Victory Brewing Company produces V-Twelve, which is one of my all-time favorite beers. I'm also a fan of their Golden Monkey, so I was curious to see what I thought of their other products.
Festbier is a Marzen or Oktoberfest style beer.
The beer pours a slightly cloudy reddish brown, with a thick off-white head.
The aroma is yeasty.
The flavor has a hint of smokiness to it, and is an excellent balance between malt and hops. I enjoyed the beer, but didn't love it nearly as much as V-Twelve.
The folks at Beer Advocate give it an 83-85 out of 100, or call it merely "good".
My rating: 6/10
