Ottenbräu Jubiläums Gillamoos Beer
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly toasted malty aroma with a tinge of chestnut, caramel and bready notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dark malt character with mildly toasted accents, caramel and discreetly nutty notes; quite rounded sweet-bitter, slightly toast-malty and hoppy finish. Balanced and decent stuff without any extremes. 16.IX.15

Ottenbräu Heller Bock
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, deep golden colour with a firm and medium-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Bready malty aroma with notes of caramel, honey and a mildly herbal hoppy background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a well-matured carbonation. Bready cara-malty base with a whiff of honey, spicy notes of anise and a discreet but still balanced herbal hoppy backbone; sweet and slightly hop bitter finish with caramel and mildly spicy notes in the aftertaste. Balanced and good. 17.VI.16

Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for sharing. The beer is caramelly and sweetish. Nice but a bit sugary sweetish with not much bitterness. Easy to drink, fruity with mild aroma, round and smooth. Nice fresh in the aftertaste, but the sweetish aroma dominates the picture.

Euro2-Flasche: Copper coloured, clear, medium-sized loose off-white head; caramel, dark malt and Sauerteig-Roggenbrot in the nose, hops barely detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, pretty light bodied for a beer of 6.0%; drier and more bitter nutty and malty finish. Ottenbräu is good…

Ottenbräu Jubiläums Gillamoos Beer
In comparison to the regular Gillamoos Bier (a local festival) this is a dark beer and it was first brewed in 2013 for the centinary of the Gillamoos. It has a very smooth texture, the taste is slightly sweet and smoky. Aso caramel malt and a hint of hallertau hops. Alltogether a very fine specimen of bavarian dark beer. (Something I personally like a lot)

Flsche von pivnizub. Danke an den piwiaz. Ein simples, etwas dumpfes und viel zu süßes Bierchen. Märzen scheinen bei mir ohnehin nicht einzuschlagen und da dieses beinahe mit Zuckerkulör oder Glukose gepimpt zu sein scheint, war es kein großes Erlebnis. Eher gar keins.

Bottle with many thanks from Günther. It pours out in a clear amber colour with steady head and medium to light smooth body. Nose of dark grains. Taste of sugary malt, burnt caramel, brown sugar, fruit cake, straw, ripe apples and brown bread. Very sweet finish with dusty hints. Unfortunately way too sweet for me - not that easy to drink, but it has quaffable hints.

500ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with small to average, frothy, off-white head. Wheaty and caramel malty aroma, hints of bread, candy fruit, a citrusy touch, some pear, herbal and minimally floral hoppy overtones. Taste is minimally sweet wheat malty, slightly citrusy, dry hoppy overtones, decent yeasty touch; matching average carbonation. Not spectacular, no special, salient feature, but well-balanced and simply yummy.

(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a fluffy and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly biscuity cara-malty aroma with herbal hoppy spice. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with an almost silky, well-matured carbonation. Smooth cara-malty and biscuity taste with delicately honeyish fruity notes, as well as herbal hoppy accents from behind; long-lasting biscuity malty and mildly herbal hoppy finish. A well-crafted Festbier, that deserves its name. 20.V.13

Nice aroma , so-so appearance, and mediocre taste. Normal dark golden color for the style, very malty aroma.Taste is decent but short, not much of a finish. Drinkability is a key quality of a festbier, and this one definitely is.

Taste is monotonous, minimally sweet pale malty, notes of husk and straw, at least a fresh touch of citrus; light body. Can’t take pleasure in this.

Am 27.04.13 trank ich dieses tolle bier das ich schon lang mal testen wollte bei Wasanas Getränke Oase In Idar-Oberstein. Was mir gleich gut gefallen hat war ein schönes Label auf dieser Flasche. Und man war neugierig da man natürlich für Festbiere gewisse Vorstellungen hat. Schöner weicher Antrunk, weiches Aroma, leichtherb und schön füffig. Eines der wirklich feinen Festbiere das mit den ganz grossen bayrischen Konkurrenzfirmen wie die alljährlich herauskommenden Oktoberfestbiere konkurrieren kann. Würde es jedem Freund empfehlen, würde es mit einer Gruppe gerne trinken als Bier wo man ein Paar von geniessen kann wie das auf einem Fest halt so ist. Nach einem Bier geht man ja noch nicht heim. Short form in english: Good "Festbier" good smell. You can drink a pair of it. with friends... it can concurrate with the big Festbeers without problems and you can drink it also every day with your friends. A beer which I like. greets Jürgen
