I poured this chilled in a wheat glass.

The color is clear golden with 2 finger rocky white head. The smell is fruity and lightly tangy with mild yeast ester and malt smell is noticeable. The feel is decent with good carbonation level and mildly c reamy texture with medium body and semi-dry lightly bitter finish.

The taste is very good with good malt body and light yeast in the front wtih slight hop giving a mild citrus and light spiced with subtle sweetness and light dry malt/ yeast essence in the finish. Overall this is a very good beer, enjoyable and went well with my bacon and egg breakfast taco-nice balance of malt and hops

Eine marzen?! Nein, kwatch! Das ist eine Euro pale lager.

There was nothing here resembling a festbier. This was fairly bland overall. Sweet bready malts that come across as kind of adjunct-y. Maybe a little grassy hop at the end. Heavy feeling overall.

Served in a 0.5L Stiegl...glass...at Beelow's.

At the time of this writing, this beer is classified as an O-Fest. ...The hell did I miss!? Whatever. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises fresh flowers, grass, mild biscuit, and a very slight twinge of pine needle. The taste brings in more of the same, the flowers and grass really shining brightly, showing off what simplicity can achieve. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, this was a damn fine beer (awful for an O-Fest...), one whose popularity here I can easily understand. Good times.
