4.18/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 17 oz euro brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Clear pale gold with a huge frothy head that reduces to a semi-patched thin lace.

Smell: Floral aroma, with a lager like sulfur note producing a deep spiciness.

Taste: Wow! One can only wonder at the complexity of this beer. Several malts blend together, creating a velvety sweet coating over the tongue. A pronounced alcoholic feel melds with a potpourri of hop flavour. Clean finish.

Notes: This is truly one of the finest. Worth the extra money if you can find it.

This beer was a clear, yellow brew with a low head. Less than one finger.

Aroma was weak... faint hops, a little bit of malt, a little sweet. I thought it should be more... maybe I had it too cold.

Taste was of mellow light and medium malts, a hint of caramel. A faint touch of hops came in at the end.

Mouthfeel was smooth and airy... unusual, to say the least. But it went down well. I could drink several of these without a problem.

Astonishing. Incredibly gorgeous to look at, with a wonderful solid-gold medium body and rich-looking cream-colored head. The aroma is incredible, I can't begin to describe it, full of malt and acidic fruit flavors; and the flavor is almost too much on top of that. Perhaps too quick a finish, but a world-class beer from a world-class brewery nonetheless.

This pale bock is a cloudy orange-gold in color. This beer is in that tradition from one of Munich’s best-known country brewers. The aroma is fruity aroman and malty. It starts with a taste of prunes and orange cream and is oily and warming in the finish.

Nice looking beer from the burnt glden color to the tight white head. Left fancy lacing as I drank. The aromas are muted caramel apple and sweet cooked brown sugar. The taste is a lovely mix of carmel and munich style malts, slight touch of noble hops and at the end, distinctly pleasant alcohol flavor. This is a classic, complex and rich beer. Mouthfeel is right on balance and as the brew slips past the tounge, a rich, creamy, full bodied feelign begs for the next sip. Slow down and enjoy this beer.

A little limp and light for a maibock. Dark fruit flavors and malt is their, however, watery and unsubstantive, warmth apparent throughout the brew enjoyment, I expected more from an Ayinger beer. No head, average Brussels lace, nice clear and dark amber.

a- very cloudy golden tone w. a thin head that quickly dissipated

s- nice spice notes over the top, but it was served w. a lemon in it, so that overpowered the beer- i am not a fan of this in general, but it was a nice combo

t- malty and spicy in a very complex way- orange peel? Definite hop flavor- better than expected because I am not generally a fan of this style.

m- very nice level of carbonation, not as thin as expected- very nice

d- refreshing and smooth, and I liked it w. the lemon- i will look for this beer again. cheap price too! $5 for 22oz @ comet cafe in MIL.
