Impression: This was the second beer I had from this regional brewery. I thought the Pils was just okay but this Festbier was tastier if not as dry as I’d like. It certainly looked better and had a nice rich malt aroma. It was very much malt forward and fairly clean but lacked some dryness in finish. If I saw both on tap, this is the one I’d go for.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
