Impression:  I’d had their Weihnachtsfestbier in November quite by accident when doing a hike I’d previously only done in summer. When doing the hike with my wife the following spring, I was pleasantly surprised to find a Maifest. I was even happier when it was once again a very dark brew, similar to the one I’d had the previous autumn but more chocolatey rather than roasty, and just a bit of licorice in the mix.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
