Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Medium amber with large tan head. Light molasses and barley malt flavor with moderate hops finish. A much bigger flavor than most beers of this style. Excellent.

4.1
DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle from Peace St. Market, Raleigh, NC. Another great Ayinger beer. Copper pour, with caramel malt, toffee, and spice aromas. Tastes caramel malty, with some cinnamon and spices in the finish, coupled with a firm mouthfeel and great balance and complexity. More hops as it warms. Great.

3.3
cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Tap @ The Forge Foco. Poured into a goblet, huh? Pours a dark, clear orange appearance with a cream colored head. Sweet fruity, creamy, straw, toffee, a touch boozy, straw aroma. Kind of metallic, somewhat dry. Straw, earthy, grassy, creamy caramel, somewhat floral hoppy, toasty malty flavor. Not sure what is up with the high metallicity but it’s off putting.

3.5
pivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle (perfectly delivered by joss): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, medium-sized off-white head; toasted malt, sweet-malt and some fruitiness in the aroma; light to medium-bodied, solid sweet-bitter flavour; becomes a bit drier towards the end: roasted malt, dried fruit and moderate hop-bitterness in the finish; almost a bit brandy-like and warming aftertaste. A goody, that reminds You of a diluted Doppelbock.....

3.3
allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber gold with a thin white head. Aromas of malty toffee, faint green grass. Taste is sweet up front, grassy bitterness at the back. Sweet finish.

3.4
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Clear light gold pour with a small frothy white head. Sweet nose with some bread. Smooth palate. Taste is lightly toasted bread, light lemon, and a touch of caramel. Really good stuff.
