Enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass, this solid example of a festbier pours cloudy orange brown with a nominal off white head and decent lacing. Nose of biscuit, caramel malts, and some light bittering hops. Flavors are straight forward for the style. Rich caramel malts on all sides with a bready characteristic and light bittering hops to the rear. Smooth lightly coating mouth feel finishes wet with a light sweet aftertaste mingling with light hops. Very true to the style.

Picked up a bottle from TW Arrowhead in late September for $1.99. Best by 12-11-14. TW received sticker was 9-11-14.

Beer poured amber with a head that fizzled immediately after the pour.

Nose is grainy with some hints of floral hops.

Taste is nutty and biscuit with a decent hop bite balance to reduce the sweetness level.

Mouthfeel is fairly smooth yet decently carbonated.

Overall not a bad beer, glad I had the opportunity to try.
