Impression: Very attractive Festbier with a pale amber hue and rocky chiffon like head. Fair nose of grain and light spice. Fairly balanced richly malty palate with just enough hops to make for a lingering finish which begs for another sip. Must admit I wasn’t expecting much but it’s better than many a Festbier.
