Bottle straight from Aying brewery outlet, just put on sale.
Amber color, cloudy, big white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty with noble hops backing, light caramel and berries, cookies, light almond. Taste is sweetish and well balanced, finish is rather dry. Smooth creamy texture, some dust, medium body, soft carbonation. Nice and lovely as expectable from Ayinger, glad enough to have found this in my last trip to Aying.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color, slightly sweet, nice medium body -- very, very drinkable. Ayinger has one attribute that I have never tasted in any beer -- no "after" anything, it literally disappears from your palate. It smells and tastes great going down and then it was like you just drank fresh water. My wife, who is not a beer drinker, noticed it first and liked Ayinger (only other beer she will take half a glass of is Guinness).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 bottle as Ayinger Kirtabier. Appearance is amber and cloudy with a nice head. At first you feel some sweet malts but then the hops will dry out things in the end. It is like a Pilsener just a bit more darker and, well, more alcohol. Quite easy to drink, which sounds dangerous.
