Gordon Biersch FestBier

On tap, $4.50 served in 0.5 L German style mug with an O’fest logo.

A surpringly, light orange body. Color has some macro characteristics. Head is OK but fades quite badly.

Extremely yeasty in the nose and tastes with some light fruits. The alcohol seems to build a little over the course of the beer. Dry ending with even more yeast. Light esters in the nose which seem more prominent in the smell than the taste. Lingers a little.

Feels pleasing, rich and full in the mouth.

A bit odd in terms of appearance and taste to be honest but it still drinks OK. Fruity and enjoyable but a long way from a traditional version of the style.
