Draft. Pours a dark orangey amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and flavor are malty (caramel with some darker malt) with a floral, citrus hoppy nose. Full mouthfeel. Easy drinking but fairly tasty. HighlanderOne (1373) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2002
I wasn't too crazy about this one. Has a somewhat off flavor, as if too old. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2001
Just an average beer. Not much of anything, just a slight bitter taste. .... gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Had this one on draught in Manteo, North Carolina. Way overrated. Medium reddish brown pour with a filmy head and very little nose, cidery and somewhat dry but balanced. Not terrible, but not good either. Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Pretty average micro. A little going on, and I mean a little. This is a good lawnmower beer. Crisp and easy to drink with enough malting to give it some character. A bit watery with a litle bitterness to remind you that this is an America fest beer.

Bottle. Amber colored with fairly rapidly diminishing white
head. Has malty aroma, with a peculiar odor--some kind of
weird sweet smell. Flavor is malty and saccharin. Too sweet.
Makes you mouth draw up. Malt flavors are unbalanced and
this could definitely use more hops for a balance. Oh well, it is
drinkable, and tastes better as you get used to the sweetness.

Crystal clear amber pour releases a nicely lasting off white head, and the appearance is quite promising. Light caramel aroma, perhaps some faint hops. Malt dominated flavors with some citrus hops coming through a well carbonated, even fizzy, light to medium body. Pleasant enough, but nothing special. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2010
22 oz. bomber. a light lager with not much flavor but although is drinkable and refreshing. dark orange color, medium head. It definitely has a clean taste. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Copper color, nice fluffy head leaves a clean glass. The caramel sweetness is in perfect balance. Light on the tongue. Crisp and decent. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Weeping Radish Fest Amber Lager pours to a beautiful, bright, deep amber color with a creamy white head, and a good amount of carbonation. The nose is very well done on this beer with an excellent balance of toasty/nutty malt aroma and grassy/herbal hop aromatics. The palate is firm, with plenty of sweet, toasty, and nutty malt flavors. The body is round, and clean, making this beer very smooth and drinkable. Fest Lager ends with more sublime balance, good toasty malt flavors up front and some nice herbal hop bitterness at the end.
This is a truly exceptional example of marzen/Oktoberfest bier, with fantastic toasty/nutty flavors, and great balance
