Bright pale copper clear with basically no head. Leafy minerally aroma. Medium sweet overall but a lot of it in the finish, maybe for lack of hops? Light body. Slick. Meh.

Treated as a substyle of the Oktoberfest/Marzen category, I will attempt to rate/review this as a festbier as I believe both brewers set out to do just that. Alright, here we go.
Obviously for proper scientific reasons, this was poured into a mug, a glass one which is closest respected glassware for the style.
The appearance was a semi-glossy yet mellow somewhat transparent golden yellow color. A one and a half fingers worth of white foamy head slid off appropriately, some gentle lace, somewhat stringy but not so much.
The aroma pulled together a wonderful blend of semi-sweet toasty malts with sweet earthiness. Mellow caramel follows in underneath.
The flavor leaned towards a beautiful clean sweetness, running through all of the prior mentioned aromas and wrapping together in a fine tuned bouquet in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation felt great for the style, nothing cloying. And finished with some grassy to earthy tones.
Overall, not only did I really like this one for me but honestly as a true Festbier it's quite good despite the high ABV the brewery assigned to this. I'd definitely have again.

This one pours a clear light amber color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells like sweet caramel and bready malt, fruity yeast, and a touch of hops.

This is just a hair too sweet for the style, as it doesn't have that crispness or any bite that I'd want. The malt character is quite good though, bready, caramelly, creamy, with a pleasantly sweet graininess.

This is light bodied, slightly creamy, and very drinkable. It's not quite crisp enough on the finish.
