50 cl bottle @ home as ”Ayinger Lager Hell”, BBE 04/2013graziano85 (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 21, 2013
Rather foamy stuff to be a German lager; started to come out of the bottle a moment after opening and my Ayinger glass was half head half liquid after the pour. Very bright appearance. Aroma has butter, some grassy hops, hints of herbs and grain. Flavour has butter, some harsh gooseberry bush notes, grain, hints of grassy hops and distant herbal notes. The hops feel a bit old and harsh here, perhaps would have been better fresh.
A yellow beer with a normal white head. The aroma is hoppy, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops as well as grass. Also some bitterness.

50cl bottle, Bierzwerg des Monats Dez 2012. - Pours clear bright gold, nice head, modest aroma. - Crisp, somewhat dry&sweetish pilsener type Helles: decent hop bitterness with unusual rich marzipan malt notes, some yeasty acidity. All in all unique tasting pilsner/Helles, not completely thirst-quenching (too dry &sweet for that), yet full of taste. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2013
In der Nase Getreidenoten, etwas muffig, pappig. Mild-süßlicher Antrunk. Mitte mild-süß, kaum Herbe. Abgang verhalten würzig und moderate Bitterkeit. Trinkbar.

Gravity cask at Ayinger Speis und Trank, Munich: Color indeterminable (served in a ceramic mug). Persistent silky white foam. Inviting spicy hop nose with a mild note of tea, licorice and earthy malt. Very rustic. Soft, natural, tiny-bubbled carbonation. Opens with a snappy cookie and dusty yeast signature which sits atop a crunchy mineral backbone. Malt is crackly, though considerably deep with a bouncy cookie edge which shows good melanoidin girth beneath the earthier and snappier straw notions. Intriguing dollop of creamed coffee entwined with a hazelnut earthiness, ensues. Splash of fresh peach and a dab of cotton candy adds further mystique, as does faint plum skin, with delicate acids and all. Loads of dry malt augment the through-the-roof quaffability. Plentiful sassy hop spice is sprinkled throughout. Closes nicely hoppy with intricately-woven earth and spice elements which beautifully match the snappy and gently earthy, bitter edge of the Munich malt. Perhaps a wee bit thin, but overall a very juicy, well-balanced example with tremendously soft and fine carbonation. Drinks much more like a kellerbier than a helles, as the hops are more spicy than herbal/floral, the dark malt is rustic, and the yeast quite dusty. Would gladly make this my everyday drinker.

Clear golden with a small head. Simple and crisp. A bit of honey and malt. Not a lot going on but enjoyable and refreshing. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Gift from S.J. A mild brew with notes of honey, grass, pepper and malt.
The finish was a crip bite.

500ml bottle. Aroma is hay, grass, citrus. Appearance is pale golden with a nice white foam. Taste is light sour and sweet but mostly bitter. However, very light in all tastes. Has a strong carbonation and feels very refreshing. Overall a very nice Helles.
