Pours a straw gold with a finger of foam.
I smell noble hops and the familiar Ayinger yeast. Cracker malt.
Nice and hoppy, dry and crisp, with cracker malt that balances well with the hops. Somewhat spicy.
Delicious and clean Pilsner.
Tap @ Wirtshaus Ayingers, Munich. TAR (2793) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2017
Pours clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grassy hoppy and slightly grainy, some citrus notes. Flavor is grassy bitter and a bit buttery, grain and pale malt notes. Crisp and refreshing Pils.
Very fresh bottle. Clear yellow. Pasty and creamy white foam persists to the final drop. Saffron, lemon, flowers, minerals, honeysuckle, pepper, and new-mown hay encompass the aroma. Underlying blemishes of white grape, gravel, apple juice, and DMS. Fluffy and creamy carbonation. Refined malt paves the way with a luxuriantly-textured mouthfeel as it gracefully cradles the herbal-floral-spicy hop medley with a pillowy softness. Minerals come through and vivify the malt while amplifying the finespun lemony characteristics which soon develop. Malt is deceptively weightless with its layer of toasted baguette atop daintier hay dust dimensions. While it’s exquisitely balanced from start to finish, the hops are anything but shy as they generate a peppery-herbal scratch, yet artfully remain in lockstep with the polished malt. Quite clean other than a minor note of DMS and gravel. Not a trace of huskiness is evident, and the malt is rich in detail. Hay dust coats the tongue and enriches the dry, mineral-spiked finish as delicate floral notes linger alongside an uplifting “airiness” reminiscent of fresh baguette flesh. An effortlessly sluggable and notably mineralic pils that would be world class if the fermentation character were just a smidgeon cleaner. Lovely rustic malt character that elicits thoughts of standing in a field surrounded by fresh cut haystacks. And it’d be difficult finding better balance anywhere in the beer world. The purity of the water in this is virtually peerless and uniquely Bavarian. If Blaugies brewed a pils, I have a feeling it might resemble something close to this. Quite charming. vinivini (3056) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 9, 2017
