COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formally called Kirta-Halbe. 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.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
500ml bottle ’Kirtabier’ from beers of Europe. Poured carefully into an old Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall, handled glass tankard at home on 10th Jan 2016. Slight haze to the dark, dull orange coloured body: on top a full and deep foam blanket. Light malty nose and flavour, semi-sweet with a mini bittering finish. Decent enough, it’s a long time since I had an Oktoberfest bier. I must try to find them more often when they are available/around.

Tap@5p. Amber orange, light hazy. Malty dry fruity nose. Some dried orange, earthy malty, quite clean though. Med bodied, flavourful, malty slight huskey. Dry toffee, light syrup. Ok malty german beer. Well made, feels traditional, pure etc.

ogivlado (6815) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana as Ayinger Kirtabier. Shiny amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, dusty caramel nose. Sweetish malty, caramel, slightly fruity and herbal with dry bitter finish. Nothing special here.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
At the Bräustüberl. Hazy amber-copper color with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, spicy, "herb". Reminds me of the smell of my grandfather?s stoneware when I was a kid and only smelled the beer. Taste is caramel, grains, it stays mild and creamy, but with a proper bitterness. A challenging Oktoberfest Beer. Way more interesting than HB or Hacker (also: unfiltered, that?s where the creamy mouthfeel comes from).

Koelschtrinker (14596) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
Herber, mild würziger Antrunk. Diese steigt deutlich an, die Malzigkeit bleibt dabei gering. Karamelliger Mittelteil mit herbem Hintergrund, süffig. 10/9/9/10//9
