Fest is awesome. One of their best beers.

A. Dark gold. Nice thick off white creamy head that takes its time to dissipate.

S. Nice strong malty scent. Nostril filling aroma is very sweet.

T. Taste is very malty. Not too bitter but has a nice sweet kick to it at the end.

M. Mouthfeel is nice and light. Not very carbonated either.

O. Overall the beer is great. Victorys best sessional beer and so glad it's year round.

Great job Victory.

Appearance- Clear amber almost light ruby red hue with one inch white head that fades fast but keeps a ring around the glass. Smell - Light bready malt with caramel and grassy spicy hop notes. Taste - Caramel with a light nuttiness and sweet pilsner malt are equaled by spicy grass with light floral hop flavor that keeps till the end. Overall - Not a bad beer wish breadiness would stand up stronger against the hops.
