Notes / Commercial Description:
Gordon Biersch FestBier celebrates fall and the flavor profile of beers served at the modern-day Oktoberfest. FestBier emphasizes rich, malty undertones with a moderately hoppy finish. The maltiness is created via a combination of dark-roasted, Munich-style malt and Pilsner malt. The hoppy aroma is achieved via the imported Hallertau aroma hops.

Yellow beer, half inch of white head that gets the F outta dodge pretty quick. Mild, underplayed aromas, almost nothing beyond grain, mildly toasted. Mild Mild Mild. I need another adjective. Now I have that adjective song from Mr. T Experience stuck in my head.

Its an easy going beer with slightly more, toastier malt than BMC, the wheat giving it a craft edge so you can put a slice of ___ citrus fruit in your glass. Has a place in the world.

On tap at the Atlanta brewpub. Served colder than ideal temperature.

Look: amber body with excellent clarity and a creamy bone head.

Aroma: mild mix of malts and hops, with a hint of citrus.

Flavor: follows the aroma. Clean but a bit mild.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body and medium carbonation. Nicely smooth.

Overall: clean, refreshing, easy drinking,

Original must have had Hallertau, but the version in Syracuse uses Hersbrucker.
Still the same awesome style, but with a bit more floral to me.
Very well done, just seems a little maltier with the 'Brucker.

On-tap at Gordon Biersch, San Francisco Airport Terminal 3

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Sweet aromas of bready and toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of sweet toasted malts and bready malts, the latter of which stand out in the finish. There is a very slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation along with a bit of smoothness.
O: This beer has an interesting mix of bready and toasted malts.

Serving type: on-tap

A fantastic seasonal selection from Gordon Biersch that make me look forward to the Fall months. Can be enjoyed by itself, or paired with a wide range of foods.
