Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana as Ayinger Kirtabier. Shiny amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, dusty caramel nose. Sweetish malty, caramel, slightly fruity and herbal with dry bitter finish. Nothing special here.

500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Lager-like aroma of sweet pale malt and faint floral hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel and graham cracker blended with floral and mildly citrusy hops. Not my favorite style but this is the clear winner in its category.

Aroma is like a wonderfully malted grain. Bready and rich smell. Clear ver color with good head. Taste is well rounded and very drinkable. Very enjoyable autumn beer. Excellent brew

SinH4 (4401) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2016 At the Bräustüberl, as Kirta. Hazy amber-copper color with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, spicy, "herb". Reminds me of the smell of my grandfather?s stoneware when I was a kid and only smelled the beer. Taste is caramel, grains, it stays mild and creamy, but with a proper bitterness. A challenging Oktoberfest Beer. Way more interesting than HB or Hacker (also: unfiltered, that?s where the creamy mouthfeel comes from). 6-5-7-4-15

Bottle of the US Oktoberfest-Märzen (slightly old), thanks Koelschtrinker, next to a fresh Kirta bottle. Clear golden-orange color with white head. Already a bit oxidized. Caramel. Obviously not fresh anymore, but since the bottle also has some sediment, I suppose the alias is fine. 7-3-7-3-14

It should be noted that Kirta is way better on tap than bottled. Had the 2016 release both on tap and bottled - tap was immensely good this time. 7-5-8-4-15

Mortlach (2275) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 18, 2015
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours amber, clean and filtered, with a good off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, bread crust, ok. Flavour is very sweet, a bit unbalanced, malty, bready but nice. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Ok.
