laiti (6828) - Helsinki, - FEB 15, 2013
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.

harrisoni (14856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
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.

JaKeAFC (665) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2015
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.

dnicolaescu (1156) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 17, 2015
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.

niquillis (1617) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours golden with fast diminishing white head. Quite dry, well carbonated, average helles. Bit boring.

rotaman14 (269) - Potsdam, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
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.

lusikka (6961) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Draught @ Ayinger am Platzl, Munich. Pours a golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of grainy malts, bread and some sweetness. Flavourbof strong grainy malts, fresh grass, some mild herbal notes and mild sweetness. Light bodied. Dry grassy finish. Simple and refreshing.

MichaelAwesome (5356) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
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.

Ambla (38) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Mild - malziges Lager mit angenehmen Gras- oder Heunoten. Sehr süffig, im Nachgeschmack einige für mich unpassend saure Noten. Dennoch lecker!

McTapps (5370) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle as Ayinger Lager Hell, bought at Getränkemarkt Beck in Reutlingen. The beer has a clear deep golden colour with an low steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, straw, white bread, malt, mild fruits and hay. Easy drinkable with a refreshing finish. Solid, yet average Helles.
