Festbier - Victory Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a seidel, this brew's got a 3 finger thick lumpy off white head with spottier lacing, and a clear medium-dark amber body.

I smell a fruity characteristic alongside the usual caramelized malt traits associated with the style of brew.

The taste is that of fruit and sweeter notes much more than roasted malt tastes. A very unique take on a marzen brew, at least in my opinion.

Mouthfeel here is clean and crisp. Nothing lingers with this beer.


Overall a 4 for Festbier - Victory Brewing Company. I might grab this again, but it wasn't anything to write home about.
