The Festbier is more like the style of bier you would actually be enjoying at the festzelts in Munich. Though the Märzen was the official beer served at Oktoberfest for over 120 years, the Munich breweries decided to make a change in late 1900s to the lighter, more easy drinking Festbier. The Festbier is still reasonably malty, but less heavy & lighter in color than the Märzen with a bread, slightly sweet flavor, rounded out by the herbal, spicy & floral qualities of the German hop varieties.
