COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In October, each year we celebrate Kirta-Halbe. 1999 was a very special year because we opened our handsome new brewery and Beer Adventure on October 15, one day before Kirta-Halbe. Our Ayinger Kirta-Halbe label, by Dieter Hanitzsch shows Bavarian Minister President Dr. Edmund Stoiber with our own Bräu von Aying, Franz Inselkammer in front of the new brewery. For the opening, Mr. Stoiber addressed more than 1000 friends, customers and community leaders .

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio merket Kirtabier. Drukket hjemme 28 Sep 12. Mørk gyldenbrun. Litt skum som raskt flater ut. God søt karamellaroma. Antydning til litt frukt. Smaken brukbart fyldig. Innholdsrik. Litt krydder. Undertone av frukt. Plommer. Blir etterhvert litt syrlig. Godt øl som bringer fram minner fra en av mine ølhøydepunkter: Sommerkveld i bryggerihagen blant gode venner, godt øl og god mat.

Bottle from Alko (as Kirtabier). Thick copper color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, dough, toast and earthy aroma. Sour finish with bread. Decent brew, yet not my favorite style.

olio (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2012
50 cl bottle as "Ayinger Kirtabier". BBE 05/2013.
Pours slightly hazy golden color with a medium-sized head. Aroma has some stuffy fruits, earth, nuts, fruity malts, some yeast and a bit of caramel. Flavor of fruits, malts and hay, faint nutty notes and caramel on the flavor as well. Bitter and dry palate lead to a long, grassy and bitter finish. Decent oktoberfest, but slightly too stuffy for my taste.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
50cl bottle from Alko. Poured amber w. a steady white head. Malty, biscuity aroma, but also some berry-like notes. Flavor has bready malt, hops, light alcohol. Drinkable, but alcohol coming through too much.

TET (1760) - FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
A beautiful, reddish beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma of smooth malts, toffee, hint of berries and of smoke. Nice aroma, but it’s difficult to get out aromas. Taste is malty and bready, hint of roastiness and smoke, aftertaste is nicely dry. Medium bodied, nice to drink. High-quality and enjoyable beer again from Ayinger.
