3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
