2.98/5 rDev -14.9%
Deep golden, clear. White foam, with some bubble.
In the smell, quite fresh, hay, some hop. All above a strong malty base.
The taste is definitely malty, with dusty notes, and again hay on the back.
It left a warming feeling. Not bad, quit pleasant.
Average to high in body.
The aftertaste starts malty, then some hop, not too much, but right to balance.

I would say that this beer lays somewhere between a marzen and a bock. It poured into my extended tumbler with an off white head and orange body with lots of carbonation to the body. All that dissipated relatively quickly. The aroma was sharp and so was the flavor at first. Then it settled down to being very malty. The mouthfeel was very slick.

Produces a good two finger thick white head that dissipates kind of quickly. The body of this brew is clear, and is a bit darker gold than what a helles would be.
Aroma wise it's a bit on the spicy side, something in the way of tobacco, and sweet cereal grain husk.
The taste is pretty on par for the style, nothing really jumps out, though. Just a little grainy sweetness, and cracker like dryness.

Poured from a half litre bottle into lager glass. Thick head quickly faded into faint head, leaving minimal lacing on glass. Not the usual spiciness from a Christmas beer. Color is normal golden hue of lager beer. Light carbonation. tastes much like a normal pilsener to me (sampled with other European christmas beers). Nothing special here....

A - 50cl bottle ppoured into my Paulaner Seidel. Agressively poured producing a 3 finger rocky head that disappates to a 1/2 finger head. Lively beading, minimal lacing.
S - A light malty caramel nutty sweetness. Smells very fresh, some nice bakery sweet cinnamon bread like smell, this is very subtle though.
T - Light marzen sweetness, not overly powering in sweetness, bakery fresh bread taste comes through in the finish, very nice.
M- Medium carbonation, fresh, nice mouthfeel, not syrupy or stale.
D- Very nice festbier, my favourite of the Christmas time festbiers, its fresh crisp and the flavours are subtle which makes it moreish.
