Postmortem Brew Review
Orange tinged and dark amber color.
Malty sweet with whiffs of hops.
Caramel tan head that has some staying power.
Minimal lacing on glass.
Malty and sweet candy-like taste with just a bit of hops finish.
Light to medium bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
How can this be anything but good? It even has 'Bier' in the name.

Mmmm, dark malty goodness. Just the right splash of hops on your tongue to remind you what a Marzen is all about. These guys have a Marzen in their arsenal already, so what's the difference between that and this FestBier? The traditional Marzen it appears is brewed year round while this is a seasonal, more contemporary brew. The Marzen is also noted elsewhere to be paler, but I will let you know when I find one!
