3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very thick head, cloudy blond pour. Taste is somewhat malty and sweet. Odd finish, almost like a malt liquor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear straw with a awesome white head made from pinhead sized bubbles with a nice lacing. Nose is clean, malty with a smidge of lemon. Ohh man, pure malt heaven, earthy and spicy hops, a lemon twang, almost full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Awesome lager. I drank this way too cold and its still this good.

Straw-colored body beneath a bigass head. Aroma is malty/bready with a touch of lemon. Flavor is same, with the sweetness at the start, and finishing with a decent dry German-hop bitterness. Hint of astringency.

Sparkling light golden color, some frothy white head. Yeasty, big fruity and grassy nose. Big malty, yeasty body, bitterness and grassy notes in the finish. Very nice lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw gold with a good rocky fluffy head. Sweet malty aromas with some nice hoppiness. Hop bitterness becomes more noticable as you drink but still well balanced by the bready malt. Soft and smooth at the end with a creamy fluffiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale-yellow with faint green clear colour over a medium white head. Faint floral hops and bigger malty popcorn aromas. Smooth soft more bitter, less sweet palate. Stronger malty and bitter flavours and clean dry bitter finish. I got no hops at the end. It’s a beer and nothing to get really excited about.

I’d say this is pretty average as lagers go, and best of all, it’s cheap at my local! Very smooth and not bitter at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is not one of Ayinger’s stronger efforts, though I’d rather have a bad beer from Ayinger than the best beer from many other breweries. This is pretty malty for being so light in color. Decent lager that’s a bit fizzy and a touch bitter.
