Bottle. Basing this purely off the style, it passes with flying colors.
A nice fresh aroma and taste of floral / grassy hop some citrus and caramel.
A well deveoped German Pils. hayduke (5187) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Poured clear golden in color with foamy off-white head and light lacing. Fruity, malty and a bit of floral hops in the nose. The flavor is similar with fruit, flowers, and some bitterness. Bitter finish. Right to style and good. kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2011
33cl Bottle. Appearance is clear, golden yellow color with medium, foamy, off-white head. Aroma is grainy, sweet malts and grassy hops. Taste is similar with a strong grain and sweet malts, some hay, up-front grass hops. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, lively carbonation, slightly acidic, and a long, dry finish. Definitely a top-notch Pils in a sea of mediorcity. mjs (7156) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2011
(Draught at St Urho’s Pub, 20111101) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, grain and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, grain, malts, mild sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy, bitter and mildly malty. A basic pils with nice hops. reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2011
500ml bottle pours pale golden color with a small white head and some spots of lacing. Aroma is light grains and floral hops. Taste is light malty sweetness and a crisp modest hoppy bitterness. Decently balanced and carbonated with a light to medium body. Average brew that is easy to drink.

On tap at a random al fresco stop during our Munich wanderings. Clear bright yellow gold, thick lasting white crown. Aroma is pleasant grassy floral hops and cereal grains. Palate is clean and fresh, light cereal accented by fragrant grassy floral hops delivering a medium bitterness in the finish. The best lager of the journey at this point.

An above average flavored brew. Not going to knock your socks off, but an easy drinker, very session able. Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2011
Clear golden colour, white head. Fresh malty aroma, quite floral hops. Flavour crisp malty, slight hoppy bitterness, fruity and floral notes. Finish light but pleasantly bitter. Refreshing and nice.

(Draught @ Ayinger Speis und Trank, München)
Clear yellow with a white head. Spicy, floral hop aroma. Taste is dry with a spicy hop finish. MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This spritzy Pils promotes straw-like cereals onto a grassy, spruce-y hop character for a highly flavorful and refined tasting experience.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sticky head of foam covers the clear pale golden.
-This is yet another world-class lager from Ayinger. Bravo! If only more ratings would come from a tap close to the source, not from bottles exported across the pond…
-The hop finish is long and highly pleasant, emboldened by the dryness.
-Every ingredient is clearly showcased from nose to finish.
On tap at Ayinger Speis und Trank, Munich.
