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 .

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 2, 2008
On tap. Pours a med. amber with a long lasting white froth. Nice lacing. The aroma is freshly baked biscuits along with a really nice spicy hop note. The body is med. with a good level of CO2. The flavors are soo smooth. Lots of caramel and toast. Some spice but the malt plays the main role here. What a beer. What a condition to have it. Amazing. I wish I could brew a marzen this good.

Saeglopur (364) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 1, 2014
Draught at Ayingers Speis & Trank, Munich. Dark copper, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head, that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel, bread, grains, grass, roast, honey, some fruity hops, slight spices. Taste is about the same. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a lively carbonation and it finishes grainy and sweet malty, slightly roasty. Very good! A pretty above average Märzen, more in the traditional style, with full, caramelic malts. Very well balanced and with the distinct smoothness many Ayinger beers are offering, while being very fresh.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2013
500ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2013)
Super malty aroma. Taste is even maltier, pure barley. Plenty of yeastiness too. Hazy orange, fizzy carbonation. Then gets a bit flat. Love the malts, but it feels a bit wrong in the mouth. Malt-juice.

Kosmokrator (493) - ITALY - MAR 21, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Alla spina. Torbido color arancio con un pannoso strato di schiuma bianca. Sentori di agrumi, pesca, luppolo e zucchero di canna, gusto mediamente amarognolo con note fruttate e "panose". Corpo medio lieve, struttura acquosa, un po’ poco persistente; è profumata e piuttosto buona ma troppo poco intensa sia nell’aroma che nel gusto. Da riprovare in bottiglia, chissà...

Dark orange colour, white/yellow head. Not a special beer, Ayinger do much better ones.... quite boring.

Kaatuu kolpakkoon rennolla kädellä kaadettuna kirkkaana, punaoranssina ja parin sormen levyisella vaahdolla, joka katoaa suht nopeasti. Haju on hiivaleipäisen maltainen, ruohoinen, hieman hedelmäinen ja taustalla on ihan lievää toffeeta ja pähkinää. Maku on viljaisen maltainen, makean toffeinen, pähkinäinen ja ruohoinen. Suutuntuma on suht täyteläinen ja hiilihappoinen. Kokonaisuutena tämä on perushyvä lager, mallasrunko on mukavan täyteläinen ja juotavuus hyvä. Suht kevyttä, mutta maistuvaa.

Erasmus_ro (1399) - Alabama, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle as Ayinger Kirtabier. Pours a hazy dark orange amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is a lot of honey bread. Honey and bready malts. The taste is much of the same with the bready maltiness being much stronger and turning a bit darker. Honey is present, but not as strong as in the aroma. Not very sweet which is a good thing. A lot of beers flavored with honey tend to be much too sweet. Light herbal hoppiness in the finish and aftertaste. Palate is medium and not very carbonated.

Rune (8173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2012
Many thanks to Finn for yet another beer gift. The 500ml bottle, as Ayinger Kirtabier, pours a close to clear copper coloured body. Spotty lacing from a decent off-white head that stays well. Modest aroma of dried fruits and earthy malts. Leafy hops with almond, semi-sweet malts and dried fruits in the flavour character promoting a taste of bittersweet marmalade. Lingering and smooth mid-dry, bitter end. Medium bodied. Fits the season. And, as always, a pleasure to drink an Ayinger beer (Tromsø, 18.10.2012).
