WEIHENSTEPHANER FESTBIER

Weihenstephaner Festbier. The festbier is a seasonal speciality brew also known as Oktoberfestbier or Märzen.

For the purists the term ‘Oktoberfestbier’ only applies to beer brewed within Munich city limits, so this, brewed at Freising near the airport, doesn't count. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a seasonal lager. A sessionable 5.8% ABV and a mild 26 IBU.

Pale yellow colour with a head that dissipates quickly. Mild and sweet pilsner malt aroma. Medium to light body with low carbonation, possibly as a result of handling. Gentle pilsner malt flavour with a soft, grassy euro lager taste.It tastes like a slightly refined beer chicken.

Perhaps it tastes better fresh from the source, sitting under a tree in a Munich beer garden.
