beer in glass with bottle
Held-Bräu Fest-Bier

Brewery: Held-Brau
Style: Festbier
deep golden
Head: rocky, white

Nose: rich malt,
Palate: balanced,
malty, grainy
Finish: clean, semi-bitter, semi-dry

Served: from a bottle bought locally

Impression: This is a rich malty Fest, typical of the area. I was pleasantly surprised at how hoppy their Hellerbock was so must admit I’m a little disappointed to not find the same here. That said, it’s drier than most and probably hoppier too, underneath all the malt. It’s certainly well made and evidently what most are looking for in the style but personally I’d like a little brother to their hoppy Bock.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
