3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 mL bottle, tulip glass. Small, fizzy, white head diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing. Hazy, lemon colored body. Moderate lemon / lime and flower hops. Light bread malt; light dough yeast. Slight spice in the nose. Incredibly balanced sweetness and bitterness are moderate throughout. Slight citric acid adds to the crispness of the finish. Finish is somewhat dry and has a long duration. Light / medium body is watery but not watered down. Carbonation adds to the lightness of this beer without being distracting. Flavors are crisp and bright as is the aroma. Appearance is a little thin, but the body is pretty close to being perfect for this beer (I'd like it to be a little fuller with slightly more carbonation). Very pleasing and would likely be excellent with citrusy / spicy seafood. Not your run of the mill boring lager.

Quiet fruity is this Ayinger. Grass and hop flowers .Huge white gentle light foam floating on top of clear pale beer. Light sweet rye with made of good yeast, spiced with gentle perfect for Helles hops. Gentle and light but not with out style and complexity .Slightly citrus hop finish.

I saw the name Ayinger and I went for it. Im not a fan of this style but I am impressed. Aroma is of oranges and lemons. Appearance is a cloudy yellow. Flavor is quite lemony and crisp. This is very similar to a witbier to me. Palate is tart and somewhat sweet. This is a great beer for summer. This brewery has really impressed me so far. Good job.

Not a bad golden lager by any shot. I'd say this probably ranks for the style of golden lagers excludng pilsners up with the Max Lagers Reserve Lager. There's not a lot of hops going on, but there is a maltiness that is pleasant and lightly sweet. The body is probably on the darker end of the golden style, but the carbonation was plentiful, but not overbearing. A nicely crafted lager.

Pours a pale yellow/orange color with an odd tint of light green(!?!) The aroma and flavor were subtle...some nice peppery, malty sweet, hoppy tones present. Light feel...nice overall.

This must be the lightest coloured German beer I have tried.Very, very pale-my first impression was of a beer without any character.But I was wrong. Unlike some other reviewers I didn't
find a large head upon pouring. What I did get was a clean tasting summery beer. Very gentle with hints of citrus and a fruity aftertaste. Very different from what I expected and very pleasant.
