Served in a willibecher at the tap room.

Gotta love it when the O=Fest sounds like a party goin' on downtown, right? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber-topaz topped by a finger of wan cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted caramel, grass, a hint of flowers, light biscuit, and a drop or two of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, complete with a healthy balance between the caramel and the grass. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a very nice, well-balanced O-Fest. Clearly these guys get the Germans better than most...

I had a couple of these on tap at HB Jones in Elmhurst. HB has a good beer selection and some really nice food options.
Served in a standard pint, the beer is brown with amber highlights. The beer has terrific lacing.

It has a nice aroma of grains and a bit of fruit.

This was a beer that grew on me. The initial taste was a bit sour, but then it was quickly followed by bready malts and some spice from the hops. Malt centric pretty much right in-line for an older style O-Fest (which I like better than the new lighter ones).

Mouth has decent heft. Good combination of easy drinking & good tasting. Session beer for sure.
