Gordon Biersch Fest Bier

As Oktoberfest approaches, Gordon Biersch brings out the big mugs for its seasonal Fest Bier.  An unfiltered Munich-style lager, the Fest Bier is generally one of the best seasonals produced by Gordon Biersch.  Maybe because of Oktoberfest.  Perhaps it is those big mugs.

As you can see, the beer pours out an amber color and, although the picture does not show it, the beer did have good carbonation.  When drinking the beer, you can taste the hops, although the hop taste is far less than what you would experience drinking a pale ale.

Overall, this is a very good beer for Oktoberfest, American-style.  However, if you want to truly experience Oktoberfest, Munich-style, I would suggest that you buy a beer Weihenstephan or Hofbrau Haus.
