Picked up some today, packaged 7/18. It's deep gold/orange, with nice malt depth and complexity. Terrific, lasting foam. The light but noticeable late hop character is excellent and (along with the fairly pale color)obviously puts it closer to festbier than marzen. This is a better beer than last year's festbier IMO. It's maltier and a tad more amber than last year's, and honestly is sort of a combo festbier/marzen IMO. Who cares, it's an excellent, very drinkable beer. I'll be buying another 12 soon.
Edit for grammar.
Edit2 - I missed that it's actually labeled as a festbier as well. I really like it.
