Koelschtrinker (18349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 6, 2015
Sehr milder Malzantrunk, in dem karamellige Noten kaum zum Vorschein kommen. Spät einen Ticken malziger, leicht süß, weiterhin kaum würzig. Im Nachhall noch einmal würziger, dennoch insgesamt entäuschend. 8/8/8/6/8/6
Earlier Rating: 10/5/2015 Total Score: 3

Bottled 500ml (Alko, BB 05/2013)
"Ayinger Kirtabier". Slightly hazy amber color, steady creamy off-white head. Woody malty nose with hints of caramalt. Perharps some vegetable-sourness lurking in the background. Medium-bodied. Caramalt, bready maltyness, some leafy hoppyness in the aftertaste. Solid Märzen, although not the best of Ayinger.

500ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2013)
Super malty aroma. Taste is even maltier, pure barley. Plenty of yeastiness too. Hazy orange, fizzy carbonation. Then gets a bit flat. Love the malts, but it feels a bit wrong in the mouth. Malt-juice.

Rich orange, tiny head. Woody aroma. Nutty edge to a dry woody taste. Rich, burnt corners too. Soft palate. Smooth grainy body. Very tasty.

bhensonb (14475) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2007
500 ml. bottle. Nice bready aroma accompanied by floral hop. Amber color with a frothy off-white head. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Flavors of caramel, bread and flowers/herbs. Very smooth. Slightly caramel sweet. This carries into the finish, but there are floral hop notes to help balance that. Something of floral, herbal tastes at the end of the finish. It is really very tasty.
