The dry bitterness of classic pilsner makes this a perfect, pre-dinner drink. Although we borrowed the style from Bohemia, our pils is classsic Bavarian, made partially with barley we grow ourselves, a blend of fresh Hallertau and Tetnang hops and our unique St. Andreas mineral water. The vivacious color is reflective of the barley fields that surround our brewery. The head is light and thick and leaves a beautiful Bavarian lace on the empty glass. . In the mouth, our pils achives balance and roundness, without the hops overpowering the fruitiness of the malt.

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).

It is a good pils. We feel the hop and the beer is not heavy. The problem is that you say pils and the people say is not a good beer. The colour is yellow but transparent. The carbonation is right. This beer is perfect with a good meal with meat.

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.

On tap at Ayinger bar Munich. Now that is a pretty looking beer . Bright gold lasting white head. Peppery hop over an impeccable super drinkable base. Light toast aroma. Finish smacks you upside with lemon pepper hop. Amazingly good. Clean super drinkable. Superb.

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