3.88/5  rDev -2%

Pours very pale, straw yellow, big foamy head, lots of apparent fizziness, nice retention.
Smell of earthy maltiness, a bit sweet, spicy and noble hops.
Spicy hop bitterness from the first gulp, earthy, a bit sulphuric, kinda woody too. Low malty sweetness, very faint fruitiness, some white bread. Finish is rather bitter (a small touch of coins), leaves nice hoppy spiciness in the aftertaste.
Light bodied, kinda fizzy tho. Very refreshing and crisp despite it's bitterness.
Great hops, a great Dortmunder.

Beautiful dark straw, finely cloudy to small degree, a finger of white head that kicks back to lasting cap, and hangs for the ride.

Nice bready/crackery malt aroma with just enough sweet,light noble hop spice, and super tasty, even lighter, aroma of lager yeast.

Get out of town, this is delicious. All the clean aromas are bright flavors in a super tasty sip. There are hints of lemony citrus, a nice hit of spicy hops that isn't at all rooty, but the star is a great flavored malt that is just sweet enough to power a sip that ends with just enough of every flavor to give a delicious liinger. Tasty with capital T.

Very clean flavors, beautiful finish that leaves me longing for another quaff, just the right body to be refreshing and also satisfying.

Great beer I so regret never having purchased the countless times it was within my reach. Highly recommended.

4.11/5  rDev +3.8%

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 22 May 2014

Appearance: Crystal clear golden color with nice carbonation coming up from the bottom and building into a great foamy white head. Some lacing, but nothing notable.

Smell: Smells somewhat sweet and malty, slight grassy noble hop aromas.

Taste: Magnificently malt-forward with a huge bready sweetness that finishes extremely dry and bitter from the bittering hops. Fantastic Dortmunder.

Mouthfeel: Effervescent carbonation makes this one spritzy on the tongue.

Overall: Another great beer from Ayinger and one I would highly recommend to lager lovers everywhere. This is a magnificent beer to emphasize how flavorful lagers can be- the bready bitterness makes this a fantastic beer. Would highly recommend.

A: Light golden colored body with a fluffy white long-lasting head. Good visible carbonation and it leaves lacing on the glass.

S: Spicy noble hop aroma that reaches out of the glass nicely.

T: I get some of the spicy hop flavor followed shortly by its bitterness. Not strong but it stands out in such a light beer. I don't pick up any grain character. It is tasty.

M: It has a pretty good mouthfeel. It's slightly rough around the edges but it drinks well enough. Light bodied. Finishes dry but leaves a lingering taste.

O: Overall It was a good beer. It has a good hop character which keeps the beer interesting, while being light enough to make it an easy drinker. I didn't get any grain flavor, which is the biggest disappointment. It could be a freshness issue, but there is no bottled date or import date listed on the label. There was also a slight harshness to the beer. Even still, It was an enjoyable beer to drink.
