4.11/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

one of the great german lagers here, light and fizzy and sessionable forever. pale yellow in color with as much frantic carbonation as a well shaken soda. inch of white head rests on top. nose is like cheerios, cereal grains, although light, dominant. bittering hops only, but they add a layer, timeless familiar german lager yeast. this is a beer, that while new to me, is comfortable and familiar. this is what i want when i seek a german lager. ultra refreshing, light but not wanting for flavor at all, no stale malt flavors, and a clean finish that isnt too dry. its just right, perfect for the coming warmer weather, and somehow incredibly cheap to buy in colorado at the moment. extremely high carbonation level would be distracting in another beer, but it works wonders for this already airy lager. german lager exemplified here for me, i am going to load up on this later in the week i think, very impressed with a style here that doesnt always do it for me.
