Malt Monday Beer Review of the Week: Wolters Fest-Bier
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 5.0%
Price: Part of $5 Mystery Bag
I am still digging through my $5 Mystery Bag and the next beer up is Wolters Fest-Bier. Wolters Fest-Bier is a German beer mainly produced during festival season and brewed under the German purity law. Considered a value beer is Germany, it looks like a 6-pack sells for about $5.
Wolters Fest-Bier pours a light golden amber color with a white foam which quickly dissipated and didn’t seem to keep its temperature very long. This beer, while lacking in depth, is extremely easy to drink. Lacking any type of special flavor, I did notice hints of sweetness with a mild finish. Wolters Fest-Bier is finely carbonated and has a very earthy quality.
I tried this week’s beer over dinner and found it was a nice compliment to the meal given its mild flavor. This beer as a whole is not over powering and is very light in the mouth. It almost reminds me of what we would consider a “light” beer here in the States.
While Wolters Fest-Bier is drinkable and I can see why it would be popular during festival season, though it’s not fine enough to be recommended. While I wouldn’t turn one down if I was offered one gain, unfortunately, this week’s Malt Monday Beer Review of the Week for Wolters Fest-Bier is a pass.
