After obtaining a fresh bottle.. wow. Big white head, cloudy yellow colour. Sweet bready malts, yeast, and spicey, almost clovish hops. Well balanced and refrshing.

Straw yellow with just enough haze to fault it on appearance. Nice head which gives off a malty aroma with just a touch of hoppy spice. The flavor is clean and crisp as it should be. Another consistently good product from this brewer.

Wow what a nice Helles bier... it really wowed me that anything like this could come out of a bottle shipped across the pond.... really nice with a full malty body, yet refreshingly lite.

Nice golden color with a big, creamy head.
Nose is malty with hints of spice, hops.
Nice malty taste with supporting floral hoppiness. Very refreshing Dortmunder style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
