Reminded me of a Belgian White in color. Pale yellow with some haze, but no sediment. Nice white foam head and excellent lacings. Aroma is floral and mildly malty. There is no fruit flavor that I can taste. Beer has excellent balance. Flavor is light and crisp. Finish is clean with no bitterness. Best served cold. Nice.

Palate has some apple notes along with traditional lager taste. For a second I thought I tasted belgian, but maybe not. Good body, but less than the other Ayingers.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2005 In the Centruy Celebration Bavarian Lager. Huge off white head. Tons of carbonation bubbles, yet they are not felt in the mouth. Nice golden color. Slight citrus aroma and flavor. Otherwise, a little spice. This is better than most lagers.

A good German beer. Not as skunky tasting as most German beers. It has a clean, crisp, malty taste with a slightly dry finish. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice light bready aroma witha a touch of citrus. Large white head with ok carbonation. Spectacular lacing. Slightly cloudy, pale gold color. Flavor is mild but good that is light and crisp with citrus, yeast and some hops. Finish is a little dry and and a little bitter. This beer has more flavor and character than it looks like it should have. A plesant surprise.

Very pale yellow out of the bottle with an egg white fowm head. Light yeast nose. Light citrus malts with a clean finish. Nothing to detract but not much to excite me either.

Big Head Lemon Juice Color. Tasted like a very thin Wheat beer to me. Not bad just not what I expected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light-golden / deep-straw and cloudy whitish with a decent head. Moderate carbonation, even lively at times. Sharply spicy, bitter and a little sour ... malt base has a little trouble keeping up. Overall, nicely spicy and sweet, but a little too bitter (especially in the aftertaste) and slightly unbalanced.
