Hacker-Pschorr Festbier

This is the limited edition 6.0% ABV golden Oktoberfest lager beer from Hacker-Pschorr brewery of Munich, Germany. They are one of the handful of Munich brewers who serve at the original Oktoberfest celebration. Check out their website and read the descriptions of their various "beer tents" and if it doesn't make your mouth water, I don't know what will.

The beer pours a deep golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy white head. The aroma is honey, grain, straw, grass and flowers. The taste follows the aromas, rich golden grain, honey, sweetness, but then the dryness of straw and grass, with a moderately bitter finish. The beer drinks refreshing, smooth, but crisp. This is an absolute top notch lager, it would be a joy to drink by the liter at Oktoberfest, or anytime.
