COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein selbstgebrautes Pils, hopfenbetont, herb und schlank im Geschmack, dafür steht unser neuester Zuwachs in der Airbräu-Bierfamilie. Heller als das FliegerQuell passt sich dieses naturtrübe Bier perfekt ein. Ein Exot in der traditionellen Bayerischen Bierlandschaft, der aber nicht nur den Zugreisten schmeckt.

BeerandBlues2 (11471) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Draught at Airbräu, Flughafen München. Pours cloudy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy yeast and corny Pils malt with light earthy hops. Flavor is yeast and corny Pils malt, medium earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

SinH4 (1600) - Garching, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
Hazy yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma is bready/toasty, with a lemon-zesty hop character. Taste is quite dominant on the lemony hops and some spicy yeasts that complement them, with a bready undertone that works together with the rest just fine. Mouthfeel is quite crisp, but also quite "unfiltered", meaning a bit silky and you do get the yeasts in there. Later in the mouth, you get some weird veggie and phenol notes, egg shell and sulfuric - maybe it’s not meant to be kept in the mouth for too long. Or was this just my first DMS beer? I leave the rating standing, because besided this weird flavour, it’,s bare necessities, but incorporated nicely and with some extra citrus zest!

3fourths (8879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Draft at Airbräu MUC. Late-hopped / dry-hopped with Huell Melon. Hazed gold with a lasting white head. Hoppy and zesty and yeasty, it’s pulpy and orange-lemon-pepper focused with a hard citrus bite due to the firm yeast presence. The consequence of this is that the malt profile is somewhat buried, but what is there is enjoyably toasty and baguette-like. Medium bodied, semi-sweet with palpable bitterness. Finishes dry and pithy, yeasty and creamy but not doughy (only a little eggy/sulfuric, but it fits well in the whole of the experience). It’s fuller-bodied and burlier than you expect of Pilsner, but it’s not weighty, and the sweetness is appropriately balanced. It’s really the bright effervescence that brings it all together; just shy of being sharp and grating, it instead blends well with the "pulpy" and "zesty" quality of the yeast, presenting the citric hops and toasty malt in stellar fashion. A surprisingly clean, bitter, and slammable unfiltered Pilsner, not something I would expect from an airport brewery, even in Germany.

Wanja (767) - GERMANY - DEC 4, 2015
On tap (0.33 l) at the brewpub at Munich airport. Clody light yellow color, good head. Fruity hop aroma of grapes and maybe Litchi. Quite mild for a Pilsener, but the fruity refreshing taste is amazing.

Leighton (16273) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Draft at the brewpub, Munich Airport, to conclude the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white cap. Biscuity aroma, with light cereal and hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with doughy bread, faint floral hops, sugary cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with notes sweet biscuits, cereal, white bread, mild bitter straw. Very basic but tasty and drinkable.

on tap in the brewery biergarten. quite a hazed yellow with a keen head and soapy lacing; some red berry and hay in the aroma; more bitter than expected, somewhere between grassy and tinny; light yeast bite, quick and pleasant

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at Airbrau Munich airport. Hazy pale gold colour lasting white head. Lager malt aroma quite cereally. Then some interesting lemon hop on the finish which is quite dominant. The lemon hop finish is excellent. Good beer.

KyotoLefty (8431) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 2, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Cloudy light/pale gold with a fine head. Nice hoppy nose, herbs and lemon, a bit of cracker malt. Sweet malts, a bit of honey, just a touch of diacetyl, herbal and spicy hops. A tiny bit of DMS too. Good peppery finish. The flaws are not huge, but bring it down.

EKGoldings (619) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On draft at the Airbrau brewery facility at the Munich airport. Unfiltered for sure, pours wit-beer hazy with good head. Taste is two big steps down from the unfiltered Pils at Weihenstephan. Not bad, the flavor is just not quite right. Some astringency I wasn’t expecting. Not terrible, but probably the worst beer I had in Germany of many dozens.
