DESCRIPTION

Gordon Biersch Festbier celebrates fall and the beers served at a modern-day Oktoberfest. This brew is rich, with malty undertones and a moderately hoppy finish. Maltiness is achieved through a combination of dark-roasted malt, Munich-style malt, and pilsner malt. Imported Hallertau hops create a clean aromatic finish.

STYLE NOTES

MARZEN

Initial malt flavor often suggests sweetness, but finish is moderately-dry to dry. Distinctive and complex maltiness often includes a bready, toasty aspect. Hop bitterness is moderate, and the hop flavor is low to none (German types: complex, floral, herbal, or spicy). Hops provide sufficient balance that the malty palate and finish do not seem sweet. The aftertaste is malty, with the same elegant, rich malt flavors lingering. Noticeable caramel, biscuit, or roasted flavors are inappropriate. Clean lager fermentation profile.
