Had this at Ayinger and between Forschungbrau, Andechs and Ayinger it came it a third (which is liking saying who was better: Mickey, Willie or ’The Duke’. If you go to Munchen, stop in Ayinger (they even rent rooms and the food is great).

Looks fine, smells fine. this is a pretty tasty pils. Light, a good hop presence and bite and quite dry as well. Tasty and sessionable.

One of the Best PILSENER of the World! It is South Bavarian style of Pilsener - it means more malty than North Germany Style. Very delicious hoppy and malty aroma with touch of fresh hay and corn. In palate suprisingly full body,it is malty, sappy with hints of minty of pressed hops cone. Long dry and sappy finish. Fresh carbonation (fresh und spritzig). Best aperitiv! Best served in the Centre of Ayinger Village in brewery biergarten Liebhard´s Keller (fresh drought).
All products from Ayinger are ones of the best beers in Bayern. All categories (Hell, Export, Weiss, Ur-Weiss, Doppelbock). Especially Bräu - Hell.

a potent pils, points for potentcy...biting taste in the back of the throat leaves me thirsty for more, that's a good sign

My Bottom Line :
This spritzy Pils promotes straw-like cereals onto a grassy, spruce-y hop character for a highly flavorful and refined tasting experience.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sticky head of foam covers the clear pale golden.
-This is yet another world-class lager from Ayinger. Bravo! If only more ratings would come from a tap close to the source, not from bottles exported across the pond…
-The hop finish is long and highly pleasant, emboldened by the dryness.
-Every ingredient is clearly showcased from nose to finish.
On tap at Ayinger Speis und Trank, Munich.

Tap at the Trank in Munich. Rather pale to medium gold with a fine, medium head and a few bubbles. Herbal, floral hop nose, crackery malt. Clean, fruity flavor, bready. Crisp hops are very herbal with some lemon. Great prickly hop finish, peppery, spicy, herbal. Perfect soft carbonation and clean body. Snappily bitter, lovely. Only the nose is a bit too restrained.

Head retention could be better.
Flowery hoppy / bohemian nose.
Fullbodied with relatively low carbonation.
Tasty and clean.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 For sure, there is no doubt this is a good brewery, but this beer was not as good as the lagres. I mean, it has not that sour smell, but it was ok after all. I liked it, it was clear and strong.

Had this at the Ayinger am Platzl, Munchen, Germany 26-01-08 A good clean tasting light golden pilsner that was really fresh and crisp, don’t normally go for Pilsners that much but this I’ll make an exception for.
