Impression: I was on a quest for Fests (and Bocks) this day so despite their Festbier only being available in bottled form and their Hell being gravity dispensed, I opted for it. I was glad I did, as it was a very nice Fest, with some spiciness and fair hopping to go with the requisite malty palate. It was a bit cold but as it warmed up, some fruitiness also popped through and the finish was drier and more bitter than most Fests.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
