Definitely not a festbier. It looked like one, but it was quite bitter and had not malty side, no toffee toastiness either. I had this side by side with their helles and the difference is negligable - both are dominated by bitterness with no hop flavor and lacking malt body.

I was fairly impressed with this beer in that I got more than I expected. As the name implies, it is amber in color with a slight malt aroma. The hop aroma is even more slight. Decent malt flavor, but lacking in mouthfell. Only slight bitterness, which I would expect. This doesnt approach the complexity of a good marzen, but not bad. I should add a caveat - I dont general like lighter lagers at all.

As the description says, slightly malty and toasted; quickly dissipates though. Decent, but not much flavor. It has a little nutty/malty bite, but it doesnt last long. I was a little disappointed, especially after reading about their strong Bavarian influence.
