2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home as ”Ayinger Lager Hell”, BBE 04/2013
Rather foamy stuff to be a German lager; started to come out of the bottle a moment after opening and my Ayinger glass was half head half liquid after the pour. Very bright appearance. Aroma has butter, some grassy hops, hints of herbs and grain. Flavour has butter, some harsh gooseberry bush notes, grain, hints of grassy hops and distant herbal notes. The hops feel a bit old and harsh here, perhaps would have been better fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ayinger bar Munich. Crystal clear gold colour lasting white head. Bready aroma. Clean in the mouth with a decent kick of lemon and bitterness on the finish. Ayinger were my favourite brewery last time in Munich and that position has only been cemented. Super clean drinking helles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ayinger Bierstuberl and bottled. Gold color, clear, big candid white head. Aroma is pleasingly malty/cookies with hay and soft floral hops and a woody note. Floral, fresh. Taste is smooth, properly balanced, clean finish a bit dusty. Average carbonation. Finish is slightly sharp, very subtly sourish with is something i like in lagers as they get very thirstquencing. Excellent helles, ultra clean. Bottled, quite old (bbd 02/15) doesn’t lose its grip.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. The beer is malt and grain dominated, just a bit of sweetness, a faint but warm hoppy aroma that seems salty/savoury and at times even a tad smoky. The body is quite solid for a lager. Some residual malts and very light hops in the finish. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I wanted to try their famous Doppelbock, but the bottleshop only had the lager. Oh well. Herbal and floral aroma, taste has some hoppy bitterness, with a bit of a buttery aftertaste in the finish. Very mild and very easily drinkable, without being too watery - a perfect beer for getting drunk at parties. For the style it’s really, really good, actually.

Zugegebenermaßen hatte ich mir etwas viel süffigeres und aromatischeres vorgestellt, gerade da ich Helle sehr mag. Dieses hier ist ein Bombardement an Vanille und Buttrigkeit, doch manchmal ist weniger mehr und dies hier bildet keine Ausnahme. Leider zu viel des Guten, aber alles in allem natürlich qualitativ klasse.

Mild - malziges Lager mit angenehmen Gras- oder Heunoten. Sehr süffig, im Nachgeschmack einige für mich unpassend saure Noten. Dennoch lecker!
