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.

Poured a pale orange body with two finger head and a little bit of lace. Somewhat of a spicy, dirty, funky, hop bite, touch of citric and bread malt, possibly some sweetness that I missed. Smooth, easy to drink, not overly spicy or bitter, pleasant breadiness leads to crisp, dry finish, touch of sweet malts and for a second I thought some rauchbier flavors but could be my imagination. Something is a tad off but I did enjoy this beer, although $14 for the big boy Oktoberfest glass is a little much.
