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 .

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Amber colour, big creamy off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and quite sweet malts along with some slight earth, grass and some herbal notes. Flavour is big time bready malts, grassy hops and some gentle floral and herbal notes as well. Rather big bitterness in the finish. Quite bitter for being an Oktoberfest/Märzen beer.

hirigalzkar (2265) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours brownish orange with a small and fast dissapearing white head. Spicy (ginger) yet sweet (milk chocolate) aroma. The taste has a lot of the bitter-sweet marzipan notes that are usually found in bockbiers. Flowery hops. Warming. Overall: darker... heavier... and not as refreshing as Ayinger beers usually are.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2012
(Bottled, "Ayinger Kirtabier") Hazy red-copper with a medium, firm head. Toffee-bready-malty nose with buttery diacetyl hints and a touch of metal. Flavor is very bready-malty, sweetish and toffeeish, yet the sweetness remains well in balance, and there is also some ripe fruitiness. Medium to full body, soft and foamy CO2, filling palate. Very nice, filling and balanced autumn beer with nothing irritating, but the faintest touch of metal in the nose. 5336

50 cl bottle @ home as ”Ayinger Kirtabier”, BBE 05/2013
Aroma is somewhat sour with earthy notes and some sweetish, grainy malt. Flavour is somewhat tart and sour with lemon, some grainy malt and hints of apples. Not your typical Märzen, feels more like a kellerbier.

TBone (12479) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Bottled 500ml (Alko, BB 05/2013)
"Ayinger Kirtabier". Slightly hazy amber color, steady creamy off-white head. Woody malty nose with hints of caramalt. Perharps some vegetable-sourness lurking in the background. Medium-bodied. Caramalt, bready maltyness, some leafy hoppyness in the aftertaste. Solid Märzen, although not the best of Ayinger.

Beerheart65 (978) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Hazy deep amberwith big frothy head that covers aromas, medium long head. Mild aroma has bread. Taste is bitterish, slightly sweet, spicy, light to medium body, fizzy bit thin feel and carbonation, medium long finish is bit sweet, ripe fruits here also, some nuts and caramel. Ok beer, still I feel that something is missing..

lusikka (6075) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
500 ml bottle as Ayinger Kirtabier.
Pours an unclear amber orange colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, toasted nuts and grass. Flavour of grainy malts, toasted nuts, chocolate, bread, caramel and some dry wood. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a rough, grainy malty finish. Quite close to a Dunkel.

kevnic2008 (7680) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2012
Very nice amber appearance with a malty and sweet taste that finishes clean and smooth. Easy to drink and a decent beer.
