2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500 ml bottle from http://hitimewine.com) This poured a cloudy pale yellow with a rocky white head. Aroma: some hay, sweet maltiness, hint of sour. Sloppy foam lacing. Mouthfeel slightly fizzy. Taste: mild citrus bite, faintly doughy, finishes slightly sour. Not real impressed, wonder if this is an older bottle. My 100th rating - "Jahrhundert"...get it?...clever, huh?!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sparkling gold that has a fat head on top. Aroma is both grainy and grassy with sign of malt. Flavor is bitter and organic with light sweet undertone. Has considerable amount of grain in the flavor that adds some character and distinguishes this dortmunder from the rest.

bottle. pours a light golden body with carbonation galore and a large fluffy white head. aroma is pleasantly subtle - fresh grassy hops and soft cookie bread malts. up front it’s quite hoppy but it’s a very nice comforting bitterness along with big doughy cookie flavours. the finish is long and bitter. very good.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml brown bottle available from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Cloudy light yellow lager having large lasting rocky head with excellent lacing. Clean sweet malt aroma with hints of spice and fruity esters (peach?). Soft carbonation. Medium-bodied that starts with slight sharp, tart, nutty malt flavor with light hop bitterness and finishes dry with light bitterness of average duration. A delicious refreshing drinkable beer.

I thought this to be a pretty good lager. It was nice and light, crisp, etc. It’s a little overpriced IMO.

Very light light yellow color with a thin white head.Strong yeast grass aroma. Dry caramel bread like taste. Slightly bitter hops balanced nicely with Malt. One of the best offerings I have had from Ayinger. Highly recommended. I got this at Great Spirits in Huntsville, AL.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy pale yellow with a thick and fizzy white head. Citrus aroma smells of mandarin oranges, banana, wheat, and grassy hops. Delicous, almost hefeweizen taste. Very creamy with a slight sweetness. Grassy hops and earth tones also dominate the palate. Nice crisp finish is dry and slightly bitter.

Pour is bright golden yellow straw color with a big dense beautiful white head that faded into a bright white skin...smell is nicely hoppy with dry grassy notes...taste is indeed breadlike, almost with some pumpernickel notes with a lightly sweet quality fading into a bitter dry finish....
