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 .

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.

MarkoNm (772) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a clear coppery color, topped with a decent beige colored head. Mild malty aroma with some notes of caramel in the background. Taste is sweet, caramel notes, finishing with slightly roasty feel and medium bitterness. Nice one.

veceo (651) - CROATIA - NOV 18, 2014
Cloudy red color, average sized beige head that quickly disappeared. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of malt, yeast, dark fruits. Taste is also malty with caramel and strawberries. Medium sweet taste, very little bitterness. Nice enough.

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Hazy amber body. Sweet fruity alcohol dominated malt caramel aroma and flavor with hints of almonds and a suitable amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

Saeglopur (449) - 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 (9618) - 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.

Kirtabier. slightly orange with a white head. Herbs . Autumn feeling. nothing special. not worth it.

Kosmokrator (517) - 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...
