroma with some graininess, and just a little twang. OK label, good cap, tannish gold beer with a respectable head. Just a bit cloudy. Sour, low bittering, a little briny. Doesn’t taste like marzen, unless you’d squeezed a lemon into it. Tangy, wood-bitter aftertaste on a medium body. @#$. I bought a six pack. Publix.

fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2011
bottle thanks to Danny, pours light amber with a thin off white head. Bready aroma with nuts and toasted grains. Flavor is all malt, bread, nuts, toast. Pretty one dimensional.

2.6
drowland (9191) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2011
5/3/11. 12oz bottle. Light amber pour, almost orange, with a huge off-white head that fades fast. Slightly sweet malty aroma with a bit of caramel. Sweet malty flavor as well with a hint of lemon peel in there. Meh.

2.8
PorterPounder (8396) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Park Avenue - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, bubbly white head - sticks around a while. Aroma is pretty much neutral, with just a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor is leaning to the sweet side with some caramel accents, a hint of butterscotch, and just a bit of ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel is thick enough, A little late in the season for a fest beer....methinks this has been sitting in a hot warehouse for quite a while.

3.1
BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Draft sample at Knoxville Brewers Jam 2010. Amber in the glass with a tall frothy white head. Aromas of earthiness, malts, an d spice. The flavor found caramel and spice. Light to medium body with a malt and spice aftertaste.

2.9
Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Typical, boring malty Oktoberfest. A little dirty in the aftertaste, but than again, it’s December and I’m drinking an Oktoberfest. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

2.6
bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2010
12 oz bottle. Bright gold and hazy. Nose is soapy and not much else. Taste was very mild with some peach flavors. Sort of like a poor mans DFH Festina Peche. Bright and effervescent. This is certainly not an Octoberfest and not rich and malty as the description says.
