UPDATED: DEC 19, 2018 Pivo u flaši.
Sladna i suhovoćna aroma.
Okus je sladan i slatkast , a možda i malko Amberast (znači da se malo osjeti karamela) , i nešto je gorkastiji nego šta sam očekivao.
...eh , jedino šta mi fali malo punoće i tijelu ... al' svejedno sasvim solidno pivo..
..i treba ga piti kad se malo zagrije , onda ta fina sladnost dolazi do izražaja.. putnik (3) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 8, 2018 does not count

Where Purchased: 500ml bottle from LCBO #310. Consumed: from a draught glass. Aroma: Smells malty, yeast and a bit of fruit. Appearance : filtered medium gold red colour with thin head that lastst to the end with sticky lacing. Taste: Good malts up front with some sweet follow up. Palate : full body. Slight bittersweet aftertaste. Decent fine carbonation. Overall: Another great beer from this brewer. Well balanced, lots of malts, and sweet aftertaste. I was glad to try and hope to buy again next year. MB. The Beer "Bear"on. eRock_2013 (613) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2018
Another solid and refined offering from Ayinger, well-executed and true to style. Poured a faintly hazy burnished bronze and amber color, with a white foamy head that gradually receded to a small ring of bubbles. Aroma of caramel apple and other fruity and bready flavors, very autumnal. Taste is caramel malt forward as expected, with fruity and nutty accents and a cleansing whiff of alcohol that leaves a dry finish. Has a bit of floral hops in the aftertaste. Overall not the most intense flavor compared to other oktoberfests, but features an exceptionally complex range of malty, fruity, and other tasting notes. nephirem (953) - CROATIA - OCT 28, 2018
Bottle, 0.5l. As Ayinger Kirtabier. Clear copper pour, two finger frothy off-white head. Very good retention, thick lacing as it goes down. Nice and fresh on the nose, strong grassy and grainy character, sweet and nicely bready.
Thin to medium body, very soft carbonation. Silky smooth mouthfeel and texture, this one goes down quite smoothly. Mild bittersweet taste. Aroma is mostly grainy with nice touch of herbal spiciness to it. Notes of wheat, a bit bready. Mild grassy hops and a bit of caramel malt in the background. Regular finish, a bit peppery with a touch of alcohol.
Overall, pretty good. Not a brew that will blow you away, but it's clean and nicely executed. Quite drinkable. Lore (3438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 19, 2018
Clear or slightly hazy orange to amber colour, one inch of stable off-white head; aroma of wet grains, some floral and caramel notes; taste of bread, malty and caramel sweetness, slight fruitiness and hints of roasted nuts; correct one azzurro (887) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2018
Part of the LCBO Autumn 2018 Beer Program, I asked my local LCBO to send me one or a few down from Toronto, I ended up with a case. :) I gave one to each of my baseball colleagues yesterday, when playing in October... A good beer, nice balanced taste, somewhat spicy, in the line of the amber/scotch ale with a faint bock twist.
