The Schwabenbräu tent proved to be a bit sedate during my 30SEP09 visit to the Cannstatter Wasen. That being said, I mosied over to the Stuttgarter Hofbräu tent. The band here was cooking, as were the frauleins. Hot Damn!!

Over the course of a couple hours I quaffed 2 liters (at 7.90EU per). Like the Schwaben Festbier, this one was also great to look at. A clear, medium golden brew topped by a frothy, off-white head. Foam sits at 1" plus for some time, and laces up the stein superbly. Nose is a bit restrained, though light bread and cracker come forth. A solid mouthfeel, with medium body and very acceptable smoothness.

Flavor has good bread here, along with some cracker and toasty malts mixing it up. Has some hop spiciness, though less than Schwaben. Quite the decent band-listening, fraulein-ogling Festbier! Prosit!!
