pFriem FESTBIER Picmonkey

Festbier

 

pFriem Brewing

Hood River, OR

Style: Märzen/Oktoberfest-style

Alcohol: 5.5%

IBUs: 25

Serving style: kegs

Availability: Limited in Pac NW

Appearance:   “It is a dark gold color--maybe even orange or burnt orange. Good white head.”

Aroma:   “Yeasty, baked bread.”

Taste:   “The malt is paramount. Reminds me of the taste of home-made buttermilk biscuits. There’s good carbonation. It’s somewhat sweet, but not overpoweringly so. This is rich, but it seems like you could have at least a couple without getting too filled up.”

Food Affinity:   “Well, those big Bavarian-style pretzels would seem like a natural pairing. Otherwise, maybe some autumn ideas with a Germanic influence like pig knuckle with kraut or grilled weisswurst.”

 

     --Guest reviewer Gary Johnson says tasting this beer takes him back to memories of his junior year abroad program spent in Germany.
